Tokyo's Zojo-ji Temple in Spring

With the majestic Tokyo Tower always in the background

I like to go back to my favorite temples a few times a year so that I can enjoy how they change with the seasons. Zojo-ji is one of them. The obvious draw in late winter and early spring are the plum (ume) and cherry (sakura) blossoms. Combine that with its easy access (four different train lines stop near the temple), the hauntingly beautiful jizo statues, the Buddhist chants spilling over into the grounds from the temple, and the ever-present, ever-majestic Tokyo Tower towering overhead, and you have one of the most interesting temples in the city.
