Visit Report of Sensoji Temple

Senso-ji Temple, one of Asakusa's most popular tourist attractions, has a history stretching back over 1,400 years.

To enhance the image of Asakusa as an international city, the temple has been lit up every day since 2003, offering a fantastic sight.

As the shops along Nakamise-dori close between 6:30 pm and 7:00 pm, it is a good time to enjoy the night view in a relatively quiet atmosphere.

The "Asakusa Picture Scroll" painted on the shutters of Nakamise-dori is also a highlight.

If you are visiting Tokyo Sky Tree or Asakusa for sightseeing, why not take a walk around the area at night?
