  • I found the Nakamise street not far from my hotel and was amazed at all the authentic Japanese items and foods for sale, the Sensoji temple was a bonus, I guess it's a bit touristy but I enjoyed it.

  • A fun place to go to for street food and souvenir shopping! Don’t go on the weekend if you want to avoid the crowds! Lots of ladies and some guys dressed in the traditional kimono outfit! Definitely worth coming to! We bought bags and bags of really cute stuff and we went again the next day because I had to buy the other two of the smiling cat! Pepper & Morris
  • Very busy street but if you go early you can try all the snack without lining up for it. A lot snack and souvenirs vendors. A bit pricy because it a tourist place, still a nice place to check out in the way to the temple.
