Day 13** Apr 29 | Tokyo – Honolulu
After Breakfast, we will go to Senso-ji (,Kinryū-zan Sensō-ji), an ancient Buddhist temple located in Asakusa, Taito, Tokyo. It is Tokyo’s oldest and one of its most significant temples. The temple is dedicated to the bodhisattva Kannon (Avalokitesvara). Dominating the entrance to the temple is the Kaminarimon or “Thunder Gate”. This imposing Buddhist structure features a massive paper lantern dramatically painted in vivid red-and-black tones to suggest thunderclouds and lightning. Beyond the Kaminarimon is Nakamise-dori with its shops, followed by the Hōzōmon or “Treasure House Gate” which provides the entrance to the inner complex. Within the precincts stand A Stately Five-story Pagoda and the Main Hall, devoted to Kannon Bosatsu. Catering to the visiting crowds, the surrounding area has many traditional shops and eating places that feature traditional dishes (hand-made noodles, sushi, tempura, etc.). These shops themselves are part of a living tradition of selling things to pilgrims who walked to Senso-ji. After that, we will transfer to Odaiba and visit the 19-meter tall Gundam RX 0 Statue, one of the most significant comic attractions in Japanese cartoon (manga) industry. Today Odaiba is a popular shopping and sightseeing destination for local residents and tourists alike. Enjoy our last minute shopping time here before transferring to Narita or Haneda International Airport for our return flight to Honolulu, taking with us the lasting memories of this wonderful Spring Flower Japan Cruise.
We wish you a safe journey and many wonderful memories to share with family and friends!
