Last Friday - early in the evening, I had a nice walk in Asakusa. This is a very popular tourist spot in Tokyo, but I found it was unusually crowded.
Side streets were not as bad. Dressed up ladies were going towards the temple.
Entrance to Nishi-sando (Western Approach to the Temple).
Inside the Nishi-sando shopping area - stores were closed already at 6:20 pm.
Little walkway towards the main temple building.
Looking towards the main gate from the side of the main temple building.
I learned that it was very crowded because of Hozuki Ichi.
Many people were lined up to pray at Sensoji.
Looking at the Five-storey Pagoda from the east side of the temple.
A sign welcoming tourists to Taito Ward.
I had a very nice stroll.
