Foreigners visiting Japan look for a taste of Japanese culture in various things such as the city landscapes and traditional performing arts.
One of the most popular tourist spots in Tokyo is Asakusa with its temple sensoji, nakamise, and jinrikisha, where people can experience the traditional downtown atmosphere.
At the end of summer, Asakusa Samba Carnival brings in a festive mood of Brazilian rhythm in the atmosphere.
The combination of these two may be strange – why a samba carnival in Asakusa? Initially, this carnival started in order to revive Asakusa.
However, there are over 500,000 visitors as of now, and it has become one of the popular festivals in Tokyo that marks the end of the summer.
The pride and passion of people in Asakusa who loves festivities and seeks out for new things may have some similarities with the passionate rhythm of Brazilian samba.
Why not experience this unique moment of Brazilian culture in the downtown city of Asakusa this summer?
