Last Sunday on my way to the Blue Man Group Show, I made a small excursion to Asakusa to visit a place I haven’t been to is quite some time. It’s the ever-famous, ever-ancient Senjsoji in Asakusa, Japan. Honestly I don’t know all of the history behind Sensoji except that it’s the oldest temple in Tokyo, and that it was made by. What I do know is that it is a breathtaking sightseeing spot. It can get a little humid during the summer, and by a little I mean A LOT! But if you can stomach the humidity, you’ll have a chance to see one of Japan’s most famous landmarks. Here are some pictures from my visit to Sensoji:
I also came across some photos of mine from back in 2008, not much is different except that the weather was better back on that sunny day in 2008.
When I learn more about the history behind the temple, I’ll definitely do another post. I don’t want to just do the Wikipedia thing and post it if that makes any sense. Thanks for reading and looking everybody. I’ll catch you next time.
