  • Because there are many food shops including bun, bun, bread, which shop sells from one from one I eat in a festive mood feelings you want to walk, is strictly prohibited. "Eating out does not do" include a broadcast has been. As has become a rule when I bought one, a bun, bun and eat in the shop, or in the eaves. Extends in front of the other shops, such as to eat among shops to use that is.

  • 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.
