Asakusa Sensoji the Grim

dsc_0092_1.jpg

One of Tokyo’s most significant temples, Asakusa Sensoji sits in the heart of Sensoji, Tokyo. Tokyo’s oldest Buddhist temple founded in 628AD, Asakusa Sensoji is a huge temple housing pagodas, gardens and the Nakamise-dori, a street leading to the temple that is filled with shops and restaurants for visitors to enjoy. Of the many captures I got in Asakusa Sensoji, this one stood out the most. Usually bathed in sunlight, I caught the temple shrouded in grey as a storm settled over Tokyo. While the temple grounds were alive and abuzz with thousands of visitors, the sky was altogether more solemn and enjoyable.
