The Sensoji Temple is a great place to enjoy the "Edo Style" in Japan. The oldest temple in the country, Sensoji is surrounded by plenty of famous buildings and historical styles.  According to a legend, in the thirty-sixth year of the Ancient Emperor (AD 628), two fishermen found a golden statue that was 5.5 cm high and picked it up and created the shrine. The temple has seen plenty of fires and has been replenished over time. Tokugawa Ieyasu rebuilt the Asakusa-ji Temple and made a large group of monasteries that became a meditating spot for many Edo citizens. Pilgrims arrive every year around New Year's Day and understand Japanese culture and history.
