Asakusa Nakaya, located in front of Sensoji, is a specialty store for Japanese festival tools that mainly sells costumes and other petite items. The store is filled with goods that are unique to Japan. Because of the location, this store is very popular among foreign tourists looking for souvenirs and is almost always crowded. They also do demonstration sales of “Tegaki Fuda” every Saturday, where your name is written on a small wooden card. You can see the craftsman carefully writing the letter up close. (If you order one during the demonstration sales, you can receive it on the same day.)
