The English speaking staff person spent plenty of time with us. They gave us little tips on extra things to see and free tickets to see the Amuse Museum.

We stopped here during an airport change. Our first place was the visitor center. We got a map, used the restroom, and looked out at the area from the observation deck... They were very helpful. Couldn't ask for more.

As soon as we exited the Akakusa subway station, we went to this tourist information center. The staff there was very helpful. Spoke excellent English and gave us a map marking places they felt we might want to see in the area. Would highly recommend a visitor use their services. They are across the street from the subway station.

I went here last July 2014. The staff was very accomodating. Also, they asked me to go in the roof top to see a very nice view of Asakusa. It was an amazing experience.

Amazing views over Senso-ji temple complex from roof cafe viewing point. Marvellous building made to blend in with the Shitamachi area but with modern materials. VERY helpful tourist information staff.
