Going on a trip to Tokyo without going to Senso-Ji Temple, would be a bit like visiting Paris without going to see the Eiffel Tower. Located in the Asakusa district, Sensô-Ji is the oldest temple Buddhist of Tokyo. Erected in honor of the goddess Kannon, you will be dazzled by the Senso-ji Temple and awed by its traditional beauty. Once there, you will cross the main arch "Nakamise-dôri" leading to the Temple, where you will find stands of traditional items. Then, you will go to the impressive portal of the sanctuary: the Kaminari-mon (thunder’s door), where the red largest lantern in Japan is suspended. Located in the center of an extraordinary Buddhist complex, the Sensô-Ji is not the only magical spot of your visit. Your visit will take you to charming temples, the five-storeys pagoda, the Japanese garden and its artificial pond.This place attracts every day thousands of visitors wanting to discover Japan in its most beautiful authenticity.It is a must see !
