Culture, Craft, Regional Produce2017.05.15

With so many sightseeing spots, wherever you go in Tokyo you’ll have fun. If you are sightseeing and only have a limited time, you may have trouble choosing where to go though. Therefore, this time we would like to introduce recommended spots with a focus on Asakusa and Ueno, which are fairly near to the "Tokyo Skytree", the highest tower in the world, and allow you to experience both the old and modern culture of Edo/Tokyo, as well currently talked-about items that are carefully crafted by artisans. Please enjoy the feel of the big city of Tokyo, which even now overflows with a downtown mood!

Asakusa

  • Kaminarimon, Senso-ji Temple

  • Sanja Matsuri
     

  • Senso-ji & Tokyo Skytree

The first place that comes to mind when thinking of the most famous spots in Tokyo is Senso-ji, a temple famous for its Kaminarimon gate. At the adjacent Asakusa Shrine, the "Sanja Matsuri", where many mikoshi shrines are paraded around, is held every year for 3 days including the third Sunday of May. Please experience this lively festival that allows you to feel the excitement of downtown! From Senso-ji Temple and nearby Sumida River, the view of the Tokyo Skytree when illuminated is simply wonderful!

Ueno

  • The National Museum of Western Art

  • Ameyoko
     

  • Shinobazu Pond

If you get off at Ueno station, spread out immediately to its west is Ueno Park, home of many cultural facilities such as various museums. Ueno Park is a very famous cherry blossom viewing spot yet is also a place where you can see Shinobazu Pond which is filled with lotus flowers. A total of around 400 different kinds of 3000 animals are kept at Ueno Zoo, the oldest zoo in Japan. After leisurely enjoying Ueno Zoo, we recommend going to the shopping street "Ameyoko" which follows along the JT train tracks. After enjoying Ueno, how about going on over to the 634 meter high Tokyo Skytree, which allows you to overlook Tokyo from a very high position, and enjoying a view of the city at night?! Asakusa is located west of Tokyo Skytree, right next to the Sumida River, and 2 kilometers beyond there is Ueno - try to find them!
