Reiyukai Shakaden

Buddhist Temple in Roppongi, Akasaka & Around

Reiyukai is a spin-off Buddhism-based sect started in 1930 and this unmissable, monolithic building is its headquarters. The enormous stepped pyramid roof is clad in black granite – climbing the mammoth staircase to enter the 3500-seater Main Hall feels more like entering an alien spaceship than a temple.
