Located just at the entrance of Nakamise shopping street, it is a great stop if only for the terrace table commands a great view over Senso-ji. Not to be missed

Very front of Kaminarimon, it's nice place to ask where you should go in Asakusa. Multilingual guide will teach you advice and can get maps or leaflets of Must-See places. 浅草雷門の目の前にある観光案内所。 語学堪能なスタッフが、観光名所の行き方を教えてくれたり、地図やパンフレットをもらえます。 上層階には展示コーナーやシアターも。

The staff speak English and are friendly and helpful. I would recommend going there soon after arriving in Asakusa. You can also get rickshaw ride just outside the building. There are a few companies that operate from that area.

A good place to look for information as staff speaks English. We went there to ask about money changers and was directed to a Travelex inside the building. The staff also suggested we go to the eighth floor for the view which has free access....More

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
