FYeahJapan: Sensoji & The Tokyo Skytree

Sensoji Asakusa

Sensoji is one of Tokyo's most popular attractions with hundreds of people visiting every day and the day we visited was no exception. We had visited quite a few temples by this point on our travels but Sensoji was our first temple visit in Tokyo and although I heard it was a popular sight I wasn't expecting quite so many visitors especially so late in the day when we arrived.

Visiting the temple just as the sun was setting made it all the more beautiful I loved the vibrant red colours and the smell of incense is made me feel somewhat calm in the middle of all the hustle and bustle and despite the many visitors to the temple there were still places you could find to just sit and relax away from the crowds.

From Sensoji you can enjoy a view of the Tokyo Skytree in fact it's so big you can often spot it from different places around Tokyo, I didn't realise quite how so big it was until I was right there underneath it, it's twice the size of Tokyo Tower and even more awesome to celebrate the recent release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens the Skytree it was lit up like a giant lightsaber, pretty damn cool!

How did your town celebrate the release of Star Wars?
