This 5 tiered pagoda is located in the zoo but we could see it from outside and enjoyed learning it was built in 1638, burnt down and rebuilt in 1658, making it the oldest wooden structure in Tokyo.

This sight is breathtaking, it’s absolutely beautiful. The workmanship that must have gone into this building is amazing.

Asakusa has a lot going for it as a place to stay in Tokyo. It has good transport links, good hotels that cater for tourists rather than business travelers. There are interesting sites, such as the Senso-ji Temple, plenty of good and heap places to...More

Learn the history to appreciate this temple more. Very few people in the morning so it's best visit in the morning. Visited here several times throughout the stay because it's nearby hotel stay. Highly recommended.

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.
