Tokyo, formerly known as Edo, now officially known as Tokyo Metropolis, is the capital of Japan. It is also the busiest and largest city in Japan. Under Japanese law, Tokyo is designated as a to, meaning metropolis. This beautiful city is also the most populous metropolitan area in the world. It houses the seat of the Emperor of Japan and the government. Tokyo has been the seat of government since 1603, when the city was turned into the headquarters of Shogun Tokugawa leyasu. A shogun was the military ruler of Japan. They were also the de facto rulers of the country in the name of the Emperor. It became the capital of the country in 1868 after Emperor Meiji moved his seat here. During that time, Edo was renamed Tokyo. Tokyo was also known as “Tokei.”

 

History

wonderfultokyo001

Originally, Tokyo was a fishing village, known as Edo, guarded by the Edo clan. Later, in 1590, Shogun Tokugawa leyasu turned Edo into his base. In 1603, he was promoted as a shogun, and the town was transformed into the center of his military government. By the 18th century, Edo progressed into one of the biggest cities in the world with close to one million citizens. Although the Emperor lived in the imperial capital, known as Kyoto, Tokyo managed to rise into the de facto capital of Japan.

Also, during this period, the city of Tokyo enjoyed a long duration of peace, known as the Pax Tokugawa. To preserve that peace, Edo had a firm policy of seclusion, which helped to prolong the period of Pax Tokugawa. The absence of serious military threats and war allowed Edo to allocate the resources to rebuilding when natural disasters like earthquakes and tsunamis struck. One of the major disasters in the late Edo period was the 1855 Edo earthquake. The 7.0 magnitude earthquake triggered a tsunami, causing a death toll of between 7,000 and 10,000 people.

After about 263 years, the period of Pax Tokugawa came to an end, when the American Commodore, Matthew C. Perry, negotiated the opening of the Shimoda and Hakodate ports, which led to the inflation of goods. Due to the high expense, it triggered a public uproar. Citizens of Edo were extremely upset. Rebellious demonstrations took place, and supporters of the Meiji Emperor took advantage of the situation and managed to overthrow the last Tokugawa shogun, Yoshinobu Tokugawa, in 1867.

Later, in 1869, the city was renamed Tokyo when the 17-year-old Emperor Meiji moved in. Tokyo was separated into two sections, Shitamachi and Yamanote. Tokyo was already the cultural and political center of the nation, and with the Emperor’s presence in the city, it became a de facto imperial capital. Where the Imperial Palace resides now was where the former Edo castle was located. On May 1, 1889 the city of Tokyo was established officially.

In 1944 and 1945, during World War Two, the bombing of Tokyo started and an estimated 75,000 to 200,000 civilians were killed and more than half of the city was destroyed. Between May 9 and 10 in 1945, close to 700,000 incendiary bombs were set off, causing the destruction of over 276,000 buildings and the death toll rose to 100,000 civilians. During these years, more than half of the population were killed; the population of Tokyo dropped from 6,700,000 to merely 2,800,000.

After the war, Tokyo was fully reconstructed. The 1964 Summer Olympics was held there. During the 1970s, Tokyo rose into one of the fastest-growing cities. Its commuter rail network and subway became the most hectic public transportation system in the world. The International Olympic Committee has chosen Tokyo to host the 2020 Summer Olympics, which will make it the first Asian city to host the Olympic Games twice.

13. Hachiko Statue

Hachiko is the name of a dog of the Akita breed. His real-life story has touched the hearts of millions around the world.

A rare picture of Hachiko

A rare picture of Hachiko

The story started when a professor in University of Tokyo, named Hidesaburo Ueno, took in this golden-brown Akita and named him Hachiko. Since then, Hachiko would always greet his owner near the Shibuya Station at the end of each day. This continued until May 1925.

