"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.

This is one of the iconic place to visit in Tokyo, Japan. Very blissful and calm. Generally very crowded in weekends as many tourists as well as the locals are visiting the place. The shopping options are there as some affordable pricing available, also souvenir are not much expensive. The architecture is too good. visiting it in evening when the different lighting are applied it looks beautiful.

This is the must-visit temple in Tokyo. It's very unique and iconic. It's always crowded with people but the atmosphere is still good. There are many inexpensive souvenir shops and tasty food around the temple. Amulets of this temple are also great. You can buy them as souvenirs for who you love.

It’s worth mixing in the crowd for a visit here. A wonderful variety of shopping and restaurants intertwined with some spiritually significant locations.

Expect the typical tourist crowds who have no clue what cultural respect is. But once you move past those, you can be immersed into a wonderful part of Japanese history and culture.

Go early or during golden hour and you might be treated to a Japanese wedding party taking photos in traditional attire.

Easy to access via public transit.

A lovely elaborate temple, free to go and walk around, if you wish you can go and pray at the opening of the temple. Donating ¥100 to get your fortune was a good bit of fun while at the temple. A lot of shops surround the temple but these close at 9pm. I went at night and found this out the hard way but was worth it going at night. The lighting design is very nice and really brings out the temple! A must see in tokyo!

Loved this place. It's so much more than a temple. We had so much fun exploring all of the boutique stores around the area and the temple itself is also very beautiful. I can see why it's so popular and the popularity is well deserved.
