In Asakusa's newest hotel, the "Gate Hotel Kaminarimon" (http://www.gate-hotel.jp/) a stylish stand with the kumade from our friends, Matsushita Shoten (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/196047390004571231/) informing guests about the Tori no Ichi fair/festival; they make a great old-new contrast with the Sky Tree in the background although the reflection on the glass sort of spoils it! #Asakusa, #Gate, #hotel, #kumade, #Matsushita #Sky #Tree November 4, 2014 © Grigoris A.

Literally, one of Asakusa:s treasuries: the main municipal library of Taito Ward in Kappabashi/Western Asakusa has a great collection of books and documents related to the area and its culture. And a big kumade (good fortune rake -see http://www.pinterest.com/pin/196047390002798552/) in its atrium entrance! #Asakusa, #Kappabashi, #library, #kumade, September 2, 2014 © Grigoris A.

The entrance of "Matsuriyu" (http://www.matsuri-yu.com/) Asakusa's most luxurious sento/public bath (in essence, a spa) in the 7th floor of the ROX department store in Kokusai Dori/Str. Sento are getting fewer by the day in Tokyo but the shitamachi (i.e. old downtown) remains a proud bastion of the tradition! #Asakusa, #ROX, #sento, #bath, #Matsuriyu, #Kokusai September 21, 2014 © Grigoris A.

Not exactly something you'd expect to find in a Tokyo traditional neighborhood: a café where you have your coffee while playing with Ondes Martenot, perhaps the world’s first electronic instrument invented in France in the 1920s-1930s. But then again, back in the 1920s-1930s Asakusa was the “Montmartre of the Orient”. Taken on December 17, 2013. © Grigoris A. Miliaresis

The two omikoshi (adults' and children's) from the Asakusa Tobu (eastern quarter) are permanently on display in Ginza Line's Asakusa station, outside the 2nd platform ticket barrier, together with a TV playing Sanja Matsuri videos. Many mornings I see this gentleman stopping in front of them for a quick pray on his way to work (I presume). #Asakusa, #station, #omikoshi Taken on June 3, 2014. © Grigoris A. Miliaresis
