Asakusa is a temple town of Sensoji temple, which is one of the oldest wooden structure in Japan.

There are many shops before you reach the temple and the streets are quite lively every day.

Sutters of the shops are so interesting in Asakusa. Even the shops are closed, you can enjoy them.

Dai was an absolute joy to have as our tour guide. His knowledge of the city and Japanese culture overall was incredible to learn from. We were able to see all the areas and sites we wanted to, but also had plenty of time to enjoy each location.
