Inspired by Hiroshige Utagawa - "Asakusa Kinryuzan" This work depicts the present-day Sensoji Temple in the same composition as Hiroshige's "Asakusa Kinryuzan (The Kinryuzan Temple at Asakusa)", No.99 from "One Hundred Famous Views of Edo". In "Asakusa Kinryuzan" at that time, a wooden five-story pagoda was depicted on the right behind the gate, but it was later burned down many times and collapsed, and has now been relocated to the left in a concrete structure. The Nakamise (shopping street) leading from the Kaminarimon (Thunder Gate) in the foreground to the back of the picture is now one of the oldest shopping streets in Japan. 広重の「名所江戸百景」第九十九景である『浅草金龍山(きんりゅうざん)』と同じ構図で現代の浅草寺を描いた作品です。 当時の「浅草金龍山」には、門の奥右側に木製の五重塔が描かれていますが、その後何度も焼けて倒壊、現在はコンクリート造りになり左側に移設されました。雷門から奥へ続く仲見世は、現在日本で最も古い商店街の一つです。
