When: 08/04/15: 10:30 am - 3:00 pm
Where: Senso-ji, 2-3-1 Asakusa
Asakusa’s Senso-ji temple hosts this annual celebration of the Buddha’s birthday. During festivities little golden structures are decorated with flowers and the Buddha figure contained within is dowsed in sweet tea by worshippers and guests. The highlight of the day has to be the giant white elephant pulled along the approach to the temple by local kindergarten children: it’s one of the most kawaii sights you’re likely to see this year.
