Tokyo's oldest Buddhist temple, Sensō-ji, is located in Asakusa. There are lots of shops on the way to the temple, and I felt like many had mostly the same things (charms for mobile phones, etc).

Kaminarimon Gate

Nakamise shopping street. It leads to Sensō-ji.


I was surprised when I saw this symbol (swastika) being used in Japan, because it is strongly associated with Nazism. However, it was used already long before the Nazi Party decided to adopt it.

Entrance to Hanayashiki amusement park. Seems to be mostly for children, but I can recommend the space shot. :)

I missed a few chances to have more videos. A few times when I thought the camera was recording, it wasn't after all.
