You can get you fortune told here. Of course this became the best place to visit after I received a very good fortune. I loved all of the shops with food and souvenirs on the way here.

This place is a great taste of Japan in the city with many economical places to stay and tons of delicious food options. Also close to the train. My group went from this area to Disney and shinjuku easily

Tokyo is a hyper-modern city. But this ancient Shinto shrine in a more traditional neighborhood is where you want to come to see Old Japan without leaving the city limits. The gigantic vermilion lanterns, pots of smoking incense and stalls crammed with crazy souvenirs make it a scene, day or night.

One of Tokyo's major sights. A bit commercial vs. the temples of Kyoto, Kamakura or Nikko but a nice stop if you don't have enough time to visit one of Japan's older capitals.

Brightly colored and crowded with people selling everthing from strange-looking snack food to folding fans, lanterns, attire and chopstick souveniers. Crowded but impressive. Oldest shrine in Tokyo, completed in 645 but did not seem very serene or spiritual when we visited - only very, very touristy.

This is a huge temple and one of the oldest in Japan. The temple itself is beautiful and interesting to visit, but the fun part is the quarter mile long street of vendors selling all kinds of food and crafts in front of the temple.

The Asakusa Shrine is a Shinto shrine that was built to honor the three men who built the Senso Ji Temple. It's located down a small street east of the Senso Ji Temple. The Japanese believe that the shrine is guarded by two stone guardian half lion half dog sculptures called the Komainu who protect it from evil. So this place isn't only for tourists but for all visitors who attended for their worship.

This is a very famous shrine in Tokyo. The shrine itself is beautiful, with the paintings on the ceilings and the statutes of the gods. Right outside the shrine, there's a dragon fountain, where it is tradition to wash your hands and drink the water with a little cup provided. The street leading up to the shrine, Nakamise Dori, has some fun shops for souvenirs and some very delicious Japanese snack stands.
