Explore Japanese gardens and medieval artifacts in Hino’s Takahata Fudo-son Temple

Hino City, Tokyo



The city of Hino 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 unique medieval temple heralded as one of the three great Fudo temples in 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 to this day. Shinsengumi fans can’t miss the statue of Shinsengumi vice-commander Hijikata Toshizo near the pagoda, which memorializes the Hino-born samurai’s service.
