Nakamise Shopping Street (Kaminarimon) - 04 Dec 2017 The atmosphere here is very lively! The first time I was in Tokyo I missed this place because I forgot to check the opening times of Nakamise Dori. Be sure to make the most out of your visit to Senso-Ji. There can be a lot of crowds, but in general, it is okay for me. I would suggest to venture out of the main road of Nakamise Dori and just wander around. While there may be a lot of souvenir vendor in Nakamise Dori, food-wise, there are several interesting choices in surrounding area. Included the famous Suzuki-en (they have the creamiest matcha ice cream!) and the best croquette that I've ever had in Asakusa Menchi.
