When one thinks of Tokyo’s storied Shita-matchi area, one specific spot immediately comes to mind: Asakusa. Seeped in both Pre-War and immediate Post-War architecture, ancient temples and shrines, and an impressive selection of traditional-style Tokyo gourmet such as monjayaki and Edo-style sushi, visiting Asakusa is akin to stepping back in time. Take in the iconic giant red lantern at Sensoji Temple, or ride the express elevator up to the top of Sky Tree for an uninterrupted 360 degree view of Tokyo. Enjoy cuisine items that have been on the menu since the Edo era, such as dojo nabe and Yanagawa pot. Bring your taste buds back in time with you!
Asakusa’s hotel offerings tend to be more mid-range to budget, with a few sparkling new luxury options around Sky Tree. Make sure to utilize Expedia’s easy hotel search function to find the best Asakusa hotel for your Tokyo travel needs. We recommend picking a hotel with a view of Sky Tree, the crown jewel of Tokyo’s skyscraper architecture.
Asakusa has multiple transit options, including the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line and the Toei Oedo Line. You can easily access both the Bayside / Odaiba areas and Tokyo Disney in nearby Chiba. But you might not want to leave the Asakusa neighborhood at all thanks to the delicious food and throwback retro shopping. You can always take in a luxury hotel meal while watching the city spread out below from the top of Sky Tree’s observation deck. Book your Asakusa hotel with Expedia today and enjoy the fine taste of Shita-matchi!
