Asakusa is a place where you will not get sicked of going even for how many times. The place is the actual representation of Japan (since this is the oldest temple in Tokyo). Before reaching Sensoji Temple, you will pass through the Nakamise-dori. It's a street full of omise (store) selling different stuffs like Kimono (Japanese traditional garment), okashi (Japanese sweets), and lot of souvenirs that you can only see in Asakusa. After passing through Nakamise-dori,you will easily see the Sensoji Temple. There's an incense urn where lots of people are gathering.Japanese believes that the incense smoke from the urn will make you smart. Also there is the dragon faucet,where people either drink or wash their hands (it is a belief that it brings luck and prosperity). Then the last is inside the Sensoji temple,where you can offer your prayers and respect. You can throw coins before offering a prayer.
When going to Asakusa, don't forget to bring your camera or video camera. Don't worry because the place might be crowded (especially along the Nakamise-dori) but when you are already there,you'll feel that you just have to enjoy the crowd. If you plan on buying something, bring extra money since the prices are quite high. Foods? There are lot of food stands inside but also the prices are quite high. The best day to go to Asakusa is during weekdays since the place is not that crowded.
Although I've been to Asakusa twice,I'm not getting sick yet of going again especially during events and festivals. I'm sure I will come back to Asakusa some time.
