Asakusa Kaminarimon is one of those places one invariably visits or which someone in one’s tour group wants to visit.

Though there is a shrine present in the location in the form of the Sensoji Temple, Asakusa Kaminarimon is best remembered for the various lanes and alleys containing various shops and selling a large variety of items. Most of the shops here sell some form of souvenir or Japanese snacks but there are other stores which sells jewellery and even a pet shop. There are a lot of food options available with there being some sushi trains and ramen shops.

The comment below about this being a tourist trap is somewhat true. This place is teeming with tourists and there are some shops which are not afraid to set a high price for the service they offer. Case in point being the kimono hire (3000-4000 yens) which can be pricey when compared to other places where kimonos can be hired.

The most visited area of Asakusa is the Kaminarimon Gateway and its shops. To avoid the crowds,, we arrived by 10:30 a.m., as the shops were opening. An hour later, the whole area was swarmed, and walking around became am obstacle course. That same day, we decided to return at night. It was a totally different perspective, beautifully illuminated, from the enormous gate and with a clear view of the stunning shrine at the end of the shops. We had the whole place to ourselves, and walking along the closed shops, we noticed each one had the most beautiful paintings on each of their rolling doors. Without the crowds, you'll be able to take amazing photos of all these, as well as the rest the absolutely gorgeous surroundings. It is a sight you'll never forget. Enjoy!

The Asakusa Kaminarimondori street is a great shopping street leading from the main street from the train station to the Sensō-ji temple. It can get very crowed in the middle of the day but you can find a lot of souvenirs here. There are a lot of good food stalls here too.

You can’t miss this street lined with dozens of shops.
It runs from the Kaminarimon to the sensoji main temple in Asakusa. And it has some nice little craft shops, best umbrellas f.e. Always handy in rainy Tokyo.
