Senso-ji

By Weekender Editor

Built in 645 and dedicated to the Buddhist goddess Kannon, this temple is Tokyo’s oldest and is an absolute must-see for visitors to the world’s largest city. In addition to the impressive grounds and the iconic five-story pagoda, the Kaminarimon entrance and shop-lined walkways to the temple are all part of the Senso-ji experience. Make sure to have a stroll around the arcades that surround the temple, too.
