Great place to walk around for an hour or so. See the Temple, watch the people then check out the many tourist shopping places in the area. Don't forget the ice cream!

Asakusa is one of my most favourite places in Japan. There are so many beautiful temples, food, and other cultural attractions. You can't go wrong when you visit this place.

From the sonso-ji temple to the copius street markets, this central area near the Asakusa Ginza station is a good half day well-spent. Also within walking distance is the Skytree.

A busy stop in Tokyo, particularly on weekends, for people wanting to visit the nearby Shrine, Bell Tower, shops and restaurants. If it wasn't for the Shrine and Tower, it would be just another shopping area.

Asakusa is one of Tokyo's districts, but it has an old world charm not seen in the other more modern districts in the city. We were there to visit the Sensoji temple, a Buddhist temple that was apparently built in the 7th century. The streets...More

When you picture a Japanese city scene, this is what comes to mind. Temples, shops, restaurants. Everything you want to get a taste of Tokyo.

Maybe a bit of a let down after Inari shrine but still a place worth a visit. As in many places you can avoid the crowds by walking a bit further. Make sure you pay a visit to the Monkey Park for a great view...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.
