We have a 1 night layover in Tokyo on our long trip home from New Zealand. From what have read on this board, am thinking of staying in Asakusa as a quieter area that gives us a break from our travels. But, we have limited time--we get in at 1:50 pm and then leave the next morning (11:10 am) from Narita. With the time change, was thinking this allows us to sleep in a bed (hubbie said no futon), and wander around in a neighborhood. Does Asakusa fit the bill for a quieter, interesting area that is safe to wander around with good food, that won't be too challenging to get to? Since it is our last night of our vacation, are considering splurging for the Gate Hotel. Thoughts?
Last year, we stayed in Narita proper, had noodle soup, took a wander down to the temple and bought snacks for our journey so was thinking of perhaps trying another neighborhood this time.
Thanks in advance.
