Asakusa is by far the best part of Tokyo that we have experienced. Lots of small pedestrian streets with small shop, geishas and cyclo rickshaws. Just wonderful and easy to get to other parts of Tokyo with metro.

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

Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
