Sensoji, Asakusa, Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo Sensoji Asakusa Nakamise Dori

It was impossible to go sightseeing in 4 famous places in Tokyo. I completely forgot that Tokyo is huge. We started from Kichijoji, Shin-okubo-Korean town, Harajuku, and Asakusa. When we arrived in Asakusa, the sun was slowly getting lower.

But there were still a lot of tourists in the spacious precinct of Sensoji-Temple, from where we could see the beautiful orangish sky. The locust's trill was solemn and seemed to reach the sky. The place was like a rare green oasis in a vast concrete jungle, Tokyo.

I wouldn't have come here if I had lived in Japan. We take some things for granted and notice their value only after losing them because they are always around us.

Kappabashi is a street for Japnese kitchen tools

One of the reasons we wanted to visit Asakusa was to shop on Kappabashi Kitchen Street, which is famous for kitchenware. A thousand small retail stores stand side by side on the street.

Unfortunately, we were too late and couldn’t buy anything—most small shops close at 5 pm. I’ll definitely come back here.
