Walking tour route in Asakusa
We walked around the famous spots near the historic Sensoji Temple at noon.
What is Asakusa, Tokyo Japan
Asakusa still retains the atmosphere of old Tokyo, with traditional handicrafts and food stalls along Nakamise Street near the historic Sensoji Temple in Japan.
The Hanayashiki amusement park, built in the mid-19th century, has thrilling ride attractions and cafes, and Sumida Park along the river hosts regular festivals and fireworks displays.
The neighborhood is dotted with casual izakaya (Japanese-style pubs) and yakitori restaurants serving grilled meat on skewers and beer.
I took a walking tour of the famous spots to get a feel for Asakusa.
I live in Tokyo, and I recommend these spots.
We are Asakusa Nakasei, established in 1898 in front of the Asakusa Public Hall. Please enjoy the unchanged taste of Edomae Tempura in our sukiya-style tatami room.
