It is ok but extremely touristy. The street is lined with souvenirs shops and shops selling Japanese snacks. This is a place to buy green tea ice cream and the traditional Japanese red beans filled snacks.
This shopping street is incredibly busy, for anybody who gets anxious in crowds this place really isn't for you. The shops are interesting, but the goods are very overpriced compared to the rest of Tokyo.
This is very much aimed at tourists, but it is well worth a visit - just remember everything is priced for tourists. Very busy street but lots of colour and vibrancy. There were several people in traditional Japanese costumes and you can hire one for...More

Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries.

It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.

Not sure. On the Japan-Talk site, John Spacey, a Canadian working as an Enterprise Architect in Tokyo, posted an article regarding Nakamise. There you can follow him and perhaps he might be able to answer your question.
