Senso-ji Complex

Senso-ji Complex Review

Even for travelers with little interest in history or temples, this complex in the heart and soul of Asakusa is without a doubt one of Tokyo's must-see sights. Come for its local and historical importance, its garden, its 17th-century Shinto shrine, and the wild Sanja Matsuri–Tokyo's most famous festival–in May. The area also offers a myraid of interesting shops, winding back streets, and an atmosphere unlike anywhere else in Tokyo.
