Posted on at


 Sensoji Temple is in the Asakusa district of Tokyo. During the Edo period, this area was known for kabuki theaters and also it’s red light district!

At the entrance to the temple, Thunder Gate (Kaminarimon) at about 10 a.m. and even that early it was very crowded. The gate itself is made of vermillion lacquer and has a huge lantern , hanging in the middle over the walkway. The lantern was donated by the founder of Panasonic. The lantern itself is huge, 13 ft tall and weighing 1500 pounds as I've searched .

This place is so popular and one of the tourist spot in Tokyo.
