If you're facing the large red lantern at Kaminarimon (Thunder Gate) - the outer gate of Sensoji Temple - turn completely around and you will see the Info Center.

This place is just across the street of Asakusa temple street. Not a very big building . On the top floor you can see the whole temple shopping street and even the skytree . View is fantastic !

The building it's really beautiful, full of great information. Amazing view from the Café floor 7F. In hour case, we had checked out of our hotel and it was a nice place to enjoy the view and rest before heading to the airport. Metro is 2 blocks away.

English fluency in Japan is scarce. Ladies at the balcony have great fluency and knowledge of not only Asakusa area but Tokyo as a whole.

Gave us good advice relating to taxis, trains, sightseeing. Good spot for sunset photos from the observatory on top of the building. The cafe there is not too impressive. Staff spoke good English and offered very good advice.
