Description

There are souvenirs and trinkets lining Nakamise Lane. The name translates to Street of Inside Stores, loosely. Dating back to the seventh century, the shopping street owes its life to the Senso-ji Buddhist shrine. Once upon a time, the shops acted as residences for the temple servants who swept the grounds, now their wall to the wall shops.
