We decided to go to another shrine today in the historic area of Asakusa. Its more touristy than Meiji shrine but also a bit more elaborate because the area includes historic shopping streets, gates and a pagoda.
The first thing you come up to at the main entrance is the Kaminarimon (thunder gate).
After that is the main shopping street that leads up to the main shrine grounds. Most of the shops sell touristy things but there are some interesting traditional foods and Japanese products scattered throughout as well.
