First time in Tokyo

very colourful, busy, buzzing with life, tourists, food, smells of incense and noise of the big symbol drum in the temple bringing it all to a climax

I loved this Shrine, I found it just right behind market on Sunday, I never thought I will find Sunday market.

It could be described as slightly hidden, but it is easy to find. It has the quiet beauty you like to see in a shrine. I thought it was a welcome spot of beauty and peace in Kuramae.

This is just a very small shrine in the Kuramae area but it is beautiful. Not overly commercialized like the bigger shrines and temples. You can get the feeling that it is used by locals.

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
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 sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
