Nakamise Dori

Nakamise Dori is a pedestrian lane that leads up to Sonsoji Temple in the neighborhood of Asakusa, Tokyo.  The lane is filled with shops selling souvenirs and traditional trinkets and foods/candies.  On this day, the place was packed as it was such a beautiful fall day.

Interestingly enough, this location had the highest number of non-Asian tourists that I found in my stay in Tokyo.

    Really nice sense of depth in this shot, it gives a really good insight into what Nakamise dori is really like. Asakusa is one of my favourite places in Tokyo, so much packed into that old part of time.
