There is an excellent range of types of places to eat here, lots of good bars, not too loud. I found it to be very safe. I have been a couple of times over the years and would visit again.

Its a bit of a tourist trap but well worth visiting - early morning is best before the crowds arrive. The site is impressive and the narrow streets full of tourist shops well worth exploring. There is a great little knife making shop - making...More

The Asakusa shrine is very nice, but crowded at the Weekends. Around it, you find a great variety of Shopping booths and also many good Food places.

Would recommend coming here when in Tokyo. There is plenty to see and do. The Senso-Ji temple and pagoda are worth visiting. The shopping street leading to the temple is quite good as well. Be prepared for being there with thousands of others.

Very popular and touristy but still worth your time to visit. I suggest skipping the Nakamise and head to the temple first and on your way back do your shopping.

This temple is popular and stayed in the city. Many tourist came and take pictures, shopping and pray. Many tradition before we entered the temple. We must cleand our hand and mouth by water in the hut. And shopping street was interesting. Must visit.

It's a fun place to browse and taking the water bus was nice b/c it allows you to see the city from a different vantage point. The water bus is pretty inexpensive way to travel on the water. The area of Asakusa we walked around...More

Entering at the big lantern is quite the photo opportunity. As you walk through to get to the shrine the street is lined with souvenir shops and food. Try the fresh fried rice snacks and the cremia soft serve ice cream, they were both excellent....More

The old amongst the new, this is a must visit on any trip to Tokyo. The sight of historical temples beautifully preserved sitting against the backdrop of Tokyo's skyscrapers (and one of the best views of Tokyo Skytree) defines the meaning of a picture being...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.
