Senso-ji is perhaps the most famous Buddhist temple in Tokyo, located in the Asakusa district. It's one of the top tourist destinations for people visiting Tokyo and is always a madhouse throughout the day. I've been here numerous times before, but never at night. So this time, I really wanted to see what it looked like all lit up and without the mobs of people everywhere. My mom, my cousin, and her fiancé came with us, and all three of them, having been born and raised in Tokyo, said they had only been there during the day and were blown away by how beautiful the temple grounds were at night.
