    Beautiful

    Beautiful temple, the oldest one in Japan. The thunder gate coming up to the temple is breathtaking. Always busy, but worth it. The stalls leading up to the temple is great for souvenir shopping.

    Beautiful ornate temple surrounded by gardens, shops, cafes, gates and monuments. Saturday afternoon it was so crowded but we moved along stopping to admire the kimonos & statues.

    Senso-ji Shrine

    Just wow - beautiful and incredibly serene despite being completely packed with tourists. Lots of opportunities to buy lucky charms and ways of saying, sharing and posting prayers.

Additional Information

Introduction

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.
