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

We stumbled across this after visiting the temple. It was a nice peaceful place to visit, right in the middle of a busy area.

I intentionally visited the shrine - accidentally ended up in a giant market place. The shrine itself is lovely and we walked from Skytree to here (keep in mind we think anything under 5k is a reasonable walk). There were lots of women in traditional...More

Entering Asakusa Shrine give the feeling of holy place. You enter three gates from wood and than you come to the shrine which is nice and quiete.

Wet weather forced a change in our itinerary. So off to Asakusa we headed. This area is such a difference to Shinjuku - where we were staying. Asakusa is ‘old worldly’ ... how Tokyo used to be in the past. Wandering through Nakamise street and...More

We found it actually by wandering around Ueno Park. There is a little alley that leads to the shrine and it had various food vendors along the way to the shrine. Great find and great way to try out some Japanese street food.

It was a very lively area with markets, souvenirs and a very large temple but it was extremely crowded; you have to almost push through the crowd as the walking area is very narrow. Overall worth a brief visit but it might be more enjoyable...More

We visited in early April-- -and enjoyed seeing this temple and the entire area. This is the oldest temple in Tokyo, apparently--- and there is good information available at this site on the history.

This is a shrine in honour of those men who established the temple. Tori gates mark the entrance to the shrine. Can easily be missed if one is all focused on the temple.

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.
