What people are saying:

The gate of Asakusa Ji Temple is called 'Raimon' and the official name is' fuzuijin mon gate, 'and there are two commanders of the wind and thunder gods who are fierce around the entrance, and they guard Asakusa Ji Temple. The most famous of the thunder gates is the huge lantern hanging in front of the gate, which can be seen far from the black-bottomed white-edged "thunder gate", adding a lot of style to the Asakusa Temple. The gates have a length of about 140 meters paving stone to visit the Shinto to the main hall for Guanyin statue.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Kaminarimon, or "Thunder Gate," is the outer of two large entrance gates leading to the Senso-ji temple complex in Tokyo's Asakusa district. The gate is dominated by a large red lantern displaying the gate's name in Japanese. First built in 941 CE, the gate was moved to it's current location in 1635. Over the next few hundred years, it was twice burnt down. The present incarnation was dedicated in 1960. Kaminarimon and Senso-ji are very popular attractions with many Japanese and foreign tourists milling about, snapping photos, and enjoying the day.
