What is Nakamise??
Tokyo’s most visited tourist destination, Asakusa is known for the great historical site complex and the old downtown atmosphere. The area attracts both Japanese and foreign tourists all year around.
One of best attractions of Asakusa is Nakamise, the shopping street which connects the main gate of Sensoji Temple, Kaminarimon Gate, and the main hall. The 250 m approach is lined with numbers of souvenir shops and food stalls and it’s a great spot to try traditional Tokyo’s street food. Visitors enjoy “Tabearuki” (means ‘walk-and-eat’ in Japanese) at Nakamise Shopping Street. In this article, I’d like to introduce must-try street food and snacks on Nakamise Shopping Street!
If you are planning to visit Sensoji and Nakamise Street, we’d highly recommend you to take a guided tour to explore Asakusa area in depth and learn the rich history! “Asakusa Cultural Walking Tour” by Magical Trip is one of the most popular day-tours in Tokyo which allows you to have the best Asakusa experience only in 3 hours including riding Rickshaw, exploring the traditional town and eating authentic local dish!
