Shrine of Confucius, Tokyo Japan

We stumbled across the Shrine of Confucius while walking around Tokyo, toward Nakamise Shopping Street and Sensoji Temple. Confucius Temple is hidden away behind a gate and greenery. We walked in and looked around the peaceful garden grounds. Were sharing a few pictures of our time and the treasures we saw while there. We were told, this is one of the few non replica temples in all of Japan. Now, we are a Christian family, and all Strong believers, so we enjoy learning about all other religions without worry of waiver in our faith. So check out what we enjoyed.

I read this is the largest statue of Confusion in the World. It was big, but not overbearing big, but that makes since as he was wise and simple, not extravagant. I loved the exposed tree roots, and I felt drawn to this status. We continued walking thru the garden toward this large dark temple.
Its raining and we are enjoying the rain, because it is super hot and humid.

It is a $4.00 donation to see inside the temple, so David and I go in, but the kids wait outside in the rain. Inside we learn about a water drinking well that captures rain water to drink later.

There is a lot of very interesting artifacts inside. It feels dark, peaceful, ominous and fascinating. We stay for about 25 minutes, just looking around and imaging what each of these items history. I have a huge imagination, so there is a lot of Indiana Jones and zen ninja fights going on in my mind while walking thru this temple.

We end our tour and collect the kids and walk on to the next adventure.

    1. Yeah, he is my favorite still. When I was a kid working on my parents farm, I would dream I was him and the chores were adventures. David my husband, he still thinks he is him.

  3. That all is beautiful! I think the trees behind that lovely statue are the perfect trees to live there & the roots on the ground before it are wicked pretty! I agree learning of other beliefs is valuable, in a sense. Any single religion may possibly not have a monopoly on truth – who knows for certain? Gems can be discovered in numerous places!

    1. Exactly plus, if your strong enough in your faith, you will only make it stronger as you learn more. And that would be a great lizard house, because it is so hot and humid there and peaceful.

      1. Agreed. Aww, Murph would love it there then, but ya know, those darn car rides lasting more than a moment frazzle his cute lil’ nerves! He may never forgive me for a plane ride, I’d demand he remain with me, maybe pay for another seat. Emotional support lizard, right : )
