7 Popular Izakaya in Asakusa You Can Casually Drop By While Sightseeing
Asakusa has always been a busy part of Tokyo. Around Kaminari-mon at Senso-ji Temple (the icon of Asakusa), there are a lot of izakaya (Japanese pubs) that have been around for years. In the streets to the west of the temple (e.g. Hoppy Street (Hoppy-dori), Hatune Koji), you will see a lot of izakaya that have a working-class atmosphere, with a lot of people drinking from midday. It is also popular among tourists, as you can casually experience the working-class vibes of Asakusa.
