Here is another place we enjoyed in the morning before the tour buses unloaded. Very pleasant even in the cold weather.

The place has a different tone in the day and night. It can be very crowded in the day, but you should stop by. Then revisit it at night and you will experience a whole different place. Asakusa is one of our favorite places in...More

The Asakusa Temple can be quite crowded and the area around it is filled with largely junk filled shops and stalls. If you can ignore that, the temple is quite beautiful and worth seeing.

Picturess shrine in all its glory. Very very busy as it's a Holiday here in Japan. Surrounded by dozens of souvenir shops.

A must-see in Asakusa. We combined visits to the Temple and Shrine with New Year's shopping, along with what seemed like thousands of Japanese people. Definitely helped add to our cultural experience.

Asakussa Shrine is the heart of the Asakusa complex. It is a truly magnificent building with many locals and tourists gathering there. It is one of the places, where it feels very good.

We were at the temple so of course we made a stop here. Didn't stay long after a long day of touring.

The Asakusa Shrine was built over 1000 years ago and still is very important part to the Buddist culture. One of the entrances leads crowds past an outside market with many different Japanese style souvenirs to the shrine where donations to the shrine are praised....More

From the gate, on your way inside, until your deeper at the shrine, it was a very nice experience. A very long line of thrifty stores that sells japanese food and japanese stuff. You will be able to try that smokey ritual that budhists do....More

Be sure to visit this as you tour around Senso-ji complex in the Asakusa neighborhood. Delightful grounds and area.

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.
