Asakusa at Night

During my visit to Tokyo in late November/early December, I stayed in Asakusa. I had previously only been to Asakusa during the day, so it was interesting to see the area at night. The main tourist attraction in Asakusa is the Sensoji temple and the shopping street leading up to the temple, Nakamise street. During the day, the temple and shopping area are swamped with tourists.  But at night, the shops are shuttered and the people are gone. The temple is still lit-up and the area feels quite peaceful.
