I so love this post, I think about Asakusa quite often. We started our first trip to Tokyo there. We were to go to Mt. Fuji but it was delayed till the next day, so we wandered about Asakusa all afternoon. It was wonderful. cheers, parsnip
Lush, vibrant, lovely. You are a natural storyteller, even without words.
>Every trip to Tokyo should begin or end here.Same here and every trip to Osaka should reach a climax in Tennoji-shinsekaiThose photos somehow remind me of 1980's. How many autumns ago did you take them? Maybe they just don't change much that's all....
These were taken November 2012. Maybe I just have an 80s eye! :)There is a retro quality about Asakusa, which is why I love it.
I always begin my trip here because I go to Kurodaya Paper to have all my presents wrapped. They wrap them so much better than I can and with much nicer paper and anyway, if I wrapped them before travelling, they'd look terrible after. I'm not all that keen on Sensoji, although I know many people are.
