Sensoji Temple –  浅草寺

I visited quite a lot of Wonderful Temples in Kyoto (KiyomizuderaKinkakuji and Ginkakuji).  Sensoji is Tokyo most colourful, popular and oldest temple.  Many people called Sensoji as Thunder Gate (Kaminarimon) Temple.  It’s also commercialize temple.  A 200 meters long shopping street between the first gate and the second gate of the temple.  It was packed with people in the temple.
