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 in a rickshaw and then we saw a dozen people riding Mario carts through the streets...... go figure!

Great place for shopping, food or simply just wondering around. Friendly feel and very Tokyo. Finding parking might be a problem so if you can get here via subway or by bus.

This is about as popular a sightseeing area as it gets in Tokyo. You’ve got the Sesnsoji Temple at the end of Kaminarimon Gate. Walking through the gate towards the temple you get all the souvenir shopping you can possibly need. Everything from magnets to T-shirts to Japanese dog sweaters (yes, we got some for our doggies) are available on this street. Note that souvenirs actually get cheaper the closer you get to the temple. We saw the same T-shirts sell for $1400 close to the gate to about $900 closer to the temple. Take the Asakusa line and exit A18. Hang left when you exit the subway and you will see the gate with the giant lantern.

This is an awesome mix of different shops and market stalls, and some excellent gifts and momentos. You can find everything from a fridge magnet and chopsticks through to paintings and samurai swords. There is lots to see and lots to look at here, and if you are a good shopper you can find a good bargain. I bought a beautiful painting here. Towards the back is the shrine. This was actually closing / shut by the time we got here as we arrived at the market late afternoon, so I would suggest perhaps aiming to get here at Midday and walking around until you have had your fill. It's on the Sky Bus line so you can always hop on and take yourself elsewhere if it isn't your cup of tea.
