-The air of old good Tokyo-
Asakusa is the center of Tokyo's downtown, one of Tokyo's districts, where an atmosphere of the old Tokyo survives. You can try traditional and unique Japanese street food as well!!
Asakusa's main attraction is Sensoji, a very popular Buddhist temple, built in the 7th century. The temple is approached via the Nakamise street, a shopping street that has been providing temple visitors with a variety of traditional, local snacks and souvenirs for centuries.