One day, Professor Ueno failed to return to the train station. He had suffered from a cerebral hemorrhage while at work and passed away. The innocent Hachiko did not know about the passing of his beloved owner and he continued to wait at Shibuya Station until he finally passed away in 1935, 10 years after his owner’s death.

Hachiko was cremated and his ashes were buried in Aoyama Cemetery in Tokyo, next to his beloved master.

Later, a bronze statue of Hachiko was built in front of the Shibuya Station to commemorate his faithfulness. His fur was preserved and mounted. It is now on display at the National Science Museum of Japan in Tokyo.

20. Sengakuji Temple

wonderfultokyo070

Sengakuji is a temple located near Shinagawa Station in Tokyo, and it is famed for its graveyard where the “47 Ronin” (also known as the “master-less samurai from Ako”) were buried. Their story, often mistakenly believed to be a legend, is also known as the Ako Incident.

It centers on a group of samurai who were left without a master after their daimyo (feudal lord) known as Asano Naganori was forced to commit seppuku (ritual suicide) for attacking a court official named Kira Yoshinaka. After months of intense planning, the ronin eventually killed Kira to avenge their master. Due to committing the crime of murder, the 47 ronin were then also condemned to commit seppuku.

There is a museum that was built to commemorate the 47 ronin. December 14th marks the anniversary of the 47 ronin avenging their master. A festival is held every year on this date to commemorate the event. Their remarkable story gained popularity in Japanese culture as it embodies sacrifice, loyalty and honour, characteristics that are still valued within daily life in Japan.

    This article certainly has comprehensive information for a tourist visiting Tokyo.

    If you are visiting Tokyo do not miss the Great Kamakura Buddha, a bronze Amitabha Buddha statue which is the 2nd tallest Buddha statue in Japan located at located at the Kōtoku-in Temple in Kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture. The bronze statue probably dates from 1252, in the Kamakura period, according to temple records. JR Yokosuka Line connects Tokyo Station directly with Kamakura Station to the great Kamakura Buddha. The one way trip takes just under an hour .

    Also do make time to experience the traditional Japanese hot spring and spa in Tokyo area. Visiting Japan will never be complete without a dip in a hot spring or onsen which has numerous health benefits.

    Beautiful Tokyo. I have always heard feedback that Tokyo is a beautiful country to visit. I love the scenery. Some of the places i find interesting are….3. Imperial Palace and East Garden. 18. Mount Takao. 2. Meiji Jingu Shrine. 17. Tokyo Dome City. 20. Sengakuji Temple. 6. Tokyo Disneyland & Disneysea. Thank you Beatrix for this wonderful article. Keep up the good work!👍😎

  4. Lim Han Nee on Sep 8, 2017 at 7:01 pm

    Tokyo is a beautiful city and also the most populous metropolitan area in the world. However, the most impressive and enduring aspect of Tokyo is its irrepressibility and resilience. Although more than half the city was destroyed in WW II, and an estimated 75000 to 200000 civilians were destroyed, yet, it rose up again so siwftly. As testimony to this, the 1964 Summer Olympics was held in Tokyo! In 2020 the second Summer Olympics will be held there again, making it the first Asian country to host the Olympic Games twice.

    Tokyo is an amazing city with a unique blend of the ancient, as in the ancient shrines and temples, and the modern, as in the Ginza shopping, dining and entertainment district and the Tokyo Skytree.The oldest Buddhist temple here is the Sensoji, built in 645, a very well-visited temple dedicated to the Bodhisattva Kannon. The oldest zoo is the Ueno Zoo, with over 3000 animals from 400 different species. There is a 17th Century teahouse and a 5 storey Pagoda in the zoo grounds!

    Other interesting places to visit include the Meiji Shrine and its lovely garden, the Tokyo Disneyland and Disney Seas – a theme park occupying 115 acres of land,the famous Ginza shopping, dining and entertainment district , Mount Takao , a beautiful natural spot from which one can get breathtaking views of the cities around.

