Asakusa

For centuries, Asakusa has been a center of urban life for ordinary people in Tokyo. This lively quarter, which retains a feel of old Edo, is very popular with tourists. Pass through the Kaminarimon Gate and stroll down the Nakamise shopping street to the center of Asakusa, Sensoji Temple. This temple, familiarly known as the Asakusa Kannon, has been the center of people’s lives and religious faith for centuries. Asakusa is also the setting for many colorful events throughout the year, such as the Sanja Festival (the Asakusa Shrine’s annual festival in mid-May), which is one of the three major festivals from the Edo period, as well as the Houzukiichi (ground cherry market), the Asakusa Samba Carnival, and the Tokyo Jidai Matsuri Festival.
