Tokyo | Takahata Fudo-son Temple in Hino

Explore Japanese Gardens and Medieval Artifacts in Hino City's Takahata Fudo-son Temple
Hino City invites you to explore Tokyo’s nature, culture, and history—without the crowds or tourist gimmicks. The best place to experience all three in a single afternoon is Takahata Fudo-son, a medieval temple heralded as one of the three great Fudo temples of the Kanto region. As you enter the temple grounds, you’ll notice gardens and hiking trails to the left. The picturesque gardens are carefully designed to flatter every season; in autumn, they frame the pagoda with golden ginkgo leaves and Japanese maples. A short walk up the wooded hills will give you a panoramic view of Hino and beyond. Takahata Fudo-son is also a bastion of historic Japanese architecture and religious tradition. It houses several nationally registered cultural properties, including the main hall where they hold public Goma services today. Shinsengumi fans can’t miss the statue of Shinsengumi vice-commander Hijikata Toshizo near the pagoda, which remembers the Hino-born samurai’s service. Takahata Fudo-son is a two-minute walk from Takahatafudo Station, which is accessible directly from Shinjuku in around 30 minutes via a Keio Line special express train.
