Sumo's coming to Asakusa 1/3 These past few days, we saw a new shop setting up on Kaminarimon Dori, near the Kokusai Dori intersection.

Asakusa Sanja Matsuri 4/28 Invariably in front of the omikoshi there will be someone from the townspeople association responsible for it who will be waving a haraigushi (stick with paper strips folded like lightnings or "shide") -this object is used in Shinto and waving it is supposed to purify the area the omikoshi will pass from. #Asakusa, #Sanja, #Matsuri, #omikoshi Taken on May 17, 2014. © Grigoris A.

The newest addition to our neighborhood: Nanairo photography studio (http://nana-iro.tokyo/) on Kaminarimon Dori, in one of Asakusa's most prominent spots, promises to transform you into an oiran courtesan or a samurai through its huge selection of costumes and make-up options.

Asakusa Chikagai 1/11 It's right outside Matsuya Ekimise department store but for some reason most people overlook it: a stairway going down and saying something about "Asakusa Chikagai" or "Asakusa underground commercial street".
