    Avoid the crowds and come at night! It was very empty, and there is enough light to still capture the temple.

    Tourist place with a Shinto shrine just after a walk through souvenir stalls. Expect crowds, smiles. Positive experience as we knew it's a very popular place (especially weekends/holidays)

    go in the evening, particularly if it's summer - less crowded, more beautiful, and much cooler!

    Overcrowded with tourists. Also they hosting huge festival Sanja Matsuri in the middle of May, it's three days of madness with two millions of religious people around, don't miss it.

    Super crowded with tourists, but a nice place to visit. Interesting to have such a huge temple in the middle of so many buildings.

    I was sad to learn that this building is a rebuilt model of the original, which was destroyed in WW2, but the architecture is still gorgeous and the tourist bits worthy of a visit on their own merit.

    Stunning. I'd recommend visiting the surrounding grounds as well, as they are just as beautiful.

    Beautiful temple compound and gardens in Asakusa. Nice juxtaposition w. Tokyo Tower looming in the background. Very crowded with tourists.

    Arrive early, avoid the crowds and have breakfast in the food stands. Avoid the crab one, it's just crab substitute.

    It's beautiful, but crowded during peak hours. If crowds are an issue, go early in the morning.

    Super busy, lots of tourists, closed Monday. Easy subway ride from multiple areas. If you go here also consider the Sky Tree and Sumida Park.
