A beautiful Chinese temple in Chinatown that surprisingly few people know about.
Most Japanese tourists and locals aren’t even savvy of this spot because it’s off of the main road.
Very ornate inside and out. A must see in your visit to Chinatown.

This is always a fun temple to visit. Not only does it have a beautiful gate, but the grand dual stairway makes the temple grounds feel much bigger than it is. The Chinese New Year's celebration is always crowded, but worth going for the variety of dance performances and music. The lion dances are great fun as they move through the crowd, "biting" people's heads to give them good fortune. And who wouldn't want to put their head in a celebratory lion's mouth for a year of good fortune?
