Very crowded and cool (japanese attire girls walking around). There are fake japanese girls...... Look for the local cute girls. Free entrance to the Shrine. Good shopping ground too for souvenirs

Lovely shrine and pagoda. The area has gift markets, noodle shops and more. Easy walk from subway or river taxi landing.

Definitely worth a visit and a stroll through. We were lucky enough to have an English speaking guide with us, so he was able to educate us on the history of the temple and area. This is Tokyo's oldest Buddhist temple that was originally built...More

A really powerful experience at this shrine. There is some magic here. Don't forget to try the omiguji (fortune scripts) and buy some good luck charms.

Most of this area is a must go to. Unfortunately it rained the afternoon we scheduled to visit but we made the best and found some great gifts for our friends and family. Must see

Asakusa Shrine is a very quiet and serene place. I think most mistake it for the main square of Sensō-ji where the five story pagoda and Hozōmon reside. This shrine is a little ways off away from the crowds and bustle of people. When I...More

Shrine is Nice but if you have done Kyoto shrines then you can give this a miss. Visit only for street market nearby and the cruise alongside. It is Very convenient to go to this place.

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
