This Shrine is even towards closing hours very crowded, but it's definitly worth a visit. The area is expansive and has outside a lot of stores and restaurants as well.

We liked the Asakusa shrine the most. Be sure to come earlier in the morning because there are a lot of people after 10a.m.

The place is beautiful but not very peaceful. The place was very crowded, but it was interesting to see all the shops and people watch for a bit.

alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping

You can take JR Yamanote line from Harajuku to Ueno and transfer to Tokyo Metro Ginza line and alight at Asakusa station. The journey should be around 45 minutes.
