The business vendors I spoke to all recommended I drop by for a brief visit before catching the plane back. So I did a brief stop for an hour – and I was not disappointed. You can find shopping and souvenirs in other places, but Asakusa offers something unique. It’s the “if you only had an hour to spend in Tokyo and want a Japanese experience” place to go. Sure, I am not really into the temples and stuff, but there are other interesting stuff here to look at. Some of my images are now in a stock library so I’m only sharing this image. But do pay this place a visit! – WY

It is pretty much a tourist thing only. Interestingly, Japanese travelers join in the fun too. Tokyo really isn’t totally representative of the whole of Japan, and I ran across some who are visiting from other areas. I just heard a story of an old lady from Tokyo who has never taken a plane in her life, and just had a first-time visit to Okinawa. Guess there are many facades of the world that are unknown to us urbanites. – WY
