The people in this shop are busily making ningyo-yaki, one of traditional Japanese snacks sold along Nakamise Street in Asakusa.
Asakusa is a temple town with a feel of Old Japan and is always fun… and crowded. Although it's in Tokyo, the area around here has quite a different atmosphere which gives us small glimpses of how life used to be. With the completion of Tokyo Skytree, now the world's tallest tower and not far from Asakusa, the area has seen a surge in tourism and is even more vibrant.
