We went here for halal souvenirs. They got rice crackers, honey candies and cakes. Aside from that the popular Asakusa Sushi Ken Restaurant is also there. Most authentic halal certified sushi place to get your sushi fix. We tasted the best sahsimi here.

During my trip to Tokyo in April 2018, I stayed in Asakusa. Asakusa is accessible from Ginza line, and you can directly go there from Haneda Intl. Airport. You can feel the old Tokyo atmosphere here, especially on Senso-ji area. Staying in and visiting Asakusa...More

Asakusa is a short train journey from Shinjuku and well worth a visit. The main attractions are the Shrine and Pagoda - both hugely impressive and the Sky Tree. Unfortunately the Golden Week crowds were too big to attempt the SkyTree but the Shrine was...More

Lots of restaurants and little bars open, but definitely quieter at night. The temple is beautiful at night when the lights are on.
