The place is beautiful but not very peaceful. The place was very crowded, but it was interesting to see all the shops and people watch for a bit.

We visited this shrine two times when we stayed in Asakusa. One time (for some reason) the lights were off and it really created an awesome atmosphere and contrast to the next day when it was fully lit up in all it's glory. It's surrounded...More

A great place to visit in Tokyo. Make sure to spare time to visit it, at least from the main road through Nakamise street until Kaminarimon Gate. Lots of shops to see there. Better come earlier in the morning because it can get overcrowded, even...More

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

You can take JR Yamanote line from Harajuku to Ueno and transfer to Tokyo Metro Ginza line and alight at Asakusa station. The journey should be around 45 minutes.
