Sensōji is the oldest temple in Tokyo, and more than 30 million tourists a year pass under the huge red lanterns hung at the Kaminari (Thunder) Gate, which have become a well-known icon. Nakamise, the lane leading up to the temple, is lined with tiny shops and always jammed with people, and the beautiful five-storied pagoda is also a popular attraction. Worshippers visit Sensoji to pray to the Asakusa Kannon deity, which is said to be enshrined here.
