Hozomon is the entrance gate closest to Sensō-ji temple, and situated at the end of Nakamise Street. Inside the gate are three huge lanterns and two statues. This is one very popular photo-op.

When I think of Tokyo this historic gate is the first picture that comes to mind. We went in the middle of the afternoon and it was sweltering hot. The crowds were relentless so don’t bank on a perfect picture without swarms of people. There’s...More

It is not only a temple, but a garden (on the right side), a historic bell which told the time (when folks heard it, they passed it on) and other places plus a market as you walked in. There are many dressed in kimono but...More

This is a large entrance gate to the Senso-ji Temple. Be prepared that there will be a lot of people around. Visit early morning or late afternoon with a good camera! ;-)

If you want to visit Sensjo you will probably pass the Hozomon which is great - big, beautiful and making huge impression

This is one of the structures (gate) within the Asakusa area. They are all together in one area. The Hozomon gate, the temple and shopping streets.

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
