What to do in Asakusa

When can I find the best deals on Hotels in Asakusa?

Asakusa was Tokyo's premier entertainment district during the Edo period, while recent centuries saw the mushrooming of theatres and geisha houses. This neighbourhood was heavily bombed during World War II. Although it has since recovered, Asakusa retains a more traditional atmosphere compared with some of Tokyo's glittering, ultramodern districts. Its main attraction is Sensoji Temple, Tokyo's oldest temple. There's an ample selection of hotels in Asakusa, and the options generally range from unfussy ryokans and hostels to laid-back, mid-range hotels. Room rates in Asakusa tend to increase around Christmas and New Year, during Japan's Golden Week holidays, and during Sanja Matsuri, a massive Shinto festival held in Sensoji Temple every May, so avoid those dates if you want to save on accommodations.
