This is the place to come if you want to get your fill of touristy Japan. Amazing views of the Skytree and the Golden Turd (Asahi monument), hundreds of small shops selling everything from Samurai weaponry, fans, sake sets, chopsticks and green tea icecream. Sensoji...More

Asakusa is wonderful. It’s of course a lot off tourists but heading away from the main streets you can find hidden little gems. There are nice restaurants around.

Near the part and temple, there is elder part of town which is now full of restaurants and people; worth visting, either in crowded market place or more silent streets/restaurants

My wife and I visited this place as part of a day tour of Tokyo. It was very crowded as it is a very popular tourist attraction.

There are so many prefectures in Tokyo to visit and we did quite a few but I highly recommend Asakusa for its unique blend of old and new. It’s busy but relaxed if that makes sense. We saw a Japanese wedding ceremony, a bridal couple...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.