    Yes, Tokyo is a place to visit where the new and the old exist side by side and are equally fascinating. A must not miss tourist spot is where the statue of the dog,Hachiko is, a symbol of faithfulness, as the true touching story of this beloved dog reveals .

    Tokyo has many interesting spots for people to be entertained and for fashion and modern living. From the tomb of the 47 ronins, masterless samuari, honour is so important for the Japanese psyche and that honour drives the Japanese to excel in all the things that they set out to accomplish.

    I would like to visit Hachiko’s memorial, a dog who waited daily for its master although the master had already passed away.

    Thank you for Rinpoche and the blog team to come with this amazing blog post that talks about the Green School. This school is very amazing because the way it is being set up is very different than conventional schools. It merges learning with nature which proven to be effective.

    Nowadays, people want to be in the forest, and near the greens. They do not want to have the city life which they grew up in because it is very stressful and very unhealthy for the body and also the mind. Concrete cities are full of pollution which is very bad for our health and also our mental health. That is why alot of the people living in the cities are depressed or anger some. These negative emotions arise easier when we are in the city.

    What is amazing about this school is also the way they introduce education into the children’s lives in a non-conventional way. From the video, it looks like the children are enjoying this way of education more than the conventional way because they are allowed to express themselves more.

    In Asia, black magic is not uncommon, it is still practiced by people. People use black magic to take revenge or to get what they want. When people are disturbed by black magic or spirits, they will usually go and seek for a master to help them.

    However, instead of waiting for the unfortunate to happen, we can start a practice that can prevent us from being disturbed. Dorje Shugden practice is very effective for that. Tsem Rinpoche is so kind to compile a very short prayer for us to do daily. Doing prayer is like doing exercise if we do it every day, our protection energy of Dorje Shugden will grow stronger every day.

    Do you believe there are people who have the ability to call upon some local deities or an enlightened being to enter into their bodies to communicate with us? Growing up in a traditional Chinese Taoist family, I believe that. My grandmother sometimes took me to a trance session. When the mediums (oracles) take trance, they are able to give some kind of prediction or advice. Trance taking is also practiced in other Asian cultures, for examples, Tibet, Korea, Mongolia, etc.

    Traditionally, Dorje Shugden is depicted in wrathful form. This particular Dorje Shugden of Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen is depicted in a peaceful form. The peaceful Dorje Shugden looks very gentle and more approachable to most people who are not familiar with Dharma protectors, especially here in Malaysia. Whether it is in wrathful form or peaceful form, the function and efficacy of Dorje Shugden in helping us to remove the obstacles are the same.

    The Dorje Shugden ban has caused so many suffering to Shugden people as well as the non-Shugden people. There were peace and harmony within the Buddhist community and everything and everyone was fine. All 4 sects of Tibetan Buddhism existed in harmony and everyone just mind their own business and practice the practices that they prefer. There is no fighting, no violence, no harsh speech and most importantly everyone still co-existed in the same community without any problems.

    Then the Tibetan government came out with the Dorje Shugden ban and all hell breaks loose. Shugden people are being accused as demon worshippers and against His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Monks are being beaten up and treated harshly and even chased out of their own monastery. Can you believe it? Peaceful monks are being chased out of their own monastery and all because they choose to practice the practice that their holy guru gave them.

    The ban is totally unnecessary because as a democratic body, claimed by the Tibetan government, they should accept any religion and any faiths as long as they do not break the law. However, the Tibetan government went on persecuting Dorje Shugden people and even forbid them to use public schools and public hospitals. What kind of government will deny the 2 most basic necessity which is education and health care to their own people? This shows the true color of the Tibetan government and they do not care about their own people at all.

    Tales With My Lama: Why Rinpoche Has To Suffer

    This is something that many have questioned and here is the answer. Why does an attained being like Rinpoche has to suffer so much to bring the Dharma to us? This is how compassion works for a Bodhisattva that he is.

