Time Out says

Moved to its current spot north of Yoyogi-Uehara Station from Mejirodai in 1926, this smallish temple stands out with its stone pagoda, which is said to date back to the late 17th century. Look out for crowds on New Year's Eve, when Unshoji's handsome temple bell – one of the few in Tokyo to escape confiscation by the wartime authorities – is rung 108 times to welcome the new year in traditional Buddhist fashion.
