One of Tokyo’s oldest and most significant Buddhist temples, Senso-ji is located in the city’s Asakusa District. Dedicated to the Bodhisattva of compassion, the first temple was founded as far back as 645 CE. Destroyed during World War II, Senso-ji was eventually rebuilt and stands now as a symbol of rebirth and peace. Many small shops line the main street approaching the temple. It is a popular area for tourists and among the more well-known parts of Tokyo. Each spring a grand festival is held in and around Senso-ji. Over the course of a few days upwards of 2 million people visit the temple complex.
Senso-ji is one of Tokyo's most colorful and popular temple. This place is always busy, particularly on weekends. So you should consider visiting in the evening to see it with fewer people and the buildings beautifully lit up. The beauty of the temple is unquestionably impressive. Its a nice place to spend the day alone or with your family. It’s a famous tourist spot in the heart of the city. There are so many street food as well souvenir shops that surrounds the area.
One of my favorite sightseeing spot in Tokyo — Senso-ji Temple in Asakusa. The huge red lantern hanging from the Kaminarimon Gate on the right side has become the symbol of Asakusa itself! 🏮
When you pass through the Kaminarimon Gate in Asakusa, you’ll arrive at one of the oldest and most famous shopping districts in Japan — Nakamise Dori. It’s an ideal shopping spot for traditional gifts and snacks, and of course these cute strawberry ‘dango’ caught my attention! 🍓 Had to queue for half an hour for these cute cakes. Guess I just couldn’t help myself 🤷🏻♀️
Wearing Kimono in the cold winter is not easy actually, but very interesting experience. Anyone have tried?
This is the second time I have come to Sensoji Temple. As a tourist attraction, there is no need to say that people and people are full of people. Whenever Sensoji Temple is full, it is necessary to ask for a marriage and a marriage. Be sure to take it home. If you are unfortunate enough to get a bad sign, be sure to tie it to the pole around the signing place to eliminate bad luck. For single friends, you must ask for a marriage. It is said that you are super-feeling~ dont forget to take a photo of Meimei. The wishes come true, you must remember to come back.
