Asakuka in Persona 5

Asakusa is a location in the series.

About[edit | edit source]

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 Yasunari 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.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne[edit | edit source]

In Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne, Asakusa is the birthplace of the Manikins. They were made from the mud in a river flowing in their holy ground, 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. After Jyoji Hijiri is killed in the Amala Temple, Chiaki and her followers invade the town and proceed to massacre the Manikins and break into Mifunashiro to successfully steal their Magatsuhi, summoning her demonic sponsor, Baal Avatar.

Persona 5[edit | edit source]

Asakusa is one of the hangout locations available in the Tokyo map. It is unlocked after Lovers Arcana Confidant (Ann Takamaki) has reached Rank 7. The protagonist can hang out with his Confidants by visiting Nakamise Street and Sky Tower which are located there.

Persona 5 Royal[edit | edit source]

There is an unused Skytree event where Sojiro Sakura gives the protagonist tickets to take him and his friends to go the skytree to thank him for helping Futaba. A newspaper solicitor gave them to Sojiro and thought that since its summer vacation, he might as well give them away. The protagonist and his friends enjoy viewing the city from up in the skytree but they worry about Medjed's deadline. Makoto checks if they've done anything yet but so far nothing has happened. The event ends after they realize that they shouldn't worry about it and just enjoy this while they still can. The event is fully voiced and was meant to be added after Futaba's palace was completed but never was added.

Persona 5 The Animation[edit | edit source]

In the anime adaptation of the game, Ren and his friends visited the Sky Tower for the first time after Sojiro Sakura gave tickets to them after helping Futaba.
