With beautiful kimono wearing tourists, tourists carried by rickshaws, and souvenir shops full of buyers, this is the place to be, Asakusa! One can even get their fortunes foretold for a few yen! The shrine itself gives you wonderment about what life must've been for...More

As though the place was not fascinating enough, was also lucky to be part of a wedding here. The bride, groom and all members of the wedding party were in their traditional dresses. It will always be a memorable day.

Photo opps at the front gate to the temple. The temple itself was average. It was crowded mostly with tourists, but manageable on a week day.

This is definitely must see in Tokyo. Like traveling through time zones. We loved it! So much to see, learn, taste and experience at this place.

This is the oldest neighborhood in tokyo we saw. It's a change from the high paced new neighborhoods of shinuya, Shinjuku and ginza. More locals. Lots of supermarkets with local prices.

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old

Lots of restaurants and little bars open, but definitely quieter at night. The temple is beautiful at night when the lights are on.
