T04 Asakusa

Must-Visit Tourist Attraction

Tokyo’s Oldest Temple

The Harmonious Blend of Sacredness and Secularity

The Most Touristy Destination with 30 Million Visitors Annually: A Fusion of Tradition and Modernity. This area has a rich history, evolving from a place of faith, centered around Senso-ji Temple, to a vibrant secular hub, attracting people from all walks of life. During the Edo period, people came here to savor both aspects of life. Today, tourists visit with the same anticipation.

Taito Ward, where Asakusa is located, is known for its many artisans and the preservation of traditional crafts. At the Edo Taito Traditional Crafts Center, you can catch a glimpse of this rich heritage. Additionally, a visit to the nearby Kappabashi Kitchenware Town reveals a reputation for offering a wide array of kitchen supplies. Not only catering to professionals with professional-grade items, but also featuring a selection that appeals to the general public.
