Asakusa is one of the most popular sightseeing areas in Tokyo. Despite huge damages after bombing during World War II, the area was rebuilt and historical shitamachi (downtown area) of Asakusa became one of the most visited tourist spots in Tokyo.

Welcome dear travel fans! I've been traveling around the world for 20 years and most of my trips were to Asia. I think I have been crazy about Japan since I was a child and will be happy to share this passion with you.

Additional information

Asakusa is one of the most popular sightseeing areas in Tokyo. Despite huge damages after bombing during World War II, the area was rebuilt and historical shitamachi (downtown area) of Asakusa became one of the most visited tourist spots in Tokyo. 

Sensoji Temple is a temple of Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva and is one of the most famous temples in Japan, also the oldest one in Tokyo. It attracts about 30 million visitors every year. The Temple has about 1,300 year-long history and is also famous for its entrance gate called Kaminari-mon which stands out through its large red lantern. However, Sensoji temple is not the only reason why you should visit Asakusa. The oldest shopping street in Japan, called Nakamise Dori, is located beyond Kaminari-mon gates and leads to the temple’s main hall. On Nakamise Dori you can buy traditional Japanese craft items as well as delicious street food such as fried mochi (rice cakes). The length of the street is about 250 meters and contains around 89 shops.

I would also recommend taking a rickshaw ride around Asakusa to explore the area in such an unusual way.
