Senso-Ji Temple 浅草寺

 

Senso-Ji Temple is one of the must visit temples in Tokyo. It’s packed with tourists so I recommend to go early on a weekday. Aside from the beautiful temple and the Thunder Gate where everyone’s waiting to take a picture with, there are a TON of souvenir shops at the Nakamise Dori! There’s traditional Japanese sweets, t-shirts, chopsticks, magnets and the list goes on. I’ve heard the night view of Senso-Ji Temple is beautiful too but we haven’t had time to go back at night. So if you’re in the area, definitely check out the night view!
