>Asakusa Nakamise Shopping Street

Posted on: April 4, 2011

>This is the first attraction we visited when we reach Tokyo within few hours.

Due to the room had not ready yet for us to check in, therefore we plan to shop as our itinerary for the remaining days will be very tight.

Asakusa Nakamise is a lively shopping street lined up with small shops selling enormous selection of traditional local snacks such as rice biscuits, instance red bean cakes, edible seaweed and a huge array of sourvenirs including kimono, T-shirts, keychain, cell-phone straps, fans, toys and etc. During our way to there, we were almost lost. But thanks to the courtesy of Japanese, we finally made it.

Approach to the shopping street, there is a Sensoji Temple. It is also known as Asakusa Kannon which is the oldest temple in Tokyo.

Nicole and I just took few pics. We were more interested with shopping.

Sensoji Temple is a few steps from Asakusa Station, served by the Ginza Subway Line, Asakusa Subway Line and Tobu Railways.
