“One of the best areas in Tokyo”
I love Asakusa. A wonderful temple, the oldest amusement park in Japan, a great view of Tokyo Skytree, cuisine from all around the world, multiple train stations offering easy access to the rest of Tokyo, walking distance from Ueno, Sumida Park offering cherry blossom viewing in spring, museums, craft shops, workshops, friendly staff in every restaurant, English speakers everywhere, a river, a headquarters for geisha, a headquarters for beer, street performers every weekend, and numerous festivals all year round. I could say more about Asakusa, much more. It really is one of the best places in Tokyo, and perhaps even Japan.
