The Sensō-ji (or Asakusa-dera) is the biggest and most important Buddhist temple in Tōkyō, Japan. It’s history goes back to the year 628 when fishermen found a statue in their nets. From 645 on a temple was built at this place that has later been extended.

It is located in the city quarter of Asakusa and the entrance is the Hōzō-mon gate. There you can clean your mouth with water and purify yourself with smoke. Directly behind you can find the main hall and a five-storied pagoda. Next to it you can find a Shintō shrine: Asakusa-jinja.
