The Asakusa samurai

Asakusa Samurai is a blog — now dormant, apparently — all about Asakusa, my favorite district of Tokyo. [More posts about Asakusa here.]


Asakusa is where the Japan of old is best preserved. The area has even begun capitalizing on domestic nostalgia by bringing back such blasts from the past as rickshaws.



The Himiko, which ferries tourists up and down the Sumida River.
