Asakusa is a district in the Eastern end of Tokyo; the end that serves the more traditional side.
Asakusa's main attraction is Sensoji, a very popular Buddhist temple. The temple is approached via the Nakamise, which literally translates to Inside Stores which has many souvenir shops for everyone.
For many centuries, Asakusa used to be Tokyo's leading entertainment district. During the Edo Period (1603-1867), when the district was still located outside the city limits, Asakusa was the site of kabuki theaters and a large red light district. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, modern types of entertainment, including movie theaters, set foot in Asakusa.
When coming to Tokyo, Asakusa is one of those area's where you must see.
