I was staying really close to the temple, so was lucky to visit it as a first attraction. It is very pretty :)

It seems that Sensoji is the first thing to come to mind when it comes to Asakusa. There certainly is much more! My recommendation is to start at the Asakusa Culture and Tourism Center that sits right across the road from the Kaminarimon Gate, where...More

We stopped here as part of our tour. It's a very good looking temple which I believe has been restored . There are a lot of people including both locals and tourists. There's a purification fountain which is well used and a burning barrel in...More

While the temple area was bustling with people, I did not feel overwhelmed. The buildings are spectacular. We each had our fortunes told which was fun. We were able to do some souvenir shopping and grabbed an ice cream cone. Clean and ample restrooms

I have been to Tokyo many times and have taken others there sightseeing as well. Asakusa is always on my list of places to visit. Try the rickshaw rides. A little expensive but worth it. Very informative

Area is close to Skytree and is a beautiful temple but several streets offer some outstanding locations for shopping and food. Must do Day for trip to Tokyo

Asakusa was such an amazing adventure for me. I had the best time running around all over the place. Sure, it's super crowded and always full of locals and tourists but that's what makes this place so alive. Asakusa has been reconstructed so it's like...More

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

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