For Today’s Japan, we visit the beautiful Asakusa neighbourhood at night and take a trip through the busy street located in the Sensou-Ji Temple in Tokyo.
The Nakamise-douri (仲見世通り) is a street on the approach to the temple. It is said to have come about in the early 18th century, when neighbors of Sensou-ji were granted permission to set up shops on the approach to the temple. The length of the street is approximately 250 meters and contains around 89 shops.
