What to Expect

Asakusa was a place of pleasure for the theatres since the Edo period (1603-1867)." Senso-ji "is a Buddhist temple that is the oldest temple in Tokyo whose constraction dates back to 628." Kaminari-mon "means the gate of the thunder and the main gate of " Senso-ji ". In the middle of the gate, a huge red paper lantern is hung. In the lantern, characters are written in Japanese, "Kaminari-mon"." Nakamise-dori "is the approach to the temple. It's a long street lined with 90 shops, with a lot of Japanese sweets and souvenirs. There is also "Asakusa-jinjya" which means a Shinto shrine of Asakusa next to "Senso-ji".It is quite typical in the great Buddhist temple where the main gate, the approach to a temple and the Buddhist temple form a line, sometimes with the Shinto shrine.

Kappa-bashi is the town specialized in wholesale cooking utensils. There are diverse shops on a large street. As the area is primarily reserved for professionals, for example, kitchen knife shop offers a wide variety of knives. However, you can buy what you want, of course, and even samples of resin food. This town is very rare in Japan and I have never seen it.
