Asakusa Kaminarimon, Taito Reviews
Beautiful shrine. Surrounding area is full of little open air shops which are a lot of fun to browse. Make sure you get your fortune. We googled it, you put some money in for a donation, then you take the silver box and shake it until a stick comes out. The stick has a number printed on it which you match up with the drawers. (You'll most likely need help if you're Canadians like us, so just look confused and someone will come along and help you out.) Once you find the drawer there will be a printed fortune in it. Be aware, your fortune is not necessarily going to be good, so if you're not happy with it, you're supposed to tie it to a rack that is there to negate it. The translations to English on the fortunes are almost as good as the fortunes themselves.
Asakusa is an impressive shrine in Tokyo. It is lovely during the day, has many vendors near it for shopping and allows one to get plenty of pictures with ladies in kimonos as well. Many people come to donate and pray for good fortune, we joined in with the throngs of people and enjoyed the respectfulness of the shrine. It was hard not to be caught up in how beautiful it was, but of course, we took plenty of pictures to bring home, and didn’t purchase many souvenirs -much to the chagrin of the many vendors. It is a very large, very beautiful shrine and should not be missed on any visit to Tokyo!
For wheelchair users: As you might expect of a 1350 year-old temple (well, rebuilt in the old style), there are stairs heading up to it. What you might not expect is that there is an elevator! I’m not sure when it was built, but it must be recent because I don’t remember it from before. They have done a remarkable job of blending it into the temple, so you may miss it. Looking at the temple face-on, it is the small structure stuck on the left hand side (there are handicap-mark signs leading to it too). Once you go up it, you can go up to see the relics and the box where people put in a coin and pray (though, it gets crowded).
One of the most beautiful Temples I have seen during my trip in Japan, with the recognizable giant lantern that can contain 5 or 6 people inside. Despite the very crowded day, the magnificent appearance and decorations on the temple were enough to touch the spirit and the respect of this amazing culture and religion. I will miss it!
Must go to place in Tokyo. The temple is very nice and filled with tourist all year round. Tons of little shops and establishments to eat. Also in the surrounding area there is so much to do. A must go. Skytree is also in close view.
