Buy some lunch from the nearby convenience store and go to the observation floor here. It isn't air conditioned but it was shaded. You have a good view over Asakusa.

Liked the great view of Sensoji and Skytree from the top floor. There are toilets but they are located at the basement. There are English speaking staff too. We joined the free Asakusa tour on Sunday and the guide who spoke in English was very nice and professional.

Bought a Grutto Pass for the museums and zoos here. $2000 and includes free entry to many places. The observation deck on the top floor was quiet and you can see the sunset, Sensoji and Sky Tree from here.

Nice architecture, impressive building. There is a viewing area at the top of the building, with a small cafe as well. Not bad for a quick free visit, although would be nice if there was more effort made with the cafe, considering the wonderful location.

This is a great place to stop and get a fix on everything and make your plans. The coffee shop on the roof has a beautiful view. Take the elevator to the roof and bring a camera and your wifi device. Close to many restaurants, the metro, sightseeing and shopping.

Helpful staff and a nice place to stop off and learn about the area, but main attraction for me was the building. Unique and modern, it's a captivating building and space inside.

The guide welcomed me straight away in English and gave me a lot of information on the surrounding area including several maps and tourist guides! Go here if you want to find out more on what to do in Asakusa!

It's a special design building and the best its free observation view. Take the lift to 8th floor, there's also a cafe there. Had a nice view of the layout of Asakusa and Sky tree.

The architecture of this building is so unique that you can't missed it. It's situated just opposite the Kaminarimon. After a long walk around Asakusa, we came here to rest our legs. There's a cafe at the top floor of the building. You can find clean toilets at the basement. For those who would like to know more about Asakusa... More

We only spotted that there was a free viewing platform on the top floor by accident. There is also a small café. Great views around the local area. Not many western visitors discovered it as most references are small and not in English but really offers another perspective on the area.
