Where to stay near Sensoji Temple

Exploring Sensoji Temple

The Asakusa Shrine, one of the most famous Shinto shrines in Japan, pays tribute to its three founding fathers: two fishermen brothers and a wealthy landlord. Legend has it that one day the brothers caught a Kannon statuette in their fishing net, and the landlord, who had heard about their find, converted them to the Buddhist religion via a passionate speech. All three subsequently devoted their life to Buddhism, and the Asakusa Shrine was erected as a place to worship the men as deities.
