At the Asakusa Shrine, the Sanja Matsuri Festival is held, one of the city's three largest annual festivals and the most colorful and spectacular events of Tokyo.
The Asakusa Temple is decorated in gongen-zukuri style. There is also a sacred Shinto Shrine, dedicated to the three men who built the nearby Buddhist temple, the Sensō-ji Buddhist temple. The temple can be seen on the eastern side of the Sensō-ji Temple, on a street marked by a large gate. The gate at the entrance to the temple is called "Torii" in Japanese. It is a traditional Japanese stone gate, which can be found at the entrance to many Shinto Shrines.
The opening hours are identical to the Sensō-ji Temple - Monday to Sunday, from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm.
