Tokyo Tourism: More Asakusa

Asakusa is a district in Tokyo, Japan with a dark history. It was once Tokyo’s main “pleasure district” before World War II. During the war it was destroyed, but today, with some creativity and funding, it’s becoming a “hip” hang out for tourists and shoppers. In the background you can see the Skytree, an icon of the city. Nearby is the Sensō Ji Temple. Asakusa is a great place to spend an afternoon in Tokyo, even if you’re sick with a cold like John was during our time here.
