Asakusa and Senso-ji temple

Pretty popular place for tourists. Buildings around this area has old time feel. There are also shops with pretty decent selection of souvenirs. Not to omit rickshaw ride for those who have a little bit more free time. I did not try myself, but prices were moderate if comparing to rickshaw ride in other towns in Japan.

If you are in Tokyo, it is a good spot to visit – show yourself and see others.

It is also place where famous Asakusa Samba Carnival is held at the end of summer.

Senso-ji temple has very nice homepage, which has pages in English.
