I seriously think this place is overrated; if you want to find the most impolite Japanese, you can come to Asakusa where people are tired of tourists.

Asakusa is worth checking out for 2-3 hours. We visited the Sensoji Temple and wandered around the shopping market near Nakamise street. The vendors all sell the same stuff but it's a nice break from the madness of Shibuya.

This is a shopping area as well as a great place for pictures where a Buddist Temple and Shinto Shrine exist side by side. I loved that! Make sure to use a 100 coin to shake a stick out of the container and get your...More

A must see for first-timers in Tokyo! Lots of things, places, colors and food! Bring your walking shoes as this place is very big, if you plan on seeing everything.

The best time to visit is early in the morning. No crowds and you can feel the history and religious importance.

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.
