We visited here on a Saturday, and it was just too crowded for our taste, Its a must go, but make sure you go on the weekday and maybe you can actually enjoy the temple, Many tours lead to this area I believe

We visited when it was drizzling. But it didnt dampen our mood. Saw a proposal there - so sweet! Really pretty temple. Along the walkway there is plenty of food! Try the glutinous rice with peanut, BEST thing I have eaten there!

The place was so crowded but that just made it all the more enjoyable walking up and down the shopping promenade and tasting the various foods from the Asakusa region

A huge temple to visit surrounded by interesting stalls selling gifts and food. The temple is surrounded by beautiful gardens and the atmosphere of hustle and bustle should be experienced on any visit to Tokyo.

This is one of my must-see areas of Tokyo. Amazing temples, good shopping, plenty of places to eat and loads of good people watching. Arrive early and take your time to enjoy it!

This area of Tokyo is pretty quite but offers many little things to do such as a shopping street and a temple as well as a pagoda.

This is a “high traffic” area popular with local tourists so expect HUGE crowds. But it is definitely worth the effort. The restaurants are a joy to the taste buds at prices equally joyful to the pocket. The shrines are free though it would be...More

Temples, shrines, restaurants, shops and good walks to see! You can make a wish while you're in the Senso-ji Temple. It all works so well here and we definitely love it

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

Lots of restaurants and little bars open, but definitely quieter at night. The temple is beautiful at night when the lights are on.
