“Step back in Edo period in Asakusa”
Typical views that you can expect in Tokyo are skyscrapers yet if you wish to find something old Japan, Asakusa may be the answer. In your guide book, you should find photos of a temple with a big red lantern, the icon of Asakusa. Asakusa comprises famous shopping mall, run-down theme park, brand new commercial building, and casual eateries, all of which still convey good old edo period that lasted until the end of 19th century, when samurai class was still active.
