Senso-ji Temple

Address : 2-3-1 Asakusa, Taito-ku, Tokyo

Senso-ji Temple with the Thunder Gate and Nakamise (shopping street) is popular amongst tourists from home and abroad. The origin of the temple is told that Bosatsu (Bodhisattva, a saint) caught in a fishing net in nearby Sumida-gawa River was enshrined here. The temple especially prospered during the Tokugawa Period (17th to 19th century). Buildings except the Nitenmon Gate were burnt down by air raids during World War II, and were rebuilt after the war.This area is recommended for tourists on wheelchairs too, as there are only a few slopes in this neighborhood.
