Nakamise is a 250-meter long street that leads up to Sensoji Temple. Lined either side with stalls selling anything from ningyoyaki or taiyaki (shaped pancakes with red bean paste inside) to Japanese swords and paper umbrellas, Nakamise is more than just a tourist trap—it is actually one of the oldest shopping streets in Japan, visitors to Sensoji having provided a constant flow of customers over the centuries. Shops are open from 9am until 7:30pm.
