No. 7 (tie) Sensoji Temple, Tokyo

Annual Visitors: 30,000,000

Tokyo’s oldest temple was dedicated to the Bodhisattva Kannon, the most compassionate Buddha, in 628. Dramatic nighttime illumination highlights vermilion and crimson detailing in the Five-Storied Pagoda. Continuing centuries-long tradition, stalls along the temple’s Nakamise Street sell food and goods to pilgrims, whose numbers swell around New Year’s.
