After travel at Hokkaido in New Year, I had a chance to travel to the capital city of Japan, Tokyo. I had took Vanilla air from Chitose airport and arrived Narita airport at Tokyo in the mornimg. Climate of Tokyo is very low but temperature not minus and no snow during the trip. I began traveling from Narita airport to accommodation in Shinjuku. The first place to visit was Sensoji Temple. The temple is the oldest temple for many people come to the temple to seek blessings of the Asakusa Kannon deity. It was the epicenter for the development of Edo culture. The front entrance has the huge lanterns hung at Kaminari(Thunder) as an important symbol.
