The Great Buddha

The Great Buddha, designated a National Treasure, is Japan's largest Buddhist image after Todai-ji's in Nara. The present Great Buddha is the second at the site. The original image, carved from wood in 1243, was destroyed by a storm five years later. The present sculpture was cast in bronze around 1252. This was a remarkable feat, for the image is of colossal dimensions, with a weight of 125 metric tons and a height of 11.47 meters.

Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine

Founded at its present location by Yoritomo Minamoto in 1180, Tsurugaoka Hachimangu remains one of the most popular Shinto shrines in the Kanto region.

Sensoji Temple

Sensoji Temple in Asakusa: Sensoji is the oldest and most impressive temple in Tokyo. The main hall was first built in 645 to house a tiny golden statue of Kannon, the goddess of mercy, that had been repeatedly hauled up in fishing nets despite being thrown back into the river. The temple precincts bustle with people praying, buying fortunes, shopping or sightseeing.

Edo-Tokyo Museum

The Edo-Tokyo Museum shows how the 15th-century village of Edo grew to be Tokyo, one of the largest cities in the world. The museum, established in 1993, recounts this story of remarkable growth through life-size replicas and detailed scale models. There is a life-size reconstruction of the Kabuki Theater, and reconstructions of Edo Castle and Nihonbashi Bridge. The museum's futuristic building was designed after an elevated-floor type warehouse. It rises 62.2 meters, which was the height of the tallest tower of Edo Castle. With a total area of about 30,000 square meters, it is 2.4 times larger than the playing field of Tokyo Dome.

Hamarikyu Garden

The only surviving seaside garden of Japan's Edo Period, Hamarikyu Garden was constructed as a residence for a Japanese feudal lord in the 17th century and later was an official duck hunting grounds for the Tokugawa Shogunate before passing into the hands of the Imperial family during the Meiji Period. The garden is rich in flowers and sports a tea house on a small island within a pond. Hamarikyu Garden can be reached by various train lines, but ferries on the Sumida River also dock nearby.
