Highly recommended. Not only the temple but also soba restaurants there are very good. You can observe how they make soba.

If you want to glimpse another side of Tokyo, a visit here is highly recommended. It is the second-oldest temple in Tokyo (733!), and the center of a complex of religious sites around springs that emerge from the topography of the area. The streets leading up to the temple area are lively with restaurants and sweets and souvenir shops. Soba noodles are the area specialty. There are also two botanical gardens, a hot spring, and a castle mound in the immediate surroundings. Different seasons bring different events and natural beauty, but the rainy season of June/July and the autumn leaves in November/December are particularly atmospheric times to visit.
