We started this day from Asakusa, by visiting the oldest temple in Tokyo: Sensoji temple (info: temple guide). The charming shopping streets (Nakamise Dori) around Asakusa provide a fantastic opportunity to do you souvenir shopping. Here you can find absolutely everything - Japanese pictures, scrolls, fans, sweets, even swords and kimonos! From Asakusa you'll have a splendid view to Tokyo Sky Tree - it's the perfect distance for making good-quality photos.
Start your stay in Tokyo in the district of Asakusa. Here you will be transported back in time to get a feel for traditional Japan with its array of old Buddhist Temples, shrines, gardens and narrow shopping streets brimming with traditional gifts and local treats.
I could still admire the old vintage charm of Asakusa even though it was packed with humans. I wished we could have visited more antique and ceremic shops! There are lots of good food places too.
