Photos That Inspire – Senso-Ji Temple, Tokyo, Japan


A Rainy Day at the Senso-Ji Temple in the Asakusa District, Tokyo, Japan

For some unknown reason, I never visited the Senso-Ji Temple as a kid, during my many trips to Japan.  So, in 2009, on Ender's first trip to Japan, we decided that we would finally visit the Asakusa District in Tokyo.  It was our last day in Tokyo, and unfortunately, it turned out to be a rainy day.  We had thought about staying in the hotel instead and just take it easy.  But there was no way I was going to go through another trip to Japan without seeing Asakusa.  So we went...

The visit turned out to be really fun.  Ender loved walking around in her new umbrella.  The temple was freshly washed by the rain so all the colors seem to be more vivd, even through the mist & haze.  After the temple, we had a wonderful tempura lunch at a nearby restaurant.  Then to the airport we went.  Now I have visited the Senso-Ji Temple!
