The whole compound is impressive with the pagoda the cherry on top. Even with the crowds one can sense the spiritual nature of the area.

I was slightly jet-lagged during this visit but I really enjoyed the place. You can see girls dressed up in manga costumes or in kimonos. The area is lovely, like a jump in a traditional place surrounded by modernity!

This is a fun area to visit or stay. We stayed here for three nights and then moved to the Imperial Hotel. Asakusa is older, and gives you the feeling of being in Japan more than the generic downtown area. Great access to public transportation...More

I chose Asakusa for my stay without even know what kind of places it was. I didn't regret to spend my time there. There was a lot to enjoy. There was a lot of rickshaw tour everywhere, and it closes to many attractions.

This place is where you find local items such as Kimono, slippers and other Japanese made products. It has a lot of stores before you reach Senjo ji temple. Also, you can buy food such as grilled beef,chicken or pork but a little pricey. The...More

Totally overwhelmed by tourists (local and international) but once to step away from the main marketplace and into the side streets it's much nicer and less crowded. Some great boutique shops and worth wandering the backstreets to find the kitchen district for all sorts of...More

Asakusa is the district where you will find the Senso-Ji Temple. However, only a few blocks away is Kappabashi: AKA Kitchen Town, which is a fascinating district with plenty of Japanese tableware at reasonable prices.

Great area filled with sightseeing attractions and authentic restaurants - a must to visit when in Tokyo. But be prepared that it gets crowded in high season and rush hour.

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.
