# Shopping ♪ TOKYO SKYTREE TOWN Attractions to Clear your Shopping List @ TOKYO Solamachi


Tokyo's HOT shopping spot TOKYO SKYTREE
 TOWN: TOKYO Solamachi

The solution to all your Tokyo travel shopping 
concerns is here!

Asakusa, one of the most prominent districts in
 Tokyo's metropolis, is a district you absolutely
 cannot miss. The hugely symbolic Sensoji Temple
 [浅 草 寺] and it's front gate Kaminarimon [雷 門] 
have littered countless photo albums from trips
 to Japan. Make your way to Sensoji Temple and
 find a special street devoted to a lot of small Japanese 
traditional goods and food called Nakamise [仲 見 世].
This shopping street is a part of the charm and
 allure of Japan. Finding great streets full of lovely 
goods, sweets and snacks will make your each step more 
enjoyable ever than before.


Other attractions in Asakusa include
◦ Asakusa Shrine [浅 草 神社]
◦ Denbōin [伝 法院]
◦ Honryuin Temple [本 龍 院]
◦ Hanayashiki [花 や し き]
◦ Asakusa Kannon Onsen [浅 草 観 音 温泉]
◦ Asakusa Park District No. 6 [浅 草 公園 六 区]
◦ Higashi Honganji [東 本 願 寺]

All these sights are great and you'll find several
 restaurants, shopping malls, cookware shops, and bento
shops located nearby too on Kappabashi-dori
[合 羽 橋 道具 街]. Asakusa truly captivates the hearts of
 tourists and holds true for Tokyo's hype. Today we'd like to
 introduce a collection of shops many people are visiting 
in Asakusa poised to become the new central hub for shopping
in the Tokyo metropolitan area.

Located at the foot of the tallest free-standing broadcasting tower in the world, TOKYO
SKYTREE, TOKYO Solamachi is a tingling shopping hot spot
in TOKYO SKYTREE TOWN.
