A very open temple complex where you can observe the local people practicing their faith....with many in traditional dress. A fascinating place to visit

Very crowded but also very interesting as it is still a religious place. Must be seen if you are in Tokyo...and it's all free.

Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.

alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
