Asakusa Tokyo Photo Stroll

One of the many parts of Tokyo’s Metropolis is Asakusa, the center of Tokyo’s shitamachi (lower city) districts. Here, the traditional vibe of Tokyo’s history survives while still living within a contemporary lifestyle.

Its main tourist attraction is the Sensoji temple. The temple was built way back in the 7th century; which easily makes it one of Asakusa’s historical landmarks. The route going to Sensoji can be found down a local shopping street called Nakamise.
