We went during some festival and there was a large crowd with lots of locals dressed in traditional Japanese attire. It was quite a nice experience - not so crowded that you couldn't move. Lots of nice little restaurants and cafes and souvenir shops. The...More

We visited the Asakusa Shrine early morning (7:30-8) and it was a great time to go. The little shops that line the road to the shrine were mostly open but there were very few people around. Come hungry! Small eateries and snack sized food are...More

If you are in Tokyo you should definitely go to the Asakusa Shrine, its is very nice, I liked it very much! It is in the more cultural, old part of Tokyo, that it is worth the visit. It has a long street between the...More

Asakusa Shrine is right next to Sensoji, but once you pass under the torii gate, it seems to be in a world by itself, much more private, quiet and orderly. Part of its attraction is the wide and uncrowded yard in front of the shrine....More

It is the famous shrine from XVII century. When you are in Senjo-ji, you can go 100 m on the east and you will see the shrine with beautiful roof tiles.

The amount of visitors at the shrine is overwhelming and it is not surprising. This is a shrine that is certainly worth seeing. On your way to the shrine, you have an amazing amount of souvenirs to choose from, too.

Walked upto the Senso-ji Temple while shopping for souvenirs and tasting yummy goodies on our way. Tourists can bargain and get the best deals out here.

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
