This is a large and old temple in one of the older neighborhoods in Tokyo. Its grounds are an enjoyable place to walk around. Its still a working temple with services, but its also one of the biggest tourist draws in the city. So inside the temple spiritual services go on, but outside on the grounds there are people from around the world trying to get a glimpse into Japanese spiritual life.

I go to japan every April to enjoy the Sakura cherry blossom season. And the first step is going to be here In Tokyo! I like long distance walks and freestyle photography so I will start here by the temple! and will walk and walk... So every time I will come its place is truly enjoyable! Its over crowded but its worth the visit! looking forward for the next round!

A beautiful located near Asakusa Station. Visited in the month of Jul’20 (Pandemic Month) so everything closed early and there were fewer people. Nevertheless we had a great time. The place is really beautiful and there are so many souvenir shops and many good restaurants.

Beautiful Buddhist temple in Asakusa. Right next to the Skytree observatory. Plenty of shopping. Many vendors. There are signs that say no pictures of the priests during mass. I saw several people taking pictures...very rude. Don't be rude. Enjoy the temple rituals. Our visit was before the pandemic so masks and hand sanitizers were not required.

Probably the best known temple in Tokyo this Asakusa treat is highly recommended for any Tokyo visitor. The huge lantern at the outer gate is iconic for the site, followed by Nakamise Shopping street, a market area with stalls of small vendors providing a wide variety of Japanese traditional items good for souvenirs. The temple itself is active among locals, so you can see them visiting the place for prayers. We visited around dusk and had the opportunity to see the temple both in daylight and later illuminated in the darkening evening. There isn’t much of a garden in this temple, but the buildings, including a five-store pagoda are beautiful. The area has a special atmosphere in the area unlike other parts of Tokyo I have visited. If you are into Japanese temples and gardens, you should visit Kyoto rather than Tokyo, but if you are only staying in Tokyo for a couple of days, here you can at least get a glimpse of what they are about. Visiting the temple is free of charge. In addition to subway you can get there by Sumida river cruise. Tokyo Skytree is close nearby for further excursion. There are also several restaurants next to the area, I particularly like the conveyor-belt sushi place Ganso Sushi.
