Asakusa, is a traditional-style downtown area of Tokyo, known to Japanese as a Shitamachi, with its nostalgic Edo period vibe. The main areas can be a bit touristy but there are many local hidden street food gems in the back streets, some in plain sight, but buried between the countless shops. It’s hard from the outside looking in to know what’s the real deal so I thought it’s time to share with you my recent heavyweight Asakusa food hitters. This is a Japan street food tour in the Tokyo Asakusa area and guide on where to go and how to get there. Check the links before to see the exact street food restaurant location. Enjoy this easy travel guide to Asakusa and all of its Japanese street food pleasures.
