About Tsukiji Hongan-ji Temple
Tsukiji Honganji Temple, officially known as “Jodo Shinshu Honganji Temple” or “Honganji Tsukiji Betsuin” and commonly known as Tsukiji Honganji Temple, is one of the most famous temples in Tokyo, with its main deity, Amida Kyojin. The original Tsukiji Honganji Temple was built in 1617, but unfortunately a fire destroyed it and the Shogunate government refused to rebuild it on the same site.
The current Tsukiji Honganji Temple was designed by Itō Chūta, a renowned Japanese architectural historian, and was constructed between 1931 and 1934. It is known for its unique architectural structure, and is a temple of the Honganji school of Jodo Shinshu. Tsukiji Honganji Temple is one of the most representative temples in Tokyo, a separate temple from Nishi-Honganji Temple in Kyoto City, influenced by the architectural styles of Southeast Asia, and is one of the most popular pilgrimage sites in the city of Tokyo, Japan, with a steady stream of people coming and going every day.

From the exterior, I felt a bit of India.
It was indeed the Tsukiji Honganji Temple.
