Zojoji Temple

Right by the Tokyo Tower is Zojoji Temple. Although not as grand, it was a nice temple to visit.

On the side of the temple was a little shrine and these little statues.

It wasn’t until later that I learned that the little shrine and statues are for the unborn children of Japan. The children who were miscarried, stillborn, and aborted. Such a sad but beautiful shrine to mark their parents and families’ love and remembrance for them.
