Sensoji Temple

I visited the Sensoji Temple along with some surrounding buildings, worship areas, and a marketplace while in Japan. The Bhuddist temple itself is nearly 1400 years old (built in 628 AD) and is Tokyo’s oldest. Looking at it, however, it obviously has constant upkeep done to it and I wonder if any of it is actually original any more. Still, it was impressive and exciting to get a look at such a landmark and to see some people praying in the temple.

The ceiling of the temple grabbed my attention: it’s made up of five different tiles.

The Nakamise market is on the street leading to the temple and had a lot of varied and interesting vendors.
