【Sightseeing】Sensoji

I went to Sensoji in Asakusa!



This is the gate with a big red lantern called  Kaminarimon.
Here is a shooting spot so many foreigners takes pictures.

There are many foreign tourists in Asakusa.
I feel a unique atmosphere. Everyone takes pictures!

This is a five-story pagoda. It is said that Asakusa’s five-story pagoda was built in 942 AD.

Nakamise street leads you from Kaminari-gate to Hogura-gate. There are a lot of shops along the street which are originated from the Edo period, and attracts a lot of tourists.

There is also official site.

You can see Tokyo sky tree.

I bought amulets and bills here.

They are popular for foreigners.

This is the Senso-ji Temple. They are Tokyo’s oldest temple.

There are many souvenir shops for foreigners.
There is also a place that can rental kimono.
