Japan sightseeing (4)

9 June 15: Asakusa Kannon Temple
Asakusa Kannon Temple (also called Sensoji) is the oldest temple in Tokyo. Its history goes back to 7th century. The legend says that in 628 two local fishermen caught a tiny statue in their net while fishing in the nearby Sumida river. The head of their village recognized it as the image of Kannon, Goddess of mercy. So they built a temple to enshrine and worship the Kannon statue.

 Imperial Palace Garden
Love its bonsai tree

10 June 15: Disneyland
Tokyo Disneyland is a theme park based on the films produced by Walt Disney. It was opened in 1983 as the first Disney theme park outside of the United States. Modeled after Disneyland in California and the Magic Kingdom in Florida, Tokyo Disneyland is made up of seven themed lands and features seasonal decorations and parades.


  1. Wish to visit Japan Disneyland some day. I also like looking at bonsai.

  2. I didn't go to Disneyland and the Imperial Palace Garden.. I googled about it and this website says:-

    The Imperial Palace East Gardens (皇居東御苑, Kōkyo Higashi Gyoen) are a part of the inner palace area and are open to the public. They are the former site of Edo Castle's innermost circles of defense, the honmaru ("main circle") and ninomaru ("secondary circle"). None of the main buildings remain today, but the moats, walls, entrance gates and several guardhouses still exist.

  3. I have been to Asakusa and Imperial Palace Garden but not DisneyLand Tokyo. Nice places to visit.

  4. I always loves those Mascot in DisneyLand...
