Shinshoji Temple, Tokyo

The Shinshoji temple is in Asakusa, so I couldn't leave Tokyo without a visit:

The temple gate.

Worshipers purify themselves in incense smoke before entering the temple.

Worshipers complete their devotions by clapping very loudly..

Shinshoji is surrounded by beautiful gardens, shrines and statuary.

But maintaining them can't be cheap. These new lanterns are sponsored by, and carry the logo of a credit card company.
