Asakusa Walking

Both Zaini and I are very fond of Asakusa. Its' nice and laid back, once you get away from the crazy tourist crowd that congregate at the Kaminarimon Gate, shopping for ehem, tacky souvenir stuff at Nakamise Dori or visiting Senso-ji.

Asakusa, that we've come to love...

  1. Yeah, Asakusa is a fun part of Tokyo, famous for the Senso-ji temple, Nakamise shopping street and the Kappabashi kitchen street for those plastic replicas of food seen in restaurant windows.

  8. @cocomino,
    Yes, we did. Do you have any favourite sushi place there?

    We kinda like Sushi Zanmai because the price is affordable. ^^

  9. @Bananaz,
    LOLz at your comment. But true also, in our case. "Aku suka"/I like Asakusa. ;)

    Also, not to be confused with Akasaka - which is another part of place in Tokyo. ^^

  14. That's a gorgeous grin in that first photo! When I first came to Tokyo, I got monumentally confused between Akasaka and Asakusa. Now I know which one is best! :)

  16. @foong,
    It's not a hip place compared to other parts of Tokyo. It's quiet but that's how we like it.

  17. @London Caller,

    Do you know that there's a sate museum too? ;)

    You can consider open a peanut museum in your kampung.

    Gotta have peanut farm and peanut processing plant first, then I'll open the peanut museum. You be my first customer, right? ;)
