Published on 03.31.2016 One of my favorite things about Asakusa is the layout of it's most famous sightseeing spot, Sensoji. The Kaminarimon Gate at the entrance with hustle and bustle of Nakamise Street leading up to the main hall and pagoda of Sensoji is truly a beautiful sight. My only complaint is the sheer amount of tourist in the area on any given day.

Asakusa is one of the biggest sightseeing areas in Tokyo. Sensoji Temple and Asakusa Shrine are two of the reasons for that. Senso is another name for Asakusa and "ji" means temple. The surrounding area is home to one of the biggest festivals in the area, the Sanja festival. I have yet to check it out myself, but hopefully this year I'll have the chance. Definitely worth checking out, if you are here in the middle of May.
