We were not going to be stopped by the rain though. So off we trudged to Asakura district. In a city where there are very few buildings older than 50 years because of the wartime boming, Asakusa has a greater concentration of buildings from the 1950s and 1960s than most other areas in Tokyo do. There are traditional ryokan (guest-houses), homes, and small-scale apartment buildings throughout the district. Asakusa is Tokyo's oldest geisha district, and still has 45 actively working geisha. We saw none of them.
