Top ways to experience Asakusa Culture Tourist Information Center
The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

it is located just opposite the main entrance leading to Sensoji temple. a good place to start as you can get some information on the ground floor and get a nice view from the 8th floor. can see the main shopping street as well as sky tree from up there. there is a small cafe serving tea/coffee and cakes. good place also to use the restroom before exploring other parts of Asakusa. the train station also in just just across the street.

There is a lift to get you to the 7th floor. The view is quite nice. We went up at night so everything was lit up and we could see the nearest large temple and the Tokyo tower as well. It's free, so what's not to like if you happen to be going past?!

Normally, people will just walk towards the Nakamise Shopping Street and miss the information center across the street. However, it's a good place to go when you are tired / hot. There is a cafe inside and the observation deck can have a very nice view of the whole area. Good for photographer.

This tourist info centre is just opposite the main entrance leading to Sensoji temple. We bought our unlimited day pass from here. It was quite well stocked with brochures and well staffed. Go to the observation deck on the top floor to enjoy great views of Sensoji temple and the surroundings. Its free.

Located near Asakusa metro station and Nakamise dori, this building will catch your eye with it's unique exterior design. Unfortunately, there was a big renovation going on when I visited so I didn't get to witness it in all its glory.

When you walk in through the front doors, there's information desk with English speaking staff that can help you out. There are also many free brochures with information about the surrounding area. In my eyes the more interesting parts of the building are located in the top floor. There's a cafe and a free observation deck. The observation deck offers a 8th floor view of Nakamise street, Senso-ji temple & pagoda and also Tokyo Skytree on the other side.

This tourist information center really stands out and the free observation deck comes in as a cool little bonus. Top floor is easily accessible via elevator.

Here you have a top-view of the shopping street and a good view of the Tokyo sky tower. Entrance is free. There is a restaurant on the roof deck.

This unique building is designed by Prof Kengo Kuma, the renowned architect who designed the new National Stadium for Tokyo Olympics 2020. It is around the corner of the Asakusa Station and has 8 floors with the ground floor for information and the top floor - viewing deck.
We headed up to the top floor Observation Deck for a nice view of Tokyo Skytree, Asahi Golden Flame and Sumida River from one side and Kaminarimon, Nakamise Street and Snesoji Temple on the other side. As it was raining, we were able to stop for shelter and toilet break before heading to Nakamise street.

We booked our slots via peatix.com. We got dressed in kimono and Japanese socks. Class was light and easy. Ended with a solo dance performance.

After the class we went to level 7 to take photos of Asakusa with Tokyo Skytree view.

Overall a good experience for my girls.
