Pipe organ concerts at Tsukiji Honganji

November 25, 2016 at 12:20 pm - 12:50 pm


On the last Friday of every month, the pipe organ that stands at the back of the main hall inside the Tsukiji Honganji temple is tickled awake. Running for only half an hour between 12:20 and 12:50pm, these monthly concerts are a rare exhibition of a pipe organ in use, particularly in Japan. This organ comes from what used to be West Germany, and was donated by the Society for the Promotion of Buddhism. The architecture of the temple itself also resembles styles from both east and western cultures. The pipe organ is made of 2000 differently sized tubes which make sound as wind pressure passes through them when triggered by the keyboard. It’s likely that you’ll hear classical music from Bach and Mozart at the lunchtime concerts.
