Asakusa, a district in busy Tokyo, is one of the places wherein the old and the new meets. Stepping into the streets gives you a nostalgic feeling of the not so old Tokyo. It is also a famous tourist spot. I can’t remember not recommending going to Asakusa when Kyoto or Kamakura were beyond reach for my friends visiting Tokyo.
One warm afternoon, while on assignment for my company, I walked around with familiar neighborhood my camera, and took some snaps. That experience was like a walk into nostalgia.
There used to be a local store near the place where I grew up. And that time, it is still normal to drink softdrinks from a bottle. I remember looking for crowns from the bottle rack. Back then, your ticket to winning prizes were hidden under the crowns.
Ahh, I really miss those days.
