"Golden Dragon Dance" is a dance that is introduced to commemorate the Senso-ji Temple main hall rebuilt in 1958. This dance named from the “Gold Dragon Mountain” of the Senso-ji Temple.
It was designed following the legend that states the Bodhisattva Kannon, to which Senso-ji Temple is dedicated, manifested in the form of a golden dragon descending from the sky, creating overnight a grove of a thousand pines—a symbol of the worldly benefit of a rich harvest.

The sight of the 18-meter-long, 88-kilogram dazzling Golden Dragon Dancing to festive music is not to be missed.

Just so much to see of many things. What an incredible place. Such good energy! The staff was so nice and very helpful. Just an amazing temple. I would like to spend much more time here. Very glad to have visited. Area surrounding has so much to do!

Excellent place to visit. Small shops selling traditional Japanese crafts and food line the way to the temple. The temple itself is fantastic. Be sure to try the experience of picking your fortune while at the temple! (It’s written in English and Japanese fortunately). Recommended.

This was a large temple with many things to see. I recommend visiting this temple but just know that it gets busy very quickly. When I first went with friends I had a giant bowl of shaved ice and got to see a monkey show. There's also quite a few picturesque areas and many people dress in kimono.

After walking around the temple grounds you can visit a bunch of different small food stalls or shop around for souvenirs. I managed to find some beautiful and affordable tea cups in one of the smaller shops away from the main district.

Beautiful place with a spiritual feeling even with all of the heavy traffic, passing through. Well worth the visit for locals and foreigners, alike. There are quite a few souvenir and food options to suit the average guest. Just follow the instructions and be mindful of the environment. It's busy all day so don't expect much in the way of lulls in traffic. Be sure to collect good luck on your travels!

This is one of the most famous Buddhist temples in Tokyo. There is such a festive atmosphere here, with lots of people dressed in Kimonos celebrating. Beautiful temples and shops. Lots of food stalls line the outsides areas of the temple. There many souvenirs shops as well. Highly recommended.
