Zōjō-ji (増上寺)


A temple with over 600 years of history that is famous as the family temple of the Tokugawa clan. Six shoguns and Imperial Princess Kazunomiya are interred here, among other historical figures. It is said that visiting this temple will bring you luck, so if you plan on having a go at the lottery, be sure to pay your respects here first! An heirloom exhibition room opened in April 2015; cost of entry is 700 yen (or 1,000 yen if you also wish to visit the Tokugawa tomb). This temple is only 10 minutes away from Tokyo Tower, so if you’re in the area, why not stop by?
