The history of Nakamise

History From the beginning of Nakamise Nakamise Nakamise Nakamise is one of the oldest shopping streets in Japan. After the Tokugawa Ieyasu opened the Edo shogunate, the population of Edo increased and more visitors to Sensoji temple were crowded, but along with that, people in the prefecture and around the prefecture, which were subject to the cleaning of Asakusadera Temple inside the premises, The privilege of opening store opening was given on the approach path. This is the beginning of Nakamisei, it is said to be around Genroku, Kiho (1688? 1735).
In the Edo era, the shop near Nibyo gate from the Legislative Yuan was called a shop (Yakuta), 20 shops were lined up, Kaminarimono was called a flat store (Hiramisho), and toys, sweets, souvenirs etc. , And gradually the number of shops increased and developed into Monzencho, which has the most form in Japan.
Due to the political change of the Meiji Restoration, the temple shrine was forfeited by the government and the premises of Sensoji temple became the jurisdiction of the Tokyo prefecture, but the government newly created 5 parks in Tokyo, enacted the park law and had all previous privileges Was picked up from Nakamiseyo.
Meiji 18 May (1885) Tokyo prefecture ordered the removal of all the stores of Nakamiseyo, after crying and crying out, a brass warm rich new store was completed in December the same year, the modern Nakamisei was born.
