This is quite an atmospheric building despite the crowds who were visiting at the same time as we were. Our guide showed us the wishing tradition - a little bit like three coins in a fountain! It is interesting that there should be a religious...More

Awesome, because I went there in the morning and on a week day! No people there. Also no stores open, but because of that, I took a lot of pretty pictures~~

The temple is the highlight of the area but the markets and food stalls are well worth wandering through

Asakusa has probably become my favourite place in Tokyo. With such a great variety of entertainments, restaurants and shops it can easily compete with Kabukicho and Shibuya. The best plan for exploring Asakusa is not having pan at all. Just get lost in dozens of...More

Beautiful Temple. Great neighborhood to walk and see few more historic sites. Lucky to be there during the festival.

It was extremely crowded. We were on a public holiday there. The shrine looked like many others. Atmosphere was lacking due to the crowds.

We enjoyed the shrine and the shops nearby, although it was crowded during the time of cherry blossoms!

A lovely area to visit, some of 'old Japan' amongst the very modern. Lovely to see Japanese visitors dressed in national costume. Plenty of modestly priced restaurants and excellent transport links. The views from the visitors centre observation deck are great in the day and...More

For me Asakusa is a Microcosm of Tokyo. It encapsulate Tokyo’s transformation from old to modern. As well it also encapsulate the Japanese culture as this place is where you can see/find festivals, foods, markets and of course history and traditions all of these within...More

It is a hidden temple, entrance is very impressive with a small bridge and lots of stairs. Both the sides of the entrance are full of stone carvings.

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.
