A neat area to visit while on a layover in Tokyo, a direct train ride from the haneda airport cost ¥620 during my visit (one way). During my visit the area was very crowded, an felt very touristy. Many small shops were open though many sold the same items. Prices appeared to be surprisingly high also.

To visit and admire the beautiful temple, I recommend to visit at night, where there are less crowd of people, you can take a picture at the best moment. Just 3 minutes walk from Asakusa Station (Subway), lots of restaurant nearby so please enjoy.

I visited Tokyo about 20 years ago during the winter and had vague memories of Askausa and the surrounding temples, so it was on my list of places to see upon my return visit 20 years later. Because of the crowds, i visited the place first thing Sunday morning where I had good fortune to missing the crowds that I remembered 20 years earlier. The temples are very nice to just marvel at the architecture. There are many tourist shops in the markets.

If you are visitng Tokyo for the first time, do pencil in a visit to Asakusa. There are a lot of Edo-era shops lining up along Nakamise street and you can see a lot of kimono clad tourists walking around. It feels like you are transported to the Edo era ! Try explore along the off street away from the main street and there will still be some interesting shops to explore.
