Asakusa

One of the most popular temple districts in Tokyo, Asakusa is located within the city centre. It annoyed us a little that we were unable to use our JR passes all the way there, but finding the place is easy enough as it has it’s own metro line. The temples and also the surrounding sales boths are all in red and white, making the actual temple area seem even larger than it actually is.  I don’t know if it had anything to do with us going on a Sunday or not, but the area was pretty crowded. From Asakusa it is also easy to see the new tower that is being built in Tokyo, the Tokyo Sky tree. Sadly, it is not possible to enter this amazing building yet, but it does look pretty cool from the outside as well. Guess this is my excuse to go back soon 😉
