Asakusa: Easily explored on foot, Asakusa is the center of Tokyo’s low cities. With its famous Sensoji, a Buddhist temple built in the 7th century, Asakusa is overflowing with a rich history and is a center for traditional culture. Asakusa used to be Tokyo’s leading entertainment district with a number of kabuki theaters, where the area was also a major red light district. However, most parts of Asakusa were destroyed during the Second World War, but it has since grown into one of Tokyo’s most visited tourist spots. Here, you’ll find the grand Nakamise Dori, a bustling shopping street which strings a line of local stores for snacks and souvenirs. Asakusa is also home to numerous temples and shrines, with shopping districts and other attractions such as parks, public baths, and museums. It’s the kind of place that will make you feel like you’ve been part of it from the start.
