Asakusa district where Sensoji Temple is based, was formed in Edo period (1600-1868) as the business and entertainment area. It is one of the districts in Tokyo, that still retained a certain atmosphere of the old Tokyo.
The main attraction of the district is the oldest Buddhist temple Sensoji, built in the 7th century.
In the central hall all the visitors are invited to purchase “written oracle”. Every visitor of Temple is purified by washing hands with holy water, and wafting the incense fumes over the bodies to bestow good health.
