Asakusa is one of Tokyo‘s most famous quarters and the Sensoji Temple really does have something for everyone. It’s the oldest in the city as well as the busiest, so coming across a thousand other people when visiting is actually the norm.
We loved getting lost around its streets and finding lots of traditional shops where we bought a few ceramic pieces for our house and a kimono.
After grabbing some food in one of the street stalls, where everything was delicious, we crossed the Sumida river and walked until we got to Tokyo Skytree, the tallest tower in the world.
The view from there is amazing, although a little scary, but we don‘t really think that it’s necessary to go up to the second level.
It’s more expensive, there are way more queues and the view from Tokyo’s Metropolitan Government Building is free!
