Asakusa shrine is great but if you are looking for peace and tranquility, you may not find it here. it's definitely worth seeing and they have outdoor shopping stalls that have everything and anything you would want to buy for souvenirs/gifts, etc

I was there at the end of the Golden week so it was packed, thousands of people all walking around and having fun. The shops were busy and the mood was awesome, the excitement of just being there made the crowds bearable.

The markets in front of the shrine are a must see on your way to the shrine, be blessed by the huge smoke pot and enjoy the atmosphere.

The real attraction of the Asakusa Shrine was the surrounding area - streets lined with vendors and stores, arcades with stalls ranging from tourist trinkets to baked goods on the spot. many restaurants of all types and prices.

The shrines are something of a sight to see. I was awed by its sheer size. Not only can you take beautiful pictures of them, but there are many many vendors selling every imaginable souvenier to bring back home...from food products to decorative chopsticks, to...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

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.
