) which is a famous ancient Buddhist temple located in Asakusa, Tokyo, Japan. Popular among tourists, people visit Sensō-ji every year.
We will explore surrounding area and visit many traditional shops and eating places that feature traditional dishes (hand-made noodles, sushi, tempura, etc.). Nakamise-Dori, the street leading from the main gate to the temple itself, is lined with small shops selling souvenirs ranging from fans,
(woodblock prints), kimono and other robes, Buddhist scrolls, traditional sweets, to Godzilla toys, t-shirts and mobile phone straps. You can also walk inside the temple and participate in a short Japanese style prayer where people usually donate a 100yen coin.
