The shrine was busy and bustling when we visited. The pedestrian streets leading to the shrine are lined with souvenir shops and are very crowded. The shrine itself is interesting, as is the five-story pagoda. We spent about 20 minutes at the shrine and felt...More

The architecture of this place is traditional and spectacular. There are paintings on the roof in the main shrine that are worth inspecting. The downside of this place is that there are to many tourists. If you do not like crowds I would not recommend...More

This Shrine is very well known so it's crowded, but you get to see many people dressed in Kimono. It is a Holy place, so not so exciting but very traditional to see what old Japan might have been like. The outlying area is filled...More

Beautiful shrine, easily accessed via the metro. You can try lots of different foods whilst walking around the shrine. It's a bit of a shame that there is so many souvenir shops, as it kinda ruins the feel of the place. Very crowded, but still...More

The place was amazing. Lots of souvenirs available. It's better to have a bigger budget for the souvenirs. But don't worry, no entrance fee. Love the Japan-style fortune reading for 100 yen only.

A very open temple complex where you can observe the local people practicing their faith....with many in traditional dress. A fascinating place to visit

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
