Places to see
The most obvious thing to see in Asakusa is Sensoji temple. Its Kaminarimon gate is well-known in pictures and attracts visitors from all over the world. The official name for the gate is Fujin Raijin-mon, and as the name suggests has statues of the gods Fujin and Raijin on either side. The path past the gate is the Nakamise, a shopping path with 89 shops. It began in the early Edo period, and is 250 meters long. Most of the shops sell souvenirs and snacks. Go east on the street outside the gate to find the Sumida river, and the Azuma bridge. From here you can take a water bus to Odaiba and Toyosu along the bay. Also nearby is Tokyo Skytree, a 634-meter tall tower with 2 viewing decks and an entire shopping mall and other attractions.
Asakusa is a great place to feel the history and culture of Tokyo, with an atmosphere different from that of urban centers. It is usually known as a sightseeing area, but there are many old neighborhoods nearby. And because it is removed from the city center rents tend to be slightly more affordable. Because there are not many high rise apartments the neighborhoods have a more relaxed atmosphere and a safe environment.
