The Senso-ji Temple is the oldest Buddhist temple in Tokyo, which is located in Asakusa, it is one of Tokyo’s most popular temples. The temple was built in the year 628-645 after two brothers fished the statue of the Goddess Kannon out of the river Sumida, as it was told in the legend. The first gate you will enter visiting the sacred area is the Kaminarimon (Thunder Gate). After this you walk through a small shopping street called Nakamise, where you can buy typical Japanese souvenirs and snacks. This street leads to the second gate Hozomon. After this you will enter the main hall of the temple on the left side you will see a five storied pagoda and of course the flowing water and the Koi for good fortune.
