Senso-ji Temple (Asakusa Temple)
The must-see Senso-ji Temple (also known as Asakusa Temple or Asakusa Kannon Temple) combines architecture, centers of worship, Japanese gardens, and traditional markets to offer visitors a modern-day look at Japan’s rich history and culture.

Stone statues of Fujin (the Shinto wind god) and Raijin (the Shinto thunder god) guard the entrance, known as Kaminarimon or the Thunder Gate. Next is Hozomon Gate, which leads to Nakamise’s shopping streets, filled with vendors selling handicrafts and Japanese snacks. Don’t miss the Asakusa Shrine or Kannon-do Hall.

Sensoji Temple is an ancient temple with a long history and strong incense in Tokyo. You can sign for prayers with the bustling crowd, and it will be even more lively if you catch the temple fair. [Nakamise Shopping Street] There are nearly a hundred shops on both sides of the slab road, which is only 250 meters long.
