Namikase Shopping Street follows past the Kaminari gate in Asakusa. The whole atmosphere is bustling, reminiscent of Japanese festivals with stalls on either side selling goods and snacks. The main shops you can find down Namikase are souvenirs such as Japanese fans, Kitsune and other masks, Japanese umbrellas etc. A word of warning though, although you can get good quality... More

Located right before entering Sensoji temple, this are has lots of small shops selling various items from food, clothes, souvenirs, display. The price is attractive too and I think you will enjoy your time here, even just browsing from shops to shops. I suggest to come early to enjoy the atmosphere.

With it's many traditional Japanese stalls, blended with the view of the historical Sensoji, Nakamise is tourist paradise. Good- to superior-quality souvenir items are plenty and the market is very near the subway exit. One may also be interested with the many rickshaws (vehicles being pulled by men wearing rather skimpy shorts) that run around the adjacent streets.

Nakamise Shopping Street is a souvenir shopping road full of shops on either side of the street. Even though many tourists come here to see Shrines, Temples and Pagodas, it’s not really a tourist trap but rather a convenient ‘one stop destination for all souvenir shopping’. Prices are good and I bought several reasonably priced souvenirs.

This is a walking street with every imaginable product of Japanese culture. It is on every sightseeing tour and within walking distance from Asakusa train station.

I have enjoyed my shopping in this area. There are lots of souvenir items, food and restaurants around. There are free sample food everywhere and lots of tourists roaming around looking at every shop. The prices are usually standard around the area.
