Asakusa is a classic destination for sightseeing in Tokyo. Famous landmarks include Sensoji temple and Kaminari gate, with its large red lanterns. There are many things to enjoy such as shopping districts like Nakamise, dressing in a kimono and exploring the streets, or taking a rickshaw to visit tourist spots. Kappabashi, Japans largest restaurant equipment shopping district and Tokyo Sky Tree are also close by. There is also Ueno Park, a place where you can connect with nature and history with sites like Kaneiji temple, and Shinobazu Pond. Japans leading art galleries and museums dot the city, and in the Ueno Zoological Gardens, there are pandas. You can also find a bargain in the bustling Ameyoko market street.
