Asakusa, apart from being a historic district of Tokyo, is one that reflects the inimitable character of Japan.
This traditional downtown area holds the classic spirit of the nation, a place still removed from the modernity of the city. Here, in the entanglement of the narrow streets, the roots of the culture are embedded.
The are provides a fascinating glimpse into the contradictory ethos of the people, combining the imagery of post-war nostalgia with the undesciplined rough edges of a township struggling to enter the present day.
It certainly cannot be classified as beautiful yet here lies its charm ― one uniquely Japanese.
