Time Required: 3 Hours (7 AM-10 AM)Line: Oedo line from Higashi-shinjuku Station to Kuramae StationSensoji (浅草寺, Sensōji, also known as Asakusa Kannon Temple) is a Buddhist temple located in Asakusa. It is one of Tokyo's most colourful and popular temples. Nakamise is a long shopping street in front of Sensoji. Asakusa (浅草) is the centre of Tokyo's shitamachi (literally "low city"), one of Tokyo's districts, where an atmosphere of the Tokyo of past decades survives.
Sensoji- It is a Japanese shrine with a mystical aura. You have to drink water from the fountain before entering the shrine and there is also a fortune telling tree near it. The entire way to the shrine is filled with shops of food and clothing. Kimonos are sold there in bulk.
The main attraction in Asakusa is Sensoji Temple, Tokyo’s oldest and most famous temple. It’s open from 6.30am-5pm every day and is free to enter.
