We felt it was most fortunate that the hotel for our first stay in Tokyo was located in the neighborhood of Asakusa. It is somewhat different from the rest of the city. It has a plethora of old buildings several temples, historic sites but alao...More

If you don't want to deal with a stampede of tourists, go early on a weekday. Walk around and find hidden gems.

We went here as part of a private walking tour. Our guide was able to explain quite a lot about the buildings, area, and history that we otherwise would not have known. I believe Asakusa would have been much less interesting to us without this,...More

Asakusa is really convenient for Narita airport having its own station with a direct train connection which takes around 50 minutes. The temple and several hotels all within 10 minutes walking distance. Train timetables are difficult to find on line from Asakusa but they are...More

The temple itself isn’t the most beautiful or historical impressive as temples in the Kyoto area. But that’s just my personal opinion. But something changes when it gets dark. The atmosphere, the lighting and the ‘rest’ what comes over this temple at night is... impressive!

Very easy to navigate to and from. Lots to see including Skytree and Senso-ji Temple. Great restaurant and street food.

Being a top tourist attraction, the place is expectedly crowded. The area has a temple, many shops, many restaurants, stores selling souvenir items and street food. Easily accesible by train.

Our rickshaw tour was an amazing experience. We enjoyed our tour in the old town of Asakusa with Teppet, as our driver. It's a must when you visit Tokyo!

Just walking around Asakusa (a-sock-sa, not like a-sa-ku-sa like I was pronouncing it >_<) was wonderful. The place was lively at all hours during the morning to early evening. Shops close between 5 and 8pm near Senso-Ji Temple so go there early if you want...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.
