Location: Sensoji Temple (Asakusa)
On March 18th, 628, two fisherman brothers fished a Buddhist statue out of the Sumida River. This statue happened to be one of the Bodhisattva Kannon and was then used to found the great Sensoji Temple that we know and love today. Come and join the celebration of the founding of Sensoji Temple and enjoy the beautiful golden dragon dance! According to legend, the Kannon took the form of a golden dragon when she descended from heaven.
