What a fabulous place for a western tourist! Hustle and bustle. Food and drink. Shops and more shops. A fantastic shrine! A must see but bring your yen for shopping on the temple grounds. Yes it is touristy but so what, it's worth it.

I specially arranged for a night stay at Asakusa so that I can have more time to explore the shrine and street food. I was there during Golden week and the crowd was beyond my imagination. Basically I felt being shoved along until I reached...More

We were lucky, or not, to visit during Golden Week, when the whole area was thronging with thousands of locals. All shops were busy, the temple was flooded, the restaurants packed. It was exciting to share the festivities in this interesting area.

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
