Kaminarimon Gate


The Kaminarimon is the large entrance gate that ultimately leads to the Sensō-ji temple in Asakusa.

The gate, with its lantern and statues, is popular for tourists but even for Japanese. It stands 11.7 m tall, 11.4 m wide.

The first gate was built in 941, but the current gate dates from 1960.
