as soon as you get out, face right

Just follow the alley and it will lead you to Asakusa Shrine.

if you finally walk on the alley without a roof, you’re near!


There are a lot of shops from left to right offering food, bags, fans and more!


There are also a lot of people in Asakusa Shrine/Sensō-ji wearing a Kimono or more specifically a Yukata (worn during the summer) .

It was a shame since I wasn’t able to do this but you can plan ahead and rent one from Klook. They have more than 1 shop which offers Kimono/Yukata rentals for you to choose from which you can easily access on the links below.

the struggle to take a photo at the shrine is real


up until the time before we left, it was hard getting a decent photo haha!

all photos taken using an iPhone / Fujifilm X-T20 18-55 mm

NCT 127 Taeyong went here too!
