After introducing ourselves to our Malaysian tourist guide, we then headed our way to Shinjuku Subway Station where we'll be using an ALL-DAY train ticket that costs only 710 yen. This means we could get on any train on the Tokyo Metro Line for 24 hours with only one ticket! ^^
And that's a very good money saver option to travel around Tokyo, Japan. =)
The first stop for the day was a place called Asakusa. Details on it is read below.
Asakusa (浅草) is the center of Tokyo's shitamachi (literally "low city"), one of Tokyo's districts, where an atmosphere of the Tokyo of past decades survives.It was raining heavily that day. We managed by buying lutsinar umbrellas from the Nakamise Shopping Street which is situated just outside the Sensoji Temple. If you're lucky, you could buy an umbrella with the bargain price of only 250 yen. A much cheaper option compared to some outlets that sells it almost triple the price!
Asakusa's main attraction is Sensoji, a very popular Buddhist temple, built in the 7th century. The temple is approached via the Nakamise, a shopping street that has been providing temple visitors with a variety of traditional, local snacks and tourist souvenirs for centuries. (source)
