After breakfast we headed for a little walk to visit the Sensō-ji Buddhist Temple. It’s not just any temple… It is old (the original was constructed in the 600s and is the most widely visited spiritual site in the world with over 30 million visitors annually.
It was about a 25min subway ride for us to the opposite side of town. When we stepped out of the station and up the stairs to the road it was crazy busy with people. To get to the temple you walked down streets filled with many little shops selling souvenirs.
There was people dressed in traditional Japanese outfits walking around.
In the temple there is a section that you can pray and get your fortune. We gave it a try!
As we left there were a few food vendors selling things from corn to soup to treats. But the best smelling one was the BBQ meat one. AND LOOK WHAT THEY HAD!!!
Now in Shangahi, Kaelyn wasn’t really a fan, see below what she says now. I will say though, these were LARGE pieces of tongue – chewier and you could see the top of the tongue. It was still good but not as tender as the ones in Shanghai.
