“Some chance to find tradition in a modern city”
After traveling to Japan 4 times so far, I started to feel annoyed of the busy vibe of Tokyo after a while. For sure it's an exciting city, but to discover Japan it's better to visit other places.
Asakusa is a good chance to feel the tradiotional side of Japan in its modern capital.
I love to walk around this area and stay at one of the many Khaosan guesthouses you can find here. Those are a great oppertunity to meet new people in this anonymous city.
