Asakusa is known as one of the leading sightseeing spots which gathers tourists from all over world through the year. There are a lot of places to see such as traditional shrines and temples, a shopping district which has a lot of stores to buy take-out food, and stores which have products made by great craftsman. I went to walk around Asakusa with Emma Tanioku which is the town fuses together nostalgic atmosphere and newest culture..


Starting trip from Kaminari-mon Gate which is the symbol of Asakusa.


We started strolling from Kaminari-mon Gate! The Kaminari-mon Gate that has big red lantern as a landmark is considered to be the symbol of Asakusa, and great photo spot for tourists. If you visit Asakusa, you should take picture in front of Kaminari-mon gate as the first thing to do.


Cheerful Nakamise Street


Nakamise street is the almost 250-meter-long shopping street that connects Kaminari-mon Gate to Sensoji Temple. There are about 90 stores that deal with souvenirs, traditional crafts, and food. One of the oldest and historical shopping districts is really fun just walking around.

Chopstick is the stuff that represents Japanese culture. There also has cute chopstick rest. They are tiny and easy to carry around so that is great for souvenirs.
