The precincts of Senso-ji Temple are always crowded with worshippers. Senso-ji Temple is the oldest temple in Tokyo, and one of the main attractions of sightseeing in Tokyo. According to the legend, the temple was built in the first year of the Taika Era, which if true, means it was built about 1400 years ago. I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks this is a bit fishy. After all, it was before the Taika Reform.

As I stood in front of the main hall and watched the flow of worshippers, a young woman dressed in kimono came out. She seemed to be visiting the temple with her lover. The sun was strong, so she immediately put up a umbrella as soon as she came out. They were a picture perfect couple.

Wearing kimonos goes well with the historical shrines and temples. Many people seem to want to stroll the streets of Asakusa, a traditional shopping district, in kimono. In order to meet this need, there are several kimono rental stores in Asakusa.
