  • Souvenir and food shops are stingy and lined on both sides of the road are very fun but always crowded. It is like a plow through the crowd if you want to go and shop. To hit so many people eating ice cream, and soiled clothes and walked.

  • Even when crowded. I love deep fried bun here. Especially in the opposite corner of the Japanese boat shop is great. Plain other than green tea, Sesame, etc. Fried is the best.

  • 早上旅客跟遊客非常多,但也很好買跟好逛 值得再去。 到淺草觀音寺一定要記得抽籤運很靈 建議早上能早點到大約10點開始跟團旅客與日本旅客都進入會非常擠

  • 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.
