Supposedly the second tallest pagoda in Japan and very picturesque to photograph. Conveniently located in Asakusa ( the area) where you can visit Nakamise shopping street and Sensoji ( also called Kannon Temple)

Very crowded with an avenue of shops leading up to the shrine. You can go at night as open 24 hours. Beautiful lighting at night, no junks shops as they are all closed.

Definitely put this on your Tokyo to-do list. In the evening the Senso-ji temple looks so impressive lit up, and the views to ultra modern Tokyo skytree make a great contrast. Very characterful shopping area, worth visiting if only for a short stop. Recommend!

grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
