Pick up Sightseeing, Restaurant and Shopping

Sensoji Temple and Kaminarimon is Japanese famous temple. Only Japanese people doesn’t visit there, but a lots of people outside Japan also on weekend. There are some restaurants, junk-food shops and sweet-selling shops in “Nakamise” street. You should go to Asakusa on weekday, because some restaurants will be full and you must wait for a long time if you don’t make a reservation in advance. My recommended sweet is “Awazenzai” at Umezono”梅園” store. It’s sweet bean paste on the brown rice called “Awa”. Umezono website is only Japanese language.
