What to expect

Going on a trip to Tokyo without going to Senso-Ji Temple, would be a bit like visiting Paris without going to see the Eiffel Tower. Located in the heart of the Asakusa district, Sensô-Ji is the oldest temple Buddhist of Tokyo.

Erected in honor of the goddess Kannon (a bodhisattva of the compassion, very famous in Japan), you will be dazzled by the Senso-ji Temple and awed by its traditional beauty and the legendary stories.

Once there, you will cross the main arch "Nakamise-dôri" leading to the Temple, where you will find stands of traditional items. Then, you will go to the impressive portal of the sanctuary: the Kaminari-mon (thunder’s door), where the red largest lantern in Japan is suspended.

Located in the center of an extraordinary Buddhist complex, the Sensô-Ji is not the only magical spot of your visit. Your visit will take you to charming temples, the five-storeys pagoda, the Japanese garden and its artificial pond…

This place attracts every day thousands of visitors from all over the world wanting to discover Japan in its most beautiful and pure authenticity.
