Although this shrine is not as elaborate as the many other shrines in Tokyo, this shrine is amazing on its own. Its a local shrine that people do pray at and it felt more authentic than the major ones as it is not all commercialized and surrounded by shops and people trying to sell you things.

I was lucky enough to be staying in Asakusa in early June, when there was a festival at Torigoe Shrine. There were celebrations at the shrine and surrounding streets.

Many buildings were decorated with paper lanterns and flowers,... More

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood Profile
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 sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
