“Afternoon in Askusa Tokyo”

Definetely recomended to vist

“Lovely area”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Brilliant area, still very neighbourhood like, with good restaurants and very atmospheric at night, especially around the shrine area.

“Very touristic place but the temple is nice”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

This is a highly touristic place, full of many Japenese shops proposing various items from food to toys, shoes, or souvenirs. The street going to the Temple starts by a huge red lantern and at the end,you will find the impressive hudge old Asakusa temple from the 17th Century.
It's interesting to see that despite the important touristic activity it's a place of pray for the Japanese people.

“Asakusa area and Tokyo Tree”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

A place to visit when you have the time. The senojji temple is said to be the oldest temple in Japan and gets very crowded during the days. If you visit during the night 6 pm to around 9 pm it gets quieter but the souvenir shops would be close by then.
After the temple head on the to the Tokyo sky tree which is just another train ride away on the Tobu sky tree line.
