If you get close to temple, you will smell something. Something similar to ash or smoked smell… yes, some of you may not like it like me, but this smell is said to bring luck to you. Whatever your worries are, even if it’s related to your study, love, health, or family, Japanese people believe it will bring you a good result.

When you arrive at asakusa station and entered kaminarimon, you will see a lot of people walking and taking pictures with kimono(or yukata), which is Japanese traditional clothes. First, let me explain what is the difference between kimono and yukata. You can simply divide these two by weather. Yukata is made by cotton fabric while kimono is made by silk fabric. There will not be many process to go through if you wear yukata but kimono is usually hard to wear. Therefor, yukata is thought to be worn during summer season.

In Asakusa, you can find many places where you can rent kimono for few hours. Since Asakusa is famous tour spot, some places have staff who can speak English as well. There are shops where you can only rent kimono, but there are also places where offer rental and photo shoot as well. The fees for renting kimono usually costs JPY 3,000 for all day. Outdoor photo option will cost more like JPY 10,000 per person. You must return rental items before shop closes but be sure to go there early since you will not have a lot of options if you arrive there late.

(1) Hanayashiki amusement park

I was hesitating to put this amusement park to traditional Japan or modern Japan, but I decided to classify it as modern Japan. Different from other ‘developed’ amusement parks in Japan, you should not expect extremes in Hanayashiki amusement park. Operated from 1853, here is considered to be the oldest amusement park in Japan.

Admission fee is JPY 1,000 for adults and JPY 500 for children until elementary students. They have a free ride pass which costs JPY 2,300 but you still have to pay for admission fee even if you buy free ride pass. Once you entered the amusement park, some of you will be disappointed because of its size. Yes, here is very small. It looks like they tried their best to put as many attractions as possible into this tiny space. There are some attractions that will make you scared not by speed or height, but by its age.

(2) Visit Sky Tree
