The Sensoji Temple 浅草寺 (also known as the Asakusa Kannon Temple) is a Buddhist Temple. Before World War 2 is was associated with the Buddhism "Tendai" Sect but after the war, it became independent.  It is Tokyo's oldest temple, founded in 645, and one of the most significant Buddhist Temple's in Japan. Tokugawa Ieyasu designated Sensoji as the "Tutelary Temple" of the Tokugawa Clan. The current temple is a reconstruction as the original was destroyed during World War 2. The reconstructed temple was rebuilt as a "Symbol of Rebirth and Peace" to the Japanese people.

The temple is reached usually by the first entry gate Kaminarimon (Thunder Gate). Then there is a long shopping street that sells Japanese souvenirs called "Naka Mise", a 2nd gate called Hozomon and then the temple.

Sensoji Temple holds the Sanja Festival in May, a Samba Carnival in Augest and the Hagoita Market.
