Japan -> TOKYO -> Asakusa
Asakusa    TOKYO, Tokyo Prefecture

The historic districts of Tokyo are mainly to the north and east of the Imperial Palace. The Asakusa District developed around an historic temple called Sensoji, or Asakusa Kannon.

The district thrived as an entertainment zone from the mid-18th to the early 20th centuries. Today Asakusa continues to attract worshipers to the temple, as well as many shoppers and tourists. Not far away is the commercial center at Ueno and Ueno Park. Beyond the park, the narrow lanes of the Nezu and Yanaka districts preserve the character of the old city’s residential quarters.
