Plans to construct the temple were announced 9 August 1975, and Spencer W. Kimball, president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 1973 to 1985, dedicated the Tokyo Japan Temple 27 October 1980. The temple serves Latter-day Saints in northern Japan and Vladivostok, Russia.

The 52,590-square-foot temple’s exterior is structural steel and reinforced concrete faced with 289 panels of precast stone, having the appearance of light gray granite.
