The vibrancy and brilliance of the Asakusa, Sensoji temple is decorated in the most lovely way. Going to the Sensoji temple; it is good to know that it was made in year 645! Legends say, that two brothers found a statue of the Goddess Kannon (goddess of mercy) in a river and fished it out! The statue came back to the brothers each time, and they thought that area was connected to the goddess Kannon. Seven years later; Japanese created the Sensoji temple near that area where the brothers found the Kannon statue because they believed that it would be tied to the same energy that the goddess of mercy (Kannon) carried.
