This was our favourite place in Tokyo. Traditional and not too touristy. Something on every corner. The temple, markets and food were a highlight.

I thought it would be crowded but didn’t expect huge mobs of people. We first went over to the Asakusa Kannon Temple. You can’t go in, but supposedly if you bathe in the smoke from the burning incense, it will bring you good health. Seems...More

This what you expect of a Japanese temple. Day and night worth a visit, crowded but everybody respects one another. Near the metro, so go for it. Great neigbourhood

One of the more traditional areas in Tokyo, this made a change from skyscrapers and huge billboards. We were lucky enough to be in the area for Sanja Matsuri, one of the major festivals of the year. The atmosphere was wonderful and there were many...More

This site is packed by tourists, and also has shopping and restaurants nearby. If you're on a short visit and want one historical site, this might be the one to choose.

Ueno, Asakusa

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

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
