Sensoji Temple

Sensoji Temple is an ancient Buddhist place of worship that is situated in the Asakusa district of Tokyo, Japan. The Sensoji Temple is known as one of the most significant temples in Japan, and it is also the oldest temple in Tokyo, having been constructed in the mid-seventh century. Sensoji Temple was originally built to house a statue of the Guan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy, that was allegedly discovered in a nearby river. Although much of the temple was destroyed during WWII, it was rebuilt and now acts as a symbol of rebirth to citizens of Tokyo.

  • Visit Tokyo in the late spring for the Sanja Matsuri, the largest Shinto Festival in the city, when the streets are closed off for colourful parades and celebrations.
  • Stroll down Nakamise-Dori, the small street that leads to the Sensoji Temple, and you can buy curios from the vendors that flank the street or eat delicious foods like handmade noodles from the food stalls.
  • Consult an oracle about your future at one of the omikuji stalls located within Sensoji Temple, which is an entertaining way to learn how your trip to Tokyo will turn out.

Tokyo has one of the best public transportation systems in the world, so it’s not hard to get to Sensoji Temple from just about anywhere in the city. The easiest way to get there is to take the Ginza Subway Line, Asakusa Subway Line or Tobu Railway and get off at the Asakusa Station which is quite close to Sensoji Temple. Those coming from Tokyo Station or Shinjuku Station should transfer to the Ginza Line at the Kanda Station. Once at Sensoji Temple, there are many interesting sights to see, so make sure to leave yourself time for exploration.
