We stayed in Asakusa for five days and loved the neighborhood. It is a bit of a hike from the airport, although the subway serves it directly, but it was worth the trouble. Many interesting shops, temples and restaurants. More authentic-feeling than other Tokyo neighborhoods.

Place was crowded with not much to do there. Aside from the shrine which was close to the public. People were mostly taking selfies. Several stalls nearby selling Knick knacks and snacks.

If you want to find "traditional Japan" within Tokyo, Asakusa is certainly the place to go. The Sensoji temple that dates back to the 7th century is the biggest attraction in this area. I also found that hotel rooms seem a bit bigger here, especially...More

A busy place teeming with locals and tourists. The centre of town where the temple is is super congested, hard to appreciate the surrounds due to the crowds. Asakusa presents some different shopping in comparison to Tokyo city centre and is far more touristy.

Just love the vibrant ambience! The smell, smoke, people, shops, and restaurants. It's crowded, yet it's quite.

Area of Sensoji temples, nightlife and Tokyo Sky Tree. It's very convenient to stay for short to long period.

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old

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

Lots of restaurants and little bars open, but definitely quieter at night. The temple is beautiful at night when the lights are on.
