Highlights

Nakamise Street

Nakamise-dori is the street people walk on the approach to Senso-ji. Said to have been born in the 18th century as shop keepers were granted permission to sell their wares along the way to the temple. Today, the 250-meters contains around 90 shops and sells everything from souvenirs to snacks, meals and yukata.

Kaminarimon

Kaminarimon, literally Thunder Gate, is the outer of two large entrance gates that lead to Senso-ji. The gate houses a large red lantern with a wooden carving of a dragon on the underside as well as two large statues, Fujin (god of wind) on the right and Raijin (god of thunder) on the left.

Hozomon

Hozomon is the inner gate, Kaminarimon being the outer, and houses many of Senso-ji’s treasures. The first story houses two large statures of Nio, the guardian deities of the Buddha; there are also three lanterns and a pair of large sandals.

The Five-Storied Pagoda

The impressive five-story pagoda is easily visible as you walk along the path to Senso-ji and worth a visit—and especially worthy of some photographing. It is the second highest pagoda in Japan at 53 meters high and was built in 942 to hold Buddha’s ashes given as a goodwill to Japan from Sri Lanka.
