Senso-ji Temple and Hozo-mon Gate
We missed the peak of cherry blossom season in Tokyo by a few weeks but many of the flowering bushes were in bloom, giving color all around the city. We visited the Sensoji temple, one of the most popular tourist destinations in Northern Tokyo. It is said to be the most sacred and spectacular temple in Tokyo. The temple survived the 1923 earthquake in Tokyo, but not the bombings of World War II. The main buildings have been rebuilt since.
