Asakusa – Part 2

Aside from the temple, Asakusa is famous for its shopping street, Nakamise, which leads up to the temple. It’s busy all the time! This shot was taken before 9am, and there were school kids on excursion already.

The street has all manner of shops, from street food, souvenirs, clothes, toys, even kitchen knives.

Night time was just as busy. The main gate, Kaminarimon, was busy even at 9pm.

And those school kids were still roaming around at that time, too!
