Asakusa Shrine, Taito

(4.3/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
Unlike most buildings in the area, Asakusa Shrine survived the Tokyo air raids in 1945 and remained one of the most popular Shinto shrines in the city. Built in 1649, the temple features the gongen-zukuri architectural style, in which the worship hall and the main sanctuary form a shape resembling the letter H. The temple, also called the "Shrine of the Three Gods," was designated an Important Cultural Property in 1951 due to its historic and cultural importance. Put Asakusa Shrine and other Tokyo attractions into our Tokyo trip itinerary builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • My grandson and I loved this spot. Good for people watching and a special insight into the beliefs of locals. While it was packed it was still enjoyable. A must see place.  more »

  • Asakusa Shrine is probably one of the several temples that you must visit in Tokyo. It's truly an interesting place to visit and the experience is quite amazing. There are food shops along the way to the main temple, souvenirs, local desserts and many more. By visiting this place, you get to experience the japanese culture in a different way and enjoy the great environment around specially on the weekends. It was very busy at the time of our visit but it was a definitely well worth the trip to see such an ancient building.
  • This Shinto temple was a oasis of peace among the crazy market. Beautiful tradition worth keeping it alive.
  • Worth the visit when in Tokyo! You're unlikely to visit when it isn't packed though!

  • 3/18 when you visit the nokyo limited-sho award, a column of more than 100 people had. Recently, this matrix is everywhere, like come on behalf also of nokyo-sho. It was a stamp collecting style. Still, nine is a bit too much.
