We chose this area because it was the oldest area in Tokyo. We aren’t “big city “ people. We traveled all over Tokyo by subway and were very happy to return “home”. We have never been to Japan before and were so impressed. We will...More

Stay Asakusa to avoid noise and experience traditional Japan rather than the busy Shinjuku area. It is ideal as one can reach Asakusa direct from Haneda airport without changing metro line or station. Asakusa Station, Tawaramachi Station make Asakusa connected to almost every where in...More

It is the best place to experience Japanese culture in Tokyo. Market around Senso-ji is fun to explore.

A cool spot if you can fit the outing into your time in Tokyo. The vendors and shrine make for an immersive experience.

Asakusa is good for food in terms of their restaurants and provides many quaint temples and houses Senso-ji as one of their most popular sights.

This is where you can find the spirit of the old EDO (former name for Tokyo). It is also very touristy, but has a lot more charme than the busy Shinjuku/Shibuya areas.

Went to this place around and the place is getting dark. The temple looks amazing when it's nite time. Well heard from my friend that it's always crowded during morning and noon. There are many shops and eateries with the vicinity. Must visit !!

This place will always come up in travel guides for Tokyo. You'll understand why when you get there. Expect it to be crowded. The shops leading to the temple have everything from souvenirs, quirky items and FOOD! I held off on buying anything apart from...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

Lots of restaurants and little bars open, but definitely quieter at night. The temple is beautiful at night when the lights are on.

Mid range hotel sharing double ¥7000-8000. Food per person per meal ¥ 500-700. Trains ¥ 500-1000 per person per day. Entrance fees ¥ 1000-2000 per person per day. I'd say 200 USD per 2 persons per day. I follow the golden... More
