Built in 628, this is the oldest temple in Tokyo. Famous for its big red lantern hanging from the Kaminari Gate, where the wind god and the thunder god are enshrined. Said to be the center of progress and cultural development of Edo, the temple still receives many visitors every year. The Nakamise-dori street, which connects Kaminari-mon Gate and Hozo-mon Gate, is always full with tourists, and offers a wide array of souvenirs and traditional Japanese snacks.
