Sensoji is the oldest temple in Tokyo. A beautiful place to check out! Beside the temple is a 5-story pagoda and a shrine. First walk through Nakamise-dori which is a shopping street with about 100 shops! Then walk through the Kaminarimon (The Thunder Gate) to the temple. Do you need to pray to the Buddhist Godess of Mercy?
