Sensoji Temple, Tokyo Reviews

  • One of best temple in Japan. I visited this place in 2007. Its always crowded but cool atmosphere. If you want pictures of a lot of tourists in your pictures of this magnificent structure and surrounding area. Better to visit early morning. This is one of tourist destination in Japan you must visit. Also you can shopping on these area and get souvenirs. Visit the incense for good fortune. 100 yen for a good luck charm. I will visit again to this temple with my child.

  • Biggest tourist attraction in Japan but still well worth it Even browsing all the stores and their tourist souvenirs. Great place for snacks and street food and then to wander the area. And also nice to come at night when everything closed and lit up.

  • Very huge and nice temple, overall a great experience. It is however very crowded, and I found it hard to find a good spot for a good photo. The area is surrounded by souvenirs and sweet shop, very cheerful and fun atmosphere. Staff only accept cash and do not speak English so be mentally prepared :) a must-visit for first time Tokyo visitors.

  • Beautiful place to visit. A lot of information is available for English speaking tourists. There is a ton of shopping for gifts and a wide variety of food choices. Definitely worth the visit. Just be cautious, there are a lot of tourists. It might be best to go first thing in the morning.

  • Crowded and touristy. The buildings are beautiful and the grounds are well-maintained; it's impressive to see. Has more of a carnival vibe than contemplative. There is tons of shopping and refreshments nearby, which is convenient but didn't do much for me in terms of ambience. It's one way to see a temple, but it could really be anything with this amount of hype.
