I'll preface this review by stating that this is an alternative, of sorts, to the majority of reviews you'll read on this part of town. I'm not a big fan of temples and shrines in general. I don't find them to be either spiritually enlightening...More

The oldest shrine in Tokyo is really worth a visit. Best to go early as it gets quite crowded. The Geisha girls love having their photo taken. :)

Asakusa is probably on the top of most everyone's list who visits Tokyo because of the history and the beautiful structures. Easily accessible via Tokyo Metro from Ueno or Tokyo Station, you will be rewarded with sites of buildings and structures from 1300 years ago....More

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.
