Speaking of Asakusa, it is the famous Sensoji Temple, but it is not the only one.
In fact, Asakusa Hanamachi, located north of Sensoji Temple, is one of tokyo’s leading flower and liukai, boasting tradition and formality.

Starting in the Edo period of the 17th century, at the end of the Taisho period, we went to a large area with 250 wait chayas and 1,060 geisha at 49 restaurants.
However, asakusa Hanamachi was destroyed by the Great Kanto Earthquake and the continuing devastation of war.
After the war, all the people involved focused on the revitalization, and are still contributing to the regional reconstruction of Asakusa Hanamachi and the improvement of the performing arts culture of geisha.
