This is near Sensoji-temple. It is a shrine, not a temple and mush quieter and not as crowded or busy as Sensoji. What a contrast, come if you want to get away from the crowd.

A nice change from the chaos at the Senso-ji Temple which is nearby. You should note the difference between the two and educate yourself on the differences between shrines and temples. The shrine is quite a peaceful, calm place where you can relax and contemplate....More

If you are near the temple then you must visit the shrine. Lovely to walk around and soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the traditional art.

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.
