One of the more traditional areas in Tokyo, this made a change from skyscrapers and huge billboards. We were lucky enough to be in the area for Sanja Matsuri, one of the major festivals of the year. The atmosphere was wonderful and there were many...More

This site is packed by tourists, and also has shopping and restaurants nearby. If you're on a short visit and want one historical site, this might be the one to choose.

Easy to get to by subway. The main pedestrian street is lined with shops selling Japanese culinary treats, souvenirs, and Japanese handicrafts. The atmosphere is fun with young couples dressing up in traditional costumes for the visit.

grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at

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