Comment This is my standard travel route.
It may be well-worn, but many of my foreign friends love it.
The new and the old, it should be interesting to experience both in one day!
I will also introduce a place to eat en route.
Budget \3500 ~  \4500
Approximate time required for traveling Half-day

Sensoji Temple
4 Sensoji Temple

Senso-ji Temple was built in the beginning of 7th century, when two fishermen fished a statue of Kannon (the Buddhist goddess of mercy) from Sumida River. Since then, Asakusa had flourished as Senso-ji Temple's temple town. Nakamise-dori Street, with around 90 shops alongside, is perfect for shopping traditional Japanese souvenirs. Try the paper fortune or fresh-baked Ningyo-yaki (sponge cake filled with sweet red bean paste). Enjoy until the scheduled time on the numbered ticket approaches^^
