Another must-see in Tokyo is its oldest temple, the Senso-ji. While the Meiji shrine is a Shinto shrine, the Senso-ji is a Buddhist temple, so you’ll find the two very different in style and symbology. We were lucky to arrive at dusk, so as you can see, the light was beautiful! The street on the approach to the temple, Nakamise-dori, is also not to be missed. It is lined with shops selling various Japanese-style goods, souvenirs, Tokyo confectioneries, and classic Japanese snacks, and has such a festive atmosphere! A personal recommendation: stop by the stall that sells peanut-covered dango and give them a try!
