Sensō-ji (1)

According to Wikipedia, Sensō-ji (金龍山浅草寺) is the world's most visited religious site.
Over 30 million people visit this Buddhist temple each year.
The first temple here was founded in 645 AD.
It was destroyed in World War II, but rebuilt.
The Thunder Gate is at the entrance to the temple.
The lantern is very famous.
This is one of Tokyo's most impressive sights, and no visit to Tokyo is complete without seeing it.


  1. I wonder if that number of visitors makes it difficult for the people who want to worship there.

  2. So many people! Incredible how we are drawn to the past and its iconic spaces.

  3. What gorgeous scenery with the bright colors!
