Asakusa (浅草) is a district in Taitō, Tokyo, Japan, most famous for the Sensō-ji, a Buddhist temple dedicated to the bodhisattva Kannon. There are several more temples in Asakusa, as well as various festivals.
For most of the twentieth century, Asakusa was the major entertainment district in Tokyo. The golden years of Asakusa are vividly portrayed in Kawabata's novel 'The Scarlet Gang of Asakusa' (1930; English translation, 2005). In its role as a pleasure district, it has now been surpassed by Shinjuku and other colorful areas of the city.
Shin Megami Tensei III: NocturneEdit
In Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne, Asakusa is the birthplace of the Manikins. They were made from the mud in a river flowing in Mifunashiro. The Manikins actively try to restore their town, while Futomimi spends his time in Mifunashiro meditating about the Manikins' future and trying to create a Reason for his people. Chiaki and her followers invade the town and proceed to massacre the Manikins and steal their Magatsuhi, summoning her demonic sponsor, Baal Avatar.
Some Confidant events happen in an observation tower located in Asakusa.
