A typical tourist place but it is worth visiting. Just take a slow stroll along the shops to make your way to the temple. If possible, try to visit on a weekend as Asakusa can be real packed on weekends.

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.
