I had the honour to spent a few hours in the afternoon in Asakusa during my first time in Tokyo, a must-see place.
It is for me the very hearth of Tokyo, so reach of cultural and spiritual feelings.
My Japanese friends recommended me the visit and I'm grateful to them forever.

There is a long way to the Shrine, it's full of shops with the best of the Japanese souvenirs, a lot of people around and nice Japanese girls in their gorgeous kimonos.
I found everything attractive and in order, you cannot drink walking, but only close to the shops, so it's not for simple tourist walk.
I finally reached the Senso-Ji Temple after having burnt incense sticks together with other people there sharing my same magnificent experience.
Entered in the Temple, I was speechless, admiring people praying in silence and feeling an overall spirit of peace.

I came back to Europe with so charming souvenirs from Asakusa: a beautiful Japanese doll, the Japanese lucky cats, and hand-painted and crafted chop-sticks.

Kawagoe has several shrines and temples with in an old town area, theres a lot to see and many places to eat. Nice walking area but it gets crowded, like all places in Japan. Go early. People can be pushy and rude, but just do your thing and enjoy it!

Asakusa Shrine is a must check in place for your first visit in Tokyo. Full of Japanese traditional environment and crowed people. The most attractive area is the red giant light in-front of the temple.

You can find many local street snack from Nakamise Dori, the long shopping street to Sensoji-temple, especially Japanese dessert (such as Mochi, varieties of soft cream and Melon ban), buy just only one piece to taste ‘coz most of its are super sweet, or you can try Japanese main dish in restaurant around there. Here are many souvenir shop too.

Enjoyed walking amongst the many buildings and temples watching people offering prayers. On a busy day, there may be a few hour wait to pray. Behind is a famous souvenir street with locals selling souvenirs and crafts. It was very busy and we did find a few places to snack.

This a must to visit in Tokyo. Asakusa is full of history.
There will be a lot of people around.
It is the one of oldest shines in Tokyo.
