The oldest shrine in Tokyo is really worth a visit. Best to go early as it gets quite crowded. The Geisha girls love having their photo taken. :)

Asakusa is probably on the top of most everyone's list who visits Tokyo because of the history and the beautiful structures. Easily accessible via Tokyo Metro from Ueno or Tokyo Station, you will be rewarded with sites of buildings and structures from 1300 years ago....More

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.

You can take JR Yamanote line from Harajuku to Ueno and transfer to Tokyo Metro Ginza line and alight at Asakusa station. The journey should be around 45 minutes.
