Asakusa 浅草寺

台東区浅草 2-3-1
2-3-1 Asakusa, Taito-ku

The Temple grounds are always open whereas the Main Hall is open daily from 6:30am to 5pm

The area of Asakusa Kannon has kept a bit of the old Japanese spirit that has been lost with the urbanization of Tokyo. The temple of Senso-ji, with its red gates, the bustling Nakamize-dori street full of craft shops and the visitors from all over the world, but mainly from Japan, give the place a very nice feel. This is the perfect place for that “I have been to Tokyo” picture. After you say your prayer at the temple, you can explore the area, filled with traditional shops and restaurants. Nearby is the incredibly tall Tokyo SkyTree.
