The guide welcomed me straight away in English and gave me a lot of information on the surrounding area including several maps and tourist guides! Go here if you want to find out more on what to do in Asakusa!

“Free Observation View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

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.

“Beautiful building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

The architecture of this building is so unique that you can't missed it. It's situated just opposite the Kaminarimon. After a long walk around Asakusa, we came here to rest our legs. There's a cafe at the top floor of the building. You can find clean toilets at the basement. For those who would like to know more about Asakusa and the events held, there's a information counter for this purpose.

“Great free view of river, Sky Tree”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

We only spotted that there was a free viewing platform on the top floor by accident. There is also a small café. Great views around the local area. Not many western visitors discovered it as most references are small and not in English but really offers another perspective on the area.

“Great View!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

This was my first stop when reaching Asakusa. It had clean bathroom facilities and very nice people offering help or tourist info. There was a little observation deck attached to a cafe that gave great views of Asakusa shrine, the skytree and the asahi beer tower with the iconic gold logo on it.
