A must-go place in Tokyo for Japanese and Tourists alike. I went on a boiling hot, muggy day in June - a bit of a mistake given all the climbing and walking you will need to do. It's only a small site and you are...More

The history says that the shrine honors the three men who founded the Temple. My visit here showed me that they did a marvelous job. So much grandiosity and beauty that it may touch your heart easily.

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.

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.

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.

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
