We left the Conrad hotel early in the morning via the subway and then a second visit via the boat tour. The first visit we arrived about 8:15 am and that was prefect. No tours wandering about yet and even though the shopping stalls were not open for sales we loved the solitude and being able to look at the... More

Fun to feel authentic Japan - kimono dressed girls, rickshaws, streetfood. Easy and safe to walk around for families too.

I've been here many times and can say that it is a really nice shrine / temple. Unfortunately, the area is packed that at times, it is barely possible to get through to the shrine itself. Nevertheless, if you're in Tokyo / Asakusa, it is probably a must see. Happy travelling.

The long street leading up to the temple is full of interesting shops selling food and all sort of goods. The temple's is rich in history. It is especially interesting to see the locals in traditional costumes.

it is another must see in Tokyo. It is a beautiful temple. In its surroundings one will find present day famous architects works and a hectic typical japanese goods shopping area.

It was indeed very crowded when we got here, Jan 4, because of the temple visit of the locals. In spite of the crowd, it was still very fun to visit Asakusa. We really had fun strolling each street we pass by and grab a bite. It's like everything you need is within reach. I highly recommend Asakusa as A... More

You can't come to Tokyo and not visit Asakusa! Everywhere you look is a photo op. It's a really beautiful part of the city.

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
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 sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
