This is a great place to see traditional temples and open air shopping. Even though this was one of the hottest days of the year, the air near the row of shops was cool. It seems that the is air conditioning, even though the shops...More

We expected Tokyo to be an overwhelming megacity - and it is in some parts - but Asakusa is a totally different story. It's almost like staying in a large village. Streets are busy but in many areas only for pedestrians, there is a lot...More

Asakusa offers a market offering many useful items, from trinkets and souvenirs all the way to manga characters. We used it as a place for last minute gift shopping and it didn't disappoint. The prices seemed fair to me. The biggest positive was that I...More

Very conveniently located and having good range of street shopping. Many shopkeepers do understand English and also you get decently prized items like Japanese fans, samurai swords and inviting cats etc. It's unusually busy but conveniently located and worth a visit. I did verify the...More

Asakusa is one of my favorite places in Tokyo! Even if I went to Japan every year, I would still come back to this place every time. There are so many shopping vendors that sell everything from kimonos to umbrellas to Japanese sponge cakes. You...More

This is a beautiful temple in the center of Tokyo. Next to the temple there a lot of small shops mostly with touristic products. Good for a short visit.

There is an excellent range of types of places to eat here, lots of good bars, not too loud. I found it to be very safe. I have been a couple of times over the years and would visit again.

Its a bit of a tourist trap but well worth visiting - early morning is best before the crowds arrive. The site is impressive and the narrow streets full of tourist shops well worth exploring. There is a great little knife making shop - making...More

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.
