A shrine right beside senso-ji temple! Both are very well-preserved. The shrine is less crowded as compared to senso-ji and definitely worth visiting as well!

Aside from the Senso-ji temple, the Asakusa Shrine is the main centerpiece of the Asakusa District of Tokyo. Both pilgrims and tourist convene in this place for both spiritual and sightseeing.

Asakusa shrine is a very huge shrine , and the area around this is full of shops, which are the main attractions . Visit the shrine in the morning and then look around the place.

This will definitely be featured in your Tokyo sightseeing tour. A place to explore and see Japanese culture and local foods. Historically temple and modern avenues. May be a tourist trap but absolutely busy, happening and great sight to behold.

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

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.
