    Spent a lovely couple of hours visiting the Shrine and walking through beautiful forest in the centre of Tokyo. Very peaceful, calming and relaxing.

    Need to take some walk to see around the full garden. It's nice to visit during the summer everyone is out reading and laying down on green grass away from the busy center. The garden look beautiful with Roses and big old trees.

    Always worth the visit. This place is very far from our place in Yokohama, but it is always a very good idea to visit Asakusa. Lots of things to see and do. Lots of souvenirs to shop. :-)

    Well worth a trip - lovely exhibition, amazing building. I spent around 3 hours looking at the various displays. Truly fascinating and gives a great understanding of the Edo period.

    Staff were fantastic.

    I visited in October 2019...just never wrote the review.

    After my earlier visit to Naga Meguro I went to Ueno Park to view the blooming cherry blossoms over there. Ueno Park is quite famous for the huge amounts of cherry blossom trees.
    However I always have the idea that the whole of Tokyo is going to Ueno Park. This time sitting below the trees was not allowed though because of COVID, so everybody was strolling through the park.
    Nevertheless Ueno Park maintains to be a great spot to see the blooming cherry trees. Especially the small walking road across the pond is something not to be missed. I really love this track with left and right beautiful cherry trees.
    For a first-time blossom tree visitor in Japan I really advice this park to get started.

    Great overview of Japanese history. Worth visiting. Doesn’t take long to walk through, but can take as long as you want. I enjoyed the displays of Kimonos and armor.

    Well preserved. Beautiful. Inspiring. Nice walk among the shrines. People making offerings and praying. Surrounded by a bustling city, it’s a respite to rest here and take in the experience.

    Pricey, but worth it for really rather amazing views even on a day with some cloud. Worth going a bit before sunset to get the daylight and nighttime experience.

    Just a train away from Tokyo is this island district Odaiba for all your amusement needs.
    The fan favorite Gundam Cafe with the giant Robot showcasing it skills is a must visit.
    The whole island gives you a western world vibe, even remember seeing a Liberty Statue replica.
    If on a tight schedule can be avoided for experiencing other unique places Japan has to offer especially if you are from Western World.
    Visisted Oct 2018.

    The current 'Another Energy' exhibition of female artists is excellent and well worth a visit.

    Be aware that (contrary to information in my travel guide) entry for the City View is not included in gallery entry. The hordes of staff were not able to answer my question in English when I arrived on whether it was possible to buy a ticket for both, and I ended up just getting a ticket for the exhibition. As I enjoyed this I didn't particularly mind, but clarity would be welcome. And there are way too many helpful people shepherding you around the building!

    Walked a good 30min or so from Nishiazabu. We didn't go up the tower (since it was getting late) but walked around the base of the Tower. Was still a really nice walk. No regrets. Viewing the tower from the base was pretty impressive in itself. Will definitely go up next time I'm in Tokyo.

    Blue sky and clear which spells a nice view to Mount Fuji. Follow the signs to observatory, make sure line up for the observatory elevator. There is a quick check for bags and backpacks. You go up 47 floors and the view is magnificent. There’s a souvenir and coffee shop. No time limit so spend as much time as you want. Attraction is free.
