The Charm of Tempura Asakusa SAKURA in the Historic and Cultural Heart of Asakusa

Hello everyone! Today, I’d like to talk about our beloved Asakusa. Asakusa is known as one of the areas in Tokyo where history and culture are deeply ingrained. It has flourished as a commercial center since ancient times and was bustling with people during the Edo period. Even today, tourist spots like Sensoji Temple and Kaminarimon Gate attract many visitors. The streets of Asakusa blend the bustling atmosphere of the Edo period with the convenience of the modern era, preserving the traditional downtown culture.

Walking Through Asakusa’s History

First, let’s visit the iconic Sensoji Temple in Asakusa. As one of the oldest temples in Japan, its history dates back to 628. Passing through the Kaminarimon Gate and walking along Nakamise Street, you’ll feel the lively atmosphere of the traditional shopping street that has continued since the Edo period. Here, traditional Japanese sweets, crafts, and unique souvenirs from Asakusa are lined up, making a simple stroll a delightful experience.

Moreover, a short walk will take you to Asakusa Hanayashiki, which retains the charm of the Edo period, and the theater district of Asakusa Rokku, where you can enjoy the retro atmosphere of the Showa era. Walking through the streets of Asakusa, you can truly feel how the history and culture of Japan’s downtown have been passed down to the present day.
