Asakusa is definitely a must visit area if you're planning to go to Tokyo. The temple is a little busy but has a great atmosphere. The markets are definitely a great place to visit for food stands (ice cream, rice crackers, taiyaki, shaved ice, etc.) as well as decent priced souvenirs for friends and family. My dad ended up bulk buying ¥500 boxes of mochi and daifuku which he had to carry around while we walked around the area and also later in Odaiba which we went to via river boat cruise.

another temple and a very large one but, not really worth the trouble of going to, its not the most beautiful,, it has the feeling and look of disney land, if you like to be stuck in a slow moving mass of people then this is the place for you,

Been to Tokyo many times for leisure & work and always ensure I make a trip to Asakusa. Sensoji temple and the beautiful stalls lining along the path make the place unique and special.
You can also see Skytree from Asakusa.

Beautiful temple with surrounding grounds to explore. Lots to see and do here; one end is the temple with cool areas surrounding the main building which few people seem to check out. Have a walk around the outside of the main building to find lots of interested things to look at. Walking away from the temple you will find shopping. The only downfall is that it's really touristy with bus loads of people here so it was very crowded, don't let that deter you though.
