Officially Daikyō-ji (but popularly known as Shibamata Taishakuten), this is a 17th century Nichiren-shū Buddhist temple.
Admission to the temple itself is free, but if you want to visit the gallery and the garden, there is a combined ticket for ¥400. We highly recommend paying the extra for viewing the gallery and the garden as both are excellent.
There is also a nearby ferry which is attached to the temple called Yagiri-no-wtashi which crosses the nearby Edo River. The ferry is a small, oncovered boat that can carry about a dozen passengers. It has some renown to people in Japan, but doesn’t hold much appeal for foreign visitors.
