Sensoji Temple Tour

The visit begins at the tourist information office at Tokio: 2-18-9 Kaminarimon, where we'll meet our guide. From here, the very heart of the Asakusa district, we'll make our way to the Sensoji temple: the oldest Buddhist temple in Tokyo. Built in honour of the god Kannon, since its construction in 628 it's been known as a place filled with mysteries.

During the visit, we'll cross the main entrance arch, known as the “Nakamise-dôri” and see any number of traditional items, all the while with a guide explaining their relevance and role in the day to day life of this most important of temples. And you will, of course, see the  Kaminari-mon or 'Thunder' gate, from which an enormous paper lantern is suspended, dramatically painted in reds and blacks to represent lightning and thunderclouds: the largest paper lamp in Tokyo.

As wel as seeing the interior of Sensoji, you'll have the opportunity to see the imposing five floored pagoda and the Japanese garden, with its beautiful artificial lake: a truly unmissable visit for any tourist in Tokyo!
