This tourist center was very, very helpful since many attractions, transportation and restaurants do not have any English translations! Superb staff! Thank you!

We found the staff at this center incredibly helpful. Language was no problem as several of the folks providing assistance spoke fluent English. We were given pointers on must see sights as well as general directions for navigating the area...including transportation. Maps, brochures and even tickets for a Geisha performance the next day. Another benefit of the center is the... 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.

Get the free Tokyo Tourist guide which in my mind is the best guide to greater Tokyo having compared lots of other info. This guide offers discounts in many museums and parks once you show it to the ticket offices. You need 4 things in Tokyo (as a tourist): 1. A Pasmo or Suica card to use metros and trains... More

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. It's about 6-7 stories tall with unique looking vertical "slats" on the outside of the building. Great place to take the elevator to the rooftop and take in the view. Not... More

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 !
