(This is a post looooong overdue.)
I’ve gone to the Sensoji Temple at Asakusa many times by now. This one particular time was made more interesting… because it’s the first time I’d discovered the temple’s very own properly manicured garden. It’s got lots of sakura trees, a stone bridge over a clear koi pond, a waterfall, stone lanterns, historical monuments and small shrines.
The small garden, located just on the left of the temple, is a relatively quiet area compared to the other areas within the compound of the Sensoji Temple (which is, most of the time, surrounded by a ridiculous amount of people, since it’s Tokyo’s major worshipping spot). I love!
