Shop in traditional wholesale shops, in business since the Edo period
What you can expectWith Sumida River running alongside it, Asakusabashi is a district that spreads across an area of the Taito Ward. It has flourished as the street that leads up to Sensoji Temple and Kaminarimon. Asakusabashi is the town of "handicraft". Markets and workshops of hina dolls (used as decorations for the Doll Festival on Girls' Day) flourished in the Edo period (1603-1868), and after the war wholesale clothing and textile shops thrived here too. To the east of Asakusabashi station you can visit the long established hina doll and hand fan shops, and to the west, the wholesale shops. In the recent years, emerging artists have started selling their work here, too.
