  • 這兒離淺草地鐵站,粉近大約三分鐘路程就到,這個雷門大標,絕對是每個人到淺草,必要拍照之處,超顯眼的,來這兒和以與朋友一起拍,萬一 你的錢包或護照不見了,這邊有也警察先生可以協助。 
  • It is very crowded, it is the way that leads to the Senso-Ji Temple and is surrounded by stalls with souvenirs and food. Reasonable prices, the only flaw is rivers of people that make difficult the walk.

  • I feel every city has one of these, and nowadays it's more for tourists but that doesn't make it any less fun. It's a good place to buy some souvenirs and enjoy some street snacks.
  • If you are planning to bring tons of souvenirs from Tokyo for friends and family this is one of the places you want to visit (you gonna go to Senso-ji anyway,so...). Daruma-San, T-shirts, fake sushi key-chains, chopsticks deluxe, koinobori, sensu...you name it. You will also find some food stalls to eat some Taiyaki, ice cream and other sweets.
  • Part of the larger Asakusa Shrine , this place got loads of smaller shops and restaurants well worth your time and money if you want to escape the more touristy place of Asakusa.
  • The main entrance of the Senso-ji temple. Along this street you'll find lots of local street food and omiyage (souvenirs). Worth the visit.
  • It's a huge tourist spot, but still a fun place to go in Tokyo. The walkway is filled with shops selling traditional Japanese style things, and there are a lot of interesting sights and sounds.
