  • I surprisingly enjoyed this super touristy area! The food and shops are so touristy and I had so much fun!! So much to eat, so much to see. It's really fun to stand and eat with everyone because it's a little rude to walk around eating. I love touristy stuff in Tokyo! Locals and tourists are here, so it's NOT just tailored for foreigners! Come and have a good time!!
  • Souvenirs. Various type of foods. And many shopkeepers understand a little bit of English. This is not the market of main shopping but market to keep Japanese memorial with you as a gift
  • A must see if you like snacks and cheap souvenirs. I loved all the traditional sweets that were sold on the street. I couldn't taste all of them because there were so much! If you can live without a coffee for brekfast, then this is the place to go in the morning!
  • Even if there's a lot of tourists and it can get crowded, this is one of my favorite places for shopping for cultural items. There's everything from clothes (including kimonos) to food to souvenirs, as well as fairly hard-to-find things like old-style guns and swords for display. Off the street you'll find other kinds of stores that sell contemporary clothing, accessories, etc. One more thing to note. The prices here are much more competitive (meaning cheaper) than some other tourist spots like Takeshita Street in particular especially for things like souvenirs. I personally always tell my visiting friends and other tourists about visiting Nakamise Street and Asakusa in general for souvenirs instead of places like Harajuku and Shibuya in general.
  • Sightseeing while indulging with delicious delicacies. There's also this unique shop where they draw you comically. Also, try the local restaurants specializing in tempura.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
