One of the temples that I would highly recommend in Tokyo is the Nishiairai Daishi Temple. This is actually one of the great 3 temples in the Kanto Area. Moreover, this is one place I know that allows you to explore without you worrying about large crowds of people.
The reasons why this temple is famous is because, you have festivals that take place here all year round, a nearby by pond that has mixture of orange and white ” Koi ” fish and have many shops that sell ” DARUMA “. Daruma are red round looking dolls that have white dots ( the eyes ) and the reason behind that is to paint one eye in black and make a wish. If your wish comes true, you paint the other eye as way of expressing gratitude.
The other cool thing about this place is that, it is only a 7 min walk from the new shared accommodation ( NISHIARAI DAISHI TOKYO GUEST HOUSE) opening on the 1st of January, 2019!
Coming to Japan at the beginning of the year and trying to look for an accommodation even just for a few nights will be really hectic and pricey.
Even though this accommodation is located on the outside of Tokyo, it is an ideal location for those coming directly from Narita Airport because. Narita connects directly to Nippori station which is where you can switch to the Nippori Toneri Liner and get to a station called Nishiaraidaishi Nishi.
Some of you may be wondering by now how much it costs to stay for daily stay. These rates start from 2,800 yen/night per bed and for those of you who would like to stay on a monthly stay, the rent is only 38,000 yen (this includes all the utilities) plus free WiFi internet. Please note that we the minimum stay on a daily stay is 3 night.
Please note that on a monthly stay, the only payment besides the rent is the deposit, which 20,000 yen and at the end of your stay you will received part of it refunded.
