“A must see!”
Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

This temple is easy to get to and costs nothing when you get there!

There are many temples on site but the largest of them is quite a sight! The gardens are lovely too and I came in the winter!!!

Around the temple there are LOTS of things to buy and I felt you could look at your leisure without pressure to buy!

Go and soak the atmosphere in!

“Wonderful place to stock up on gifts”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

The open market is very large and stocked with tons of colourful, locally-made gift items. Also some very interesting items to look at such as wigs that are worn with kimono, face masks etc.

“Nice neighbourhood”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

I loved Asakusa, it's a quiet neighbourhood. The most I liked to wander at dusk. The Taito Kannon Temple at night is a lovely as in the day light. Near the temple there are some small streets where I spotted some good kaiten-sushi. There's a street full of shops settin homewares, and I regret I didn't buy a couple of Japanese kitchen kinves there. so, I'd better come back there one more!

“Top Tokyo Tourist site + tips”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Sensoji Temple in Asakusa is almost featured in every travel brochure to Japan. Because everyone wants to take a picture in front of the Thunder Gate (with the lamp).

It is advisable to get there early, there are multiple lines which can reach Asakusa station, from time to time there are English interpreter there to help the tourists.

Enjoy ! Who knows you might be able to find a bargain in one of the stalls there !
