  • It is an impressive gate the bigger of the two in Asakusa. It is the entrance to the Sensoji Temple and the Asakusa Shrine behind. If in Asakusa it is a must see but it is usually crowded. 
  • It is a large gate located so far from the Thunder Gates came down the street. From the front is just the second gate, or big on the back. It was quite powerful.

  • A front door entrance to the sensoji temple with large red lanterns hanging where tourists take pictures together. If you walk to the gate, Nakamise Shopping Street, will come across like shopping, went long. This district is very Jolly and fun nayan backpacks.

  • One of the first things you spot when walking up to the Asakusa shrine is this big and beautiful gate. You won't be the only one admiring this spectacular gate because there will be loads of others around you with their cameras pointing the same way, which I did myself.
  • Although the first gate, Kaminarimon gets lots of attention, Hōzōmon (the inner entrance gate) still gets a lot of views from tourists heading to Sensō-ji temple. It's so amazing to see the structure!
  • A great entrance heading to the Sensō-ji Temple and an impressive structure.
  • Something typical for Japan. Nice architecture. Lots of street merchants.
  • Amazing gate and shrine with lots of small shops.
