We used the Info Centre on our previous visit but I hadn't reviewed it. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and had a large range of information available.

Like most info centre they are there to help you and direct you where you want to go and what you want to see. Go upstairs and you will see the newest Tokyo Sky Tower right in front of you. And there is café upstairs in open air enclosure and you can view all around from the top.

It doesn't take long to visit the information center and it is a good place to pick up some materials on the city. There is also a currency exchange located in lobby, which is perfect if you around the area on the weekends when the banks are closed.

Informative and strategically located across the Asakusa Sanmon gate. Nice "kami" portable shrines on exhibit , head up to the 4th floor to get a view of nakamise-dori.

We didn't actually need any assistance, and literally just came here to make use of the views from the rooftop, which were amazing. You can see out to the tower in one direction, and have views over Asakusa & the shrine from the other. A worthy 30mins or so & completely free to visit.

Definitely worth a visit. Perfectly located within the area of Asakusa with lots of attractions such as the Sensoji temple, Kaminarimon gate and not too far from the Tokyo sky tree. There is easy to access from metro stations (literally across the road) and the building itself stands out with its modern glass design. Upon entering you have the option... More

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.

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.
