Tokyo's Asakusa neighbourhood

Zone: The Old Districts

Even amid the skyscrapers of Tokyo's multi-million population skyline, there are a still a few old neighbourhoods that preserve the charm of the city's bygone post. Asakusa – or Lower Town – is a district of simple life and pleasure. The Japanese kanji symbol for Asakusa translates as 'soft grass', and the area used to be riverside meadows long ago, where the 'soft grass' hosted a fishing village. The district's hallmark is its great, red lamp on the Thunder Gates that lead the way to the main Buddhist shrine of Asakusa – Sensoji.
