  • Covered shopping street - totally weatherproof. We were there in winter so it provided for a great respite from the windchill, except at places where there was 'openings' to side streets. Loads of sho...  read more »

  • Upon returning to the exit from the temple we could no longer go to the many people who crowded along the Nakamise Shopping Street, so we switched to the outside passing in front of the entrance to this shopping arcade that cuts through the block and comes out in front of a starbucks. In the gallery there are many shops with souvenirs, figurines, incense etc and the Council because less crowded as seen in the photos that I attach If this review did you like, you can read my other reviews for Tokyo, kyoto, Osaka, Nara, Hiroshima and Miyajima on Japan and I'm glad a click on: is it useful?

  • Went here on our last day on a bit of a lark, didn't appreciate how fun it would be from the prior reviews. Tons of great food stalls, all the energy of an authentic local market that is grounded by the large temple complex nearby. Great photo and people watching opportunity. Near the top of my Tokyo attractions list.
  • Tons of food and souvenir stalls lining a narrow street. Great street to stroll down after visiting the Senso-ji shrine.
  • Definitely a must visit for tourists. Lots of little shops and street food. Great for trying out the different snacks and picking up souvenirs at the same time. It gets pretty crowded, but that goes with the territory. The typical hours are 9AM to 6PM, so don't go too late or you'll miss everything.
  • It's very touristy, lots of shops sell the same Made in China souvenirs. Still, it's cool just to walk down and see the vendors on your way to Sensoji Temple.
  • What I consider must see in Tokyo. If you can go shortly after new year and there are bunch of stands selling traditional snacks and treats. Although there's gonna be a lot of people! If you can't make it after new years, it's still an amazing sight and the waking street has bunch of interesting shops. Although most of them are probably just there to lure in tourists.
