Crowded to walk in and out. See shrine at end of walk. Stall sell souvenir and food. But sell food cannot eat along the street to shrine. Might as well don't sell food to make it more pure

There are plenty of shops here for tourists located around the famous Senso Ji Temple! It’s a busy area full of tourists but definitely worthwhile the visit!

A good place to stay in Tokyo, nice atmosphere and everything you want/need is there without being hectic. Also good for a (half)day trip if you are in Tokyo.

If you don't want to deal with a stampede of tourists, go early on a weekday. Walk around and find hidden gems.

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

Lots of restaurants and little bars open, but definitely quieter at night. The temple is beautiful at night when the lights are on.

Airport Limousine from Haneda (4 Replies)
Hello, my family is travelling to tokyo next year, and will b arriving @ Haneda around 9pm. Will like to use the airport Limousine for a comfortable ride to our stay, but I can't seem to find any stops near Ueno/Asakusa.. Can any TA advise? Planning to visit Sensoji etc and travel to Disneyland the 2nd day, so will like to stay somewhere near asakusa for easy access. Thanks!!

Response fromShibuyakko|
The airport limo bus doesn't serve Ueno/Asakusa area. The easiest way to get to Asakusa is to take the Keikyu Line. Most trains go to Asakusa directly but sometimes you have to change trains at Sengakuji. This transfer is very easy--just wait for the next train at the same platform. Asakusa might not be the best location for you because it's not convenient to Disney.

I plan to visit Odaiba from Asakusa by ferry... I wonder, is there any pass or deal that I can get (which cost less) instead buying the ferry and yurikamome pass separately?

>>Check out the Hama garden adjacent and off to Ginza, check out the sony buidling and do some shopping or maybe just browse from what i've head about prices. Thinking about seeing the imperial palace while here, is it close enough? Back to the Hama Garden to take the Sumida River Cruise to Asakusa, check out the Senso-Ji temple. Back to Shinjuku,<< I might suggest you to head to Asakusa by boat after visiting the Hama Rikyu Garden, then backtrack to Kanda by Metro Ginza Line...More
