Worth the trip and not to be missed. Everything you expect from a shrine in a movie is here. There is nothing missing or any sort of let down it is the pinnacle of the romantic notion of what a shrine may appear to be.

This shrine, and the surrounding market, have a distinctly Japanese feel to them, and are worth the visit just for the opportunity to take some great photos.

Shrines are free! Visit them all! This one is huge! It is busy at all times of the day and night, so getting a good picture can be a bit tough...

This is a must see in Tokyo. Absolutely beautiful. Recommend not going on a paying tour as you will not have enough time to explore the shrine and the market place (usually 15 minutes). Both the shrine and market place is very crowded no matter...More

July 2011. All wonder and ancient architectural glory! This shrine is among many to see in the area, but truly stands out as one of the most remarkable!

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

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.
