Sensoji Temple is the oldest and most visited Buddhist temple in Tokyo, dating back to 645 AD. The temple’s entrance is marked by the iconic Kaminarimon (Thunder Gate), which features a giant red lantern and two guardian statues. The temple is dedicated to Kannon, the goddess of mercy, who is said to have appeared in a statue fished out of the Sumida River by two brothers.