    Plastic is a very convenient invention, it holds things for us and it is reusable. But we did not think it is no biodegradable and when animals eat it by accident, it will cause them to die. Nowadays, there are many plastic wastes in the oceans, it is one of the causes of death for sea animals. Sea animals eat plastic by accident and they are not able to digest the it. As a result, it affects their digestive system and causes them to die.

    We have finally realised that and there are many awareness campaigns being launched all over the world to stop using plastic bags. In Malaysia, many cities have also banned the usage of plastic bag in the supemarket or they choose to use biodegradable plastic bag. People are encouraged to use their own reusable bags for their shopping. We may not reverse the damage we have done to our environment immediately but it will definitely change the situation slowly. Everyone has the responsibility to save and protect our environment but it has to start from ourselves first.

    In Buddhist belief, high-level meditators and enlightened beings can attain the realisation of Emptiness (the highest wisdom) and Bodhicitta (the ultimate compassionate wish to benefit others) through tremendous effort and practice. Since they have achieved such powerful attainments, they become worthy objects of refuge. That is why they naturally infuse their environments with the blessings of their attainments, especially in the areas where they engaged in their practices.

    Hence, there are many places that are associated with great meditators, enlightened beings and mahasiddhas who have shown miracles. In some of the places where such great beings have practised or appeared, self-arisen images of the deities have manifested. These images appear miraculously in order to benefit sentient beings by becoming objects of worship and veneration through which we are able to connect with the enlightened beings, generate powerful aspirations, and accumulate tremendous amounts of merit.

    Did you know Dungkar Monastery was home to a sacred statue of Guru Rinpoche that was consecrated by Guru Rinpoche himself? The monastery was founded in the earlier half of the 16th Century by Drubpa Ulong Jongnay Rinpoche. Later, the monastery became the seat of the legendary and highly revered Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche. According to His Holiness the 13th Dalai Lama, Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche was the emanation of Lama Tsongkhapa.

    Beautiful art painting of Four-Armed White Ganapati and Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. With these two together forms a powerful combination. Ganapati is considered to be an emanation of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion, It would be wonderful printed out for our altar.
    Thank you for sharing.

    Wow…….beautiful art painting of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, Brahmarupa Mahakala, and Dorje Shugden. Trülku Drakpa Gyeltsen was an important Gelugpa lama and a contemporary of the 5th Dalai Lama. Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen is basically the lama believed to have arose to become the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. Interesting brief story of a Great Lama.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

On January 26, 2019, Venerable Arjia Rinpoche who is a close friend of the Dalai Lama asked the Tibetans to stop discriminating against people who practice Dorje Shugden and regionalism. His speech called for unity for the preservation of Tibet\'s unique culture and religion and all Tibetans should be friendly with each other regardless of religion and regional origins. His speech is powerful and much needed at this time. Very beautiful. Thank you Arjia Rinpoche. Please see here: https://bit.ly/2CdOz1A

Many years ago, I had this 5ft Four-Armed Avalokitesvara made. It was done in Delhi, escorted to Tsem Ladrang in Gaden Shartse Monastery South India. Then my students and myself offered mantras, relics, jewels and brocades on this beautiful image as per tradition. Special rituals were done to consecrate it. Then I offered this image to the main shrine of Gaden Shartse Monstery for the sangha and visitors to pay homage to. The sangha and abbot were very happy. Till this day this beautiful image of compassion is still there in Gaden Shartse Monastery along with the many other thangkas, statues, repairs and offerings I had the honor to offer to the monastery. May all be blessed by Avalokitesvara, Tsem Rinpoche

  • If there were more schools like this, then our kids would grow up with more caring awareness and kind emotions towards our environment and the people around them. They would grow up knowing that chasing materialism is not going to bring any happiness. I hope very much more schools like this would materialise. I hope in my future life I can attend a school like this. Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    1 years ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
