This was my first stop when reaching Asakusa. It had clean bathroom facilities and very nice people offering help or tourist info. There was a little observation deck attached to a cafe that gave great views of Asakusa shrine, the skytree and the asahi beer tower with the iconic gold logo on it.

The building looks very special. The panoramic view from 8F is nice. 建築物的造型十分特別,樓頂的觀景台可以看到整條的仲見世通(包含了頭尾的雷門和淺草寺),跟在底下逛有不同的感受。

The big drawcard for me was the beautiful views of Asakusa from the Center's seventh floor. It's free to enter, so there's no reason not to pop in while walking past to get some great views of the river, the Senso-Ji temple and the surrounding area.

I wanted some information on Kappabashi St. and they were very helpful with information. Also needed to get postage stamps for a postcard and they told me that the 7/11 around the corner sold stamps. Unusual building, nice Architecture.

Good idea to go there first when you visit Tokyo. We talked about an hour to an incredibly helpful lady who advised us what to see, and what to skip for now. We got some good maps. A major shrine, the Asakusa, is very near, which is definitely worth seeing (but does have a lot of booths selling the usual... More

Well worth while calling in to get maps of the local area and advice about things to see and do. Several of the staff spoke good English - got a good tip about getting a day pass for the local community buses to get around - a good way to get to Yanaka, going through some interesting neighbourhoods, and quite...
