  • Way over commercialized that detracts from the temple only a little. I wish there were more explanations in English (though there are many) so I could understand what I was looking at. But they're GORGEOUS buildings and there are some fun artifacts out to the left of the main building. I also wish we could enter the tall towers. Worth seeing.

  • Super touristy but a must stop for Tokyo. A great place for souvenirs. For 100 yen, shake the boxes and get a number for a fortune. Make sure you're rub the bronze monk statue for good luck. He is to the left when you head towards the shrine. For 200 yen, you can get scented sticks to burn for more good luck. Wash your hands and mouth before going into the shrine.

  • This is one of those places you should Wikipedia, at minimum, before coming to. There's so much history here that can get a bit lost in the touristic chaos and in the shopping (both of which are plentiful). Definitely put this on your list as a must-see temple for Tokyo, but be prepared for crowds. You can get some good souvenirs here, though, at a wide range of price points.

  • I've been here twice before, the second time they were doing work on the gate so they put up a cover with the gate screen printed on it so people can still get their photos. If you have the time, I recommend going later in the day after sunset. It's much calmer and less crowded and you can get better photos and spend more time looking at the gate, or course most of the shops will have closed, but visiting sensoji temple can be really relaxing too. I think there's also a second gate, but my memory of it's a bit fuzzy.

  • Tokyo’s oldest temple was dedicated to the Bodhisattva Kannon, the most compassionate Buddha, in 628. Dramatic nighttime illumination highlights vermilion and crimson detailing in the Five-Storied Pagoda. Continuing centuries-long tradition, stalls along the temple’s Nakamise Street sell food and goods to pilgrims, whose numbers swell around New Year’s.
