Asakusabashi (浅草橋) is a neighborhood of Taitō, Tokyo.

The district is traditionally known for many wholesale stores, and recently known for its large stores selling traditional Japanese dolls (although some of the largest doll stores, such as Kyugetsu and Shugetsu, are located across Edo-dori avenue, thus belonging to the Yanagibashi neighborhood), or packaging materials, and it hosts a very large concentration of beads stores.

The Ryuhoku campus of the Lycée Franco-Japonais de Tokyo (Franco-Japanese High School of Tokyo) is also located in this neighborhood.


Asakusabashi Station on the Sobu Line, as well as the station of the same name on the Asakusa Line, are both located in Asakusabashi.
