There are a lot of things to see in Asakusa. It easy to walk around and get lost in the amount of culture there is. It is beautiful traditional Japan. I really enjoyed it.

Did not like the hustle of the tourist shops outside the temple but loved the experience of the incense burning, and prayer as one looked into the temple center area. Around the temple area seems to go back 30 years or more in time including...More

Very pretty little place and a very busy tourist area. Asakusa is more traditional Japan so it's a nice place to visit away from the big city.

I had hoped to see a little of old Japanese culture and Asakusa did not disappoint. Despite significant crowds it still managed to be very peaceful. The water fountain, shrine, and gates are definitely worth a look. I loved the statues.

A nice temple, in the hearth of Tokyo. The market street leading to it is full of interesting stuff. Also good to stroll to the Sky tree nearby.

Love this place. It is busy but full of culture. Can buy cheap souvenirs to take home as well as second hand silk kimonos for 1000 yen!!! A must have is a rickshaw ride to learn about the culture.

Built around 637AD, this is a great example of Shinto and Buddhism religions. The main shrine is beautiful and people come here from all over world to see it. There is also a purification fountain and incense burner on site to help worshippers. The multi-story...More

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.
