Japan 2010 – Day 1 – Nakamise Dori (Shopping Street) 仲見世通り

About Nakamise Shopping Street 仲見世通り

A shopping street of over 200 meters, called Nakamise, leads from the outer gate to the temple’s second gate, the Hozomon. Alongside typical Japanese souvenirs such as yukata and folding fans, various traditional local snacks from the Asakusa area are sold along the Nakamise. The shopping street has a history of several centuries.

Walking Nakamise Shopping Street

This street was incredible. The number of people that were here was astounding. I lost my friend a couple of times! I didn’t buy anything but probably should have bought some of the cool food.
