Asakusa was very traditional. I love the place. It's a must see when you are in Tokyo. There were souvenirs, foods, costume outfit. I like it a lot here.

If you are near the temple then you must visit the shrine. Lovely to walk around and soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the traditional art.

Small shrine, close to the temple worth a visit if nearby. Some interesting pained glass lamps with traditional and modern Japanese art.

Surrounded by a good market for souvenirs and Japanese snacks, this temple is very large and central. It’s a big tourist attraction, so it’s packed, but definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area.

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

You can take JR Yamanote line from Harajuku to Ueno and transfer to Tokyo Metro Ginza line and alight at Asakusa station. The journey should be around 45 minutes.
