The Asakusa district in Taito, Tokyo, Japan is famous for its Senso-ji temple, Nakamise-dori vendor stalls, and throngs of both locals and tourists. As usual within Tokyo, there is much local history to explore as well.
The Senso-ji temple in Asakusa is very ornate, kept in great condition, and tightly surrounded by interesting landscape. There are many people there, entering its courtyard after ritually inhaling incense smoke from a large incense burning station. The temple is quite active, including Buddhist ceremonies behind a see-through fence.
The Nakamise-dori vendor stalls are both entertaining and educational. All kinds of food, trinkets, clothes, and things you don’t really need are packed into a huge labyrinth of pedestrian-only alleys.
