The shrine itself is nice, but made better by the pedestrian shopping street which approaches the entrance.

The shrine is beautiful, however many people seem to not focus on the smaller attractions on the left side of the temple, there are many beautiful statues and shrines there! Don't miss out!

Beautiful Shinto shrine in the heart of Tokyo. Interesting rituals to perform e.g. purification, fortune telling, throwing coins and making wishes etc. Bustling shopping street as we approach shrine from main road where we made many interesting purchases.

Well, the only regret I had was not being here during the cherry blossom season. The photographs of that period are spectacular. But that did not take away anything from the visit to Asakusa shrine and the Senso-ji temple. Do visit. The place is spectacular....More

We went during some festival and there was a large crowd with lots of locals dressed in traditional Japanese attire. It was quite a nice experience - not so crowded that you couldn't move. Lots of nice little restaurants and cafes and souvenir shops. The...More

We visited the Asakusa Shrine early morning (7:30-8) and it was a great time to go. The little shops that line the road to the shrine were mostly open but there were very few people around. Come hungry! Small eateries and snack sized food are...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
