  • After Kaminarimon Gate, go through Nakamise Street. And then, you arrive to Hozomon Gate. It is maybe less impressive than Kaminarimon, but it is a nice spot to take a picture. 
  • 初次來到東京不跟雷門拍照說不過去吧?不過這個點也就是拍拍照而已,且遊客超多,無法奢望能拍到好角度或是排除路人甲乙丙丁。 
  • The Hozomon Gate is at the entrance to the Asakusa Temple and Asakusa Shrine and a good example of old Tokyo from the Edo era. There is a lot to see in the area including the statue of the God of Wind...  more »

  • 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.
