» THE JAPANESE STREET FOOD

Asakusa is reminiscent of an older Tokyo, lined with traditional craft shops and street-food stalls along Nakamise Street, near the ancient Sensō-ji Temple. Mid-19th-Century Hanayashiki Amusement Park has thrill rides and cafes, while riverside Kuritsu Sumida Park hosts regular festivals and firework displays. Casual izakaya bars dot the neighborhood, as well as yakitori restaurants serving grilled meat skewers and beer.
