    One of the gates to Sensoji temple. To reach the temple, you will pass by Nakamise st., a traditional shopping street that offers many souvenirs, Kimonos & sweets.. *you will spot many wearing Kimonos

    The lantern is huge! There's a stretch of stalls selling souvenirs, renting kimonos for tourist to try them out. It's a must to try the melon bun! They sell them while it's hot!

    Most beautiful at night time, best walk to senso-ji, just outside asakusa station, a must visit and must photograph! ⛩📷🏮

    If you are in "shitamachi" area of Tokyo, this is a must. You enter the gate, walk though a street full of shops, see a smoky tripod (get some smoke on you) and then pray!

    It's always crowded here, but the shopping street is lovely. Get some traditional Japanese sweets here. Try the fortunes! Inside of the temple sometimes closed for private ceremonies.

    After your Buddhist experience go-to the Sake Bar "Daimasu" (half way on the right on your way back just on the corner of the arcade) Checkout their tasting menu! (you may smoke inside)

    It is the outer of two large entrance gates to the Sensō-ji in Asakusa. The gate, with its big red lantern and 2 statues of God of Thunder and God of Wind, is popular with tourists.

    I almost don't remember all the image that I came here 10 years ago. The surrounding area changes a lot. Maybe it's because of I plan for the visit this time.

    The street side is a choke point opens you to all the vendors hocking their wares, whether that be rides, food, or religion. Enter quickly to check out the tourist shops on the walk to the temple.

    正しくは風雷神門と言い、正面から見て右に風神、左に雷神が祀られています。 1866年の火災で焼失し、100年近くそのままになっていましたが、1960年現在のパナソニック•松下電器産業の創設者、松下幸之助氏が病気だった頃に浅草寺にお参りし、治ったためそのお礼として門、提灯を寄進し、雷門が完成しました。

    La puerta principal al templo Sensoji. Siempre está lleno de gente y puede ser un poco incómodo con las tiendas a su espalda.

    아사쿠라역 근처에 위치한 사찰인 센소지. 사찰사찰이지만 일본전통시장인 나까미세는 볼거리 군것질거리가 많다. 전병이나 양갱, 그리고 모찌들이 주된 군것질거리.
