Asakusa picnic

Asakusa is a city also famous for foreigners.

I thought about the course about Asakusa from the main hall of the famous "Senso-ji Temple".

 

 

The Asakusa course has been added to the same map as introduced in " 【Tokyo Hanami Course】 picnic around Tokyo Station".

  • Blue numbers are "Asakusa Picnic" course
  • Red purple numbers are "Picnic around Tokyo Station" course

Please zoom in on the blue numbers.
