Hatsumode  ~ Asakusa ~

(visiting shrines or temples in New Year)



senso-ji.

In Japan, people visit shrines or temples wishing for the happiness, peace, security and prosperity of the year as a custom of New Year. We call this gHatsumodeh.

Let us introduce you Sensoji Temple at Asakusa which is one of the oldest temples in Tokyo. The principal object of worship is gKannon Bosatsuh or the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy. According to the legend, two fishermen found this image in their fishing net in seventh century.

There is a walkway called gNakamiseh where you can enjoy visiting a lot of shops selling foreignersf favorite souvenirs on both sides. You may meet traditional Japanese hairdo. Asakusa@is the favorite spot for many foreign people. The famous Kaminari Mon, the Gate of the God of Thunder will welcome you with a huge red lantern staying over you.

You will find the temple easily from Asakusa Station of Subway Ginza Line, Subway Asakusa Line and Tobu Line.
