The staff at the Asakusa Culture Tourist Information office are wonderful. They are multi-lingual, and seemingly can answer every possible question. The office has lots of free materials, including good maps.

Head to the top floor viewing platform and enjoy a coffee while watching all the people shopping on the Asakusa shopping street. A great place to take a few moments to enjoy your time in Tokyo, people watch and plan your next route.

we walked into the place to get information and was immediately attended by an English speaking staff. She gave a few maps and invited us to attend a Shamisen workshop. A shamisen is a traditional Japanese three-stringed lute with a square body, played with a large plectrum. We came back after 1 hour to see the performance and later we... More

Staff speaks several languages which is a huge help to tourists. Go to the top floor where there is an observation deck with an amazing view of Tokyo Skytree.

Worth a trip to the top of the information centre to get a birds eye view over the temple. You also get a nice district view including the Asahi beer building (with the yellow coloured glass) and the large gold "flame" too. Free of charge..

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
