Japanese couple praying at Sensō-ji Temple, Asakusa
Sensoji is a Buddhist temple located in Asakusa. It is one of Tokyo's most colourful and popular temples.
The legend says that in the year 628, two brothers fished a statue of Kannon, the goddess of mercy, out of the Sumida River, and even though they put the statue back into the river, it always returned to them. Consequently, Sensoji was built nearby for the goddess of Kannon. The temple was completed in 645, making it Tokyo's oldest temple.
