Nakamise-dori @ Asakusa, Tokyo

Nakamise-dori is a shopping lane that extends for about 250 meters from Kaminarimon Gate to Hozomon Gate, and is lined with brick and vermilion-lacquered buildings.

The approximately 90 shops that line both sides of the lane include stalls selling ningyoyaki (a baked confection with a thin skin filled with a rich bean jam), handmade rice crackers, crafts of Shitamachi old town and other souvenirs, in addition to merchandise from theatrical performances and dances well loved even by the pros. The street sees a flurry of visitors from all over Japan and around the world.

Wide selection of souvenir but the price is not cheap though.
