Loving Asakusa


A visit to my favourite temple in Tokyo, the Asakusa. Even though this is my second visit, I still love the vibe and all things touristy there.



This temple is very popular amongst tourists and it is often bustling with people and activities. Do try to pop by in the morning around 10am to visit the temple and then walk the street till 12 pm to avoid the mad crowd in the afternoon, especially on a weekend.


Joining in the fun! The water is cold! Brr.


On a Sunday morning, we manage to catch a glimpse of a group of passing Geisha! By the time my friend took out her camera, all she is able to capture is their back view!


Love walking along the streets selling trinkets, souveniors, gift boxes and yummy street snacks! There are a few streets parallel and perpendicular to the main streets with some hidden gems too!


Yums! Some fried dough with Japanese Sweet Potato in them. Divine!


Fresh sen bei! Yums! My favourite is the Sen Bei flavoured with Wasabi wrapped with Seaweed! Total yuma!

    Hi Jo,

    I visited in March / April and it is Winter turning into Spring. Weather was really cooling and comfortable to walk around!

    I’ve never been to Japan in August but it is their summer and it will tend to be hot and humid. Probably something like Singapore but slightly better? But August is their summer vacation, so it will probably gets crowded and all sunny and picture perfect!
