Senso-ji Senso-ji

Senso-ji

Tokyo's oldest and most visited Buddhist temple is the spectacular Senso-ji. It was originally part of the Tendai sect of Buddhism, but it became independent after World War II. According to legend, a statue of Kannon (the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy) was found in the river by local brothers fishing in 628; the temple was built to honor that goddess. The imposing Kaminari-mon (Thunder Gate) stands at the opening of the grounds. Fūjin (the god of wind) and Raijin (the god of thunder) protect the temple gate. On the outside is the temple's shopping street, Nakamise-dori, where many souvenirs can be found. The 55-m pagoda was reconstructed in 1973; it is five stories and lights up strikingly at night. Also in the complex is Asakusa-jinja, a shrine built in honor of the brothers who found the statue. Many worshippers come to the temple complex to burn incense and pay their respects.
