Asakusa has prospered as shopping quarter of the Tokyo from the Edo period or before. In the Great Kanto Earthquake or the Second World War, although it suffered destructive damage, remarkable revival was accomplished. After the high-growth era in Shōwa period, although the shopping quarter in Tokyo were also distributed by development of Ikebukuro, Shinjuku, Shibuya, etc. of the area along Yamanote Line, it is being crowded as a town in which the friendly atmosphere of the downtown areas is given even now. The center as sightseeing is a place along the route which reaches Senso-ji through Nakamise where souvenir shops is built and located in a line from Kaminari-mon which is the main gate of Senso-ji. In recent years, Tokyo Sky Tree built to the opposite shore in Sumida River can face the background of a town, and has attached coloring to the scene of Asakusa.

Hello Mikio San,
There is so much in this array of photos, featuring a masterful layout. I have a fairly large computer screen that enables me to see the detail of the individual photos. So much tradition, so much color, and all very sharp... Your note is informative and a pleasure to read.
