Time Out says
Who knew that Japan’s oldest shopping street is hidden underground in Asakusa? This 60-year-plus shopping street looks as though it’s barely changed since the Showa period – there are old stained ceilings with visible pipes and wires and retro signs plastered on the walls. Here you can find everything from standing-only ramen joints to barbers and fortune tellers. It’s easy to access directly from the Asakusa metro station on the Ginza subway line.
