Walking towards Asakasu Temple, Tokyo, Japan (also known as Sensoji Temple). - Legend says that in the year 628, two brothers fished a statue of Kannon, the goddess of mercy, out of the Sumida River, and even though they put the statue back into the river, it always returned to them. Consequently, Sensoji was built nearby for the goddess of Kannon. The temple was completed in 645, making it Tokyo’s oldest temple. - This view of the temple is looking down the 200-meter-long shopping street known as Nakamise. Alongside typical Japanese souvenirs such as yukata and folding fans, you can find various traditional local snacks. - #beautifuljapan #lovejapan
