VPOTUS pool report 7 - Sensoji temple
Andrew Beatty • Agence France-Presse
April 18, 2017: 06:15 PM

At 17:38 the vice presidential motorcade departed the PM's official residence and headed to the Sensoji temple, which we reached about 15 minutes later.

The pool entered the vast edifice through enormous black lacquered doors, and preset in the main tatami floored central area.

There was a large golden-colored altar which featured multiple adornments. In front were two large lanterns, several flower arrangements and a bowl holding burning incense, which filled the room with a perfumed resin aroma.

Barefoot, the Pence family stood in front of the altar for a minute before moving on.

The pool is now holding in vans awaiting our journey to the hotel while the Vice President speaks to CNN.
