Beautiful temple and pagoda, it closed at 5 and we were the last ones in! Very pretty and interesting. Market leading to the temple was full of souvenirs and was cheap.

Check out the back alley lane, the small shops is more interesting. There is also a few good restaurants around the shrine.

This place is situated in heart of Tokyo city. Most of the tour operators shall visit this place for sure. There are some good luck charms available which could be bought by tourists. Time should be spent in appreciating the various aspects of the place.

Beautiful Area in the massive and busy Tokyo .. you could simply go there, visit Sensōji temple, buy amazing stuff from the bazaar in front and then walk for 20 minutes to reach the Sky Tree (long queues but worth the wait )
