Asakusa is excellent with Kimono, Japanese traditional dress. Kimono looks beautiful at Senso-ji Temple and Edo-machi around it. In the season of New Year Days, Nakamise-dori is decorated with New Year ornaments, and we can enjoy happier atmosphere than usual.

The annual event held as a last fair of the year (in 2016, 3days on 12/17,18,19) at the site of Senso-ji Temple. People buy this gorgeous Oshie Hagoita for good health and fortune of the next year, and for talisman. Very crowded every year.

Senso-ji Temple becomes so quiet and wrapped in a nice atmosphere at night, that the excitement of the daytime at Nakamise is not true.

Since the first dedication in 1941, it's the eighth one. It expresses the power of Nio, the god in Hozomon Arch, and people say that the devil who sees the huge sandals fears and goes away...

Sensoji Temple is a poplar tourist spot crowded with many people in daytime. But at night, there's few people. Why don't you visit Asakusa at night to see the beautiful lighted Sensoji Temple?

Senso-ji Temple is a highlight of Asakusa sightseeing. Especially, illuminated pagoda and Hozo-mon produce a mysterious beauty that make us forget that we're in a big city.

The reflections on pools after the rain. Though you have seen the ordinary Senso-ji Temple in Asakusa, you can see the different scenery when it stops raining.

Sensoji Temple in Asakusa, Tokyo. There're always so many people around Kaminari Mon Gate and Nakamise Street. In addition, you can see amazingly beautiful scenery at night, the red world vividly appears.

Kaminari means thunder.
