“Worth visiting but there are better places”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

It's a temple! Not really my cup of tea but it is quite nice. It reminded me of Blackpool - one thing worth seeing surrounded by trashy shops trying to take the tourists yen from them.

Interesting, if you can't find anything else to do.

“Worth Seeing”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Asakusa is one of the best temples to see in Tokyo however because of this there are a lot of tourists. If youre not going to Kyoto it is worth a look. However, if youve already visited Kyoto or plan on it, Asakusa could be skipped.

“Tradition and modernity side by side”

Nice and pleasant place as it has both the traditional side of japanese society and the typical modernity. Easy access via public transport and great variety of restaurants. Also, there is a bulding specially for tourism information.

“Loved wandering around this place”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

My daughters and I loved spending time here. Great shopping in the alley ways and side streets. Loads of friendly and helpful people and just a relaxing place to go despite lots of people around. Heaps of places to eat as well with a wide variety of choices. Deserves an afternoon here.
