Tokyo Shopping

Nakamise Market (Nakamise-dori)

Fodor's Review

This narrow street is heaven for those seeking out traditional knickknacks and souvenirs. It is just as lively as it was when it was established in the Edo period, although now shops sells cheap sushi key chains and T-shirts alongside traditional hairpieces and silk screens. The entrance is marked by the giant red lantern at the Kaminari-mon, and ends at the grounds of the Senso-ji Complex.
