One Day in Asakusa

We visited the most beautiful and popular temple in all of Tokyo and made some photos

If you don’t just want to chase the hottest fashion trends, the tastiest food options and the sweetest schoolgirls in Tokyo and like to think outside the box of Shibuya, Harajuku and Akihabara, then Asakusa is the place for you. Here there is namely the Sensō-ji, the oldest and most important Buddhist temple in the city.

For a long time, Asakusa was known as an entertainment district in which Kabuki and Rakugo theaters settled. After the Meiji restoration, the modern entertainment industry began to take root and western theaters and cinemas emerged. After the Second World War, however, Asakusa lost popularity as an entertainment district, as other districts such as Shinjuku increasingly outstripped it.

In addition to Sensō-ji, Asakusa is best known for the Nakamise shopping promenade and the annual Shinto festival Sanja Matsuri. There are also delicious traditional restaurants around the temple where you can grill and refine your own food, as well as numerous pachinko halls where you can challenge your luck.
