Sensou- Ji Temple

Today we visited the Sensou- ji temple, the place I was assigned. Around 628 AD two fishermen caught a tiny golden statue of Kannon the Buddhist god of Mercy. Today the temple is dedicated to the Buddhist goddess of Mercy. It is Tokyo’s oldest and most popular temple. Although it was ruined during Word War II, it was rebuilt as a sign of rebirth for Tokyo. It also hosts one of Tokyo’s largest festivals in late spring.
