The Asakusa Shrine (Shinto) is hidden behind the Asakusa Temple (Buddhist) and is worth a visit as it is a good example of a Shinto Shrine. You can also enjoy the many other sights in the Asakusa area.

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.
