I went to Sensoji Temple in Asakusa at 8am to get there before the crowds and I made it just in time–as I was leaving hordes of people were showing up. None of the shops were open either, so I didn’t get a necklace like I wanted to replace the one that I lost years ago. Some of the food stalls were open, but it all seemed very standard so I didn’t get anything there.
