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.

Traffic Raiders: Toei Asakusa Line Get off at Asakusa Station
Asakusa is the birthplace of Tokyo, and Asakusa is the oldest temple in Tokyo. When you come to Tokyo, you must go to Asakusa.
More than 1400 years ago, a pair of brothers picked up a golden statue of Guanyin while fishing, so they raised a temple to worship this statue. This is the prototype of Sensoji Temple. In the days that followed, the Asakusa Temple was repeatedly fired and rebuilt many times. It eventually became a large group of monasteries and became a playground for the nearby Edo citizens. In the Edo period, the Tokugawa family of the political giants designated Asakusa Temple as a place of worship for the Tokugawa shogunate, and this area gradually began to prosper.
Enter the Sensoji Temple and pass through the Thunder Gate first. The Wind Thunder Gate is one of the most famous buildings here, built to pray for the world's Taiping Grain. However, it did not appear at the same time as Sensoji Temple, but it was not until 300 years later that it stood in front of the gate of Sensoji Temple. This gate is also a symbol of Sensoji Temple and even all of Japan. There are statues of evil spirits around Leimen, named Raytheon and Fengshen, which are the origin of the name of Fenglei Shenmen. His dazzling and huge red lanterns have added a lot of lively and festive atmosphere to Sensoji Temple. Don't underestimate this lantern, it is said that it can be more than 600 kilograms!
Through the wind and thunder God Gate, it is the bustling Zhongjishi Commercial Street. It was so dazzling that I had to pass quickly in order not to deviate from the theme. Its not that its not exciting enough, but I hope that I can take a leisurely stroll while I am leaving. The two most famous buildings in the
temple are the non-class and the five-storied pagoda. This church is the place where Guanyin is worshipped, also known as Guanyintang. The interior of the palace is divided between the former and the Austrian. There is a secret deity between the two, and the front is a Guanyin image. Inside the five-storied pagoda, there is a spiritual hall that houses the spiritual card. The relics from Sri Lanka are stored on the top of the tower.
A year in the end, Sensoji Temple is always full of people, tourists, pilgrims shoulder to shoulder, incense continues. Every year around New Year's Day, people come here to pray for the new year.

Dedicated to the Bodhisattva of compassion, the first temple was founded as far back as 645 CE.

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.
