It is a landmark along the Sumida River and a popular photo spot.

Here you can see the Asahi Super Dry Hall with its famous giant golden flame monument, which locals have, perhaps more accurately nicknamed, “The golden turd”.

the Asahi Beer Annex with its cafes and restaurants are famous not only as a group of buildings, but also as individual tourist spots.

The Tokyo Skytree is also visible from Asakusa, making it an even more popular photo spot for many visitors.
