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.

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.

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.
