    Lots of Japanese stuff

    Tremendous views of the Temple, Hozoman Gate, & Five-story pagoda. Expect a crowd. Make sure to do the purification trough, pray at (& ring) the bells, and shake the metal boxes to learn your fortune.

    Where you go to do all your souvenirs shopping. You’ll find 80% of everything Japanese you need. The remaining 20% will be the more unique stuff, walking around Tokyo.

    It's a huge temple and also a tourist spot so it gets really crowded at times. There's a lot of souvenirs and Japanese rice crackers as well as other snacks sold along the way to Sensoji Temple.

    Easily my most favorite place in Tokyo, Japan. Has some of the finest temples around and depicts Japanese culture at its best.

    Try visiting at night when it is beautifully lit up and in the early morning. The shops will all be closed at those times but much less crowded and easier to get better photos.
  • Jeffrey K.
    Pick out some souvenirs from one of the shops along the street.

    A must see for visitors to Japan, this is Tokyo's oldest temple. The street leading up to it is lined with shops and food galore!

    Been here during Golden Week. Packed, but nice. Try your look and look for a good fortune by drawing sticks.

    Nice shopping strip leading up to the temple, you can dress up in traditional yukata for nice photos. Temple itself is under construction so you couldn't see inside but still a nice wander in the area

    Despite hundreds of tourists, this is my favorite shrine in Tokyo. Different feelings during the day and at night, both magical.

    Lots of tourists but worth it. There are less crowded temples surrounding to take good pictures.

    Avoid the crowds and come at night! It was very empty, and there is enough light to still capture the temple.

    Tourist place with a Shinto shrine just after a walk through souvenir stalls. Expect crowds, smiles. Positive experience as we knew it's a very popular place (especially weekends/holidays)

    Overcrowded with tourists. Also they hosting huge festival Sanja Matsuri in the middle of May, it's three days of madness with two millions of religious people around, don't miss it.

    I was sad to learn that this building is a rebuilt model of the original, which was destroyed in WW2, but the architecture is still gorgeous and the tourist bits worthy of a visit on their own merit.

    Stunning. I'd recommend visiting the surrounding grounds as well, as they are just as beautiful.

    Arrive early, avoid the crowds and have breakfast in the food stands. Avoid the crab one, it's just crab substitute.
