The Hozomon Gate (above) is located at the end of Nakamise shopping street at the Asakusa Sensoji Temple.
Kaminarimon (Kaminari Gate) is the first of two large entrance gates leading to Sensoji Temple. Built more than 1000 years ago, it is the symbol of Asakusa. The Nakamise shopping street leads from Kaminarimon to the temple grounds.
The Tokyo Skytree is only a twenty minute walk across the Sumida River from Asakusa. As you cross the bridge there is a very weird golden sculpture which I have absolutely no idea what it represents!
