The place was so crowded but that just made it all the more enjoyable walking up and down the shopping promenade and tasting the various foods from the Asakusa region

Take your time strolling around the area . See the street food and souvenir vendor's counters both side of the "promenade" leading to the shrines and temples , don't neglect the small alleys adjecent to the promenade , and visit the Asakusa Culture and Tourism center with its 8th floor observation bar and terrace , and if you are into kitchenware shopping - Kappabashi "kitchen town" is waiting for you at a walking distance (see separate reviews).
Have a lovely day here .

A huge temple to visit surrounded by interesting stalls selling gifts and food. The temple is surrounded by beautiful gardens and the atmosphere of hustle and bustle should be experienced on any visit to Tokyo.

This place is a must go to attraction in Japan. There is plenty of street food and other markets to buy stuff from. There is a gaint temple at the end of the street to visit as well.

This is one of my must-see areas of Tokyo. Amazing temples, good shopping, plenty of places to eat and loads of good people watching. Arrive early and take your time to enjoy it!
