ASAKUSA

Asakusa is a part of Tokyo's downtown Taito district best known for its many temples, particularly Sensōji.


Asakusa is famous for its senbei rice crackers, grilled on the spot, flavored with soy and usually wrapped in seaweed. There are many competing shops in the Nakamise arcade, and packages of senbei are a very popular souvenir among the Japanese as well.
