Located in Akasuka in the center of Tokyo’s old town area is the Sensoji Temple. This very popular ancient Buddhist temple is Tokyo’s oldest temple and one of the most significant. The temple was completed in the year 645.
Two main gates lead to the Sensoji temple , the first is the Thunder Gate – and imposing Buddhist structure featuring a massive paper lantern dramatically painted in vivid red and black. A shopping area of about 200 mtrs leads from the outer gate to the temple’s 2nd gate – the ‘Hozomon Gate’ which is featured above
This is Tokyo’s famous upmarket district. The time to be in Ginza is night when it gets brightly lit up and there is action all around. It has numerous department stores, all major fashion brands and great dining options and nightclubs.
