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.

We stayed in a Hostel in Asakusa and the location was perfect. Close to great restaurants and shops.

Of the places we visited in Tokyo, this was one of my favorites. It seemed really crowded to me, but our tour guide said it was a quiet day. Wow, I'd hate to see it when it was busy. Upon entering the road to the famous Sensoji Shrine, you walk between stalls selling various foods and souvenirs. I noted people dressed in kimonos, which I learned was a 'touristy' thing to do (we did not). Before getting to the Shrine be sure to waft yourself in the smoke from the burning incense, it is supposed to take away your aches and pains. Everything was interesting and very traditional at the Shrine. This is a 'don't miss' experience.
