Sensoji Temple

Sensoji Temple

At the luxury hotel in Alicante Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa we don´t get tired of discovering all the treasures Asia has. Today we are travelling to Japan to know more about Sensoji. Are you joining us?

Sensoji, also known as Asakusa Kannon Temple, is a Buddhist temple located in the famous district of Asakusa in Tokyo. It is one of the main tourist attractions in the city due to its cultural interest and Buddhist worship.

It is the oldest temple in Tokyo. It was built in the year 645, in honour of Kannon, the goddess of mercy. According to the legend, in the year 628 two brothers found a statue of Kannon in the Sumida River, and even though they put the statue back into the river, it always returned to them. Consequently, they decided to keep it and built Sensoji for the goddess of Kannon.

In order to access the temple, we have to go through the Kaminarimon Gate or thunder gate, the outer door o Sensoji Temple and one of the most popular views in Japan. Sensoji is made up of the main hall, which was rebuilt after World War II, and a five-storied pagoda.
