Of all the reasons to visit Japan, the country’s magnificent temples and shrines are some of the most popular. Tokyo is a treasure trove of some of Japan’s most incredible temples, but none is more iconic than Sensō-ji. Explore the oldest temple in Tokyo on a virtual tour with a local guide who can tell you more about its significance.
Sensō-ji is home to almost a millennia-and-a-half of ancient Japanese history, and your guide will tell you legendary stories of its origins while taking you around the premises. But to understand the history of Sensō-ji, it’s necessary to see the surrounding village, Asakusa, a snapshot of old Tokyo that today is a hub of craft shops, souvenir stores, and izakaya.
Learn about Japan’s incredible history and explore one of its most renowned attractions without even leaving the comfort of your couch. Can you think of a better way to spend an afternoon?
