Embrace the crowd
As a last word of advice, just know that when you go to Nakamise Dori, it’s going to be crowded. This shouldn’t keep you from going. Far from it, the crowd is part of the experience and its excitement.
As you wait to press through the endless congregation of people outside Senso-ji temple, take plenty of time to look around you. Soak in the views of the magnificent temple grounds, the colorful shops and, of course, the throngs of people who have come from all over the world to see this cultural icon.
