Zojoji Temple in Tokyo is not only one of the city's most famous temples but is also one of its oldest. In fact, the main gate to the temple is the oldest wooden structure in Tokyo. Between the architecture and deep sense of culture surrounding the temple, many visitors might miss the fact that Zozoji also has some of Tokyo's most lovely cherry blossom trees. However, if you come during the right window of the Spring, you can't miss it. The sakura (cherry blossoms) on the Zojoji grounds are splendid, and mixed with culture, architecture, and history of the temple, it's a must-see sight for anyone planning a trip to Japan.
