A good example of a traditional shrine in the Edo era part of Tokyo. Everything around here is styled around how things would have been way back when. The vendors offering hot, sweet rice wine are not to be passed by. Do give it a try, especially when it's cold! It's very sweet and warming. Different to sake of anything I've tasted before. The little moon cakes are red bean filled and are delicious. Made in an old style machine, which of course is part of the charm!
Very crowded and nothing very different from others shrines, i like this because is one of the oldest but you can go to another shrine and their are way more awsome
Beautiful shine with both Shinto as well as Buddhist shrines. It does get very crowded. Many shops as you enter there are a few gems to be found.
Interesting Buildings and surrounded by street-long shops and food stalls. Very crowded, but must be visited when you are in Tokyo!
Part of the Sensoji Temple complex. So do not be confused. Sensoji Temple is a Buddhist temple while Asakusa Shrine is a Shinto shrine. Compare and contrast the differences, including their altars. No phototaking of the altars (out of respect for their religion/way of life). Souvenirs, snacks and drinks available for sale just outside the shrine. There was a live performance while I was there too. Drew up quite a crowd. Japanese acoustic band singing Japanese classical songs. Many elderly Japanese folks were pretty impressed, so it must have been good.
