Asakusa was once the busiest place in Tokyo. The once famous Asakusa rokku was full theaters, cinemas, and all kind of shows. All that came to an end after WWII. The bombing and the fires destroyed mostly everything. Asakusa was rebuilt but all the lights and theaters are gone. Still if you go there and walk a little you still cant catch a glimpse of what once was.
