Nice information center with multilingual staff. They provided eating recommendations along with other tourist information. Free wifi stations located on premise. Free to go to the 7th floor for a view of the shrine and shopping street, plus views of Sky Tree tower. If you plans include the Shrine or shopping street, this is a good inclusion for a different...

Just a stone's throw away from Sensoji temple, this place offers a panoramic view of Asakusa and Skytree. Loads of information can be obtained here. Free internet access. Had a good time spent here to absorb the vibes of bustling Asakusa.

employees are friendly and they will find all answers to all of your questions. Limited number of brochures or printed materials. The best feature is free view platform on 8th floor. Nice view especially in the evening. They have currency exchange booth right on the first floor and it works late.

Centrally located, across Kaminarimon Shrine. Easy to access and staffed by friendly people. Had a very nice experience when I needed help. They will go out of their way to make sure the trip is exceptional.

Located opposite the entrance of Nakamise-street; this tourist information has many brochures/pamphlets, but also provides money exchange as well offers a great view of the temple from its top floor...

If you are in Asakusa, you should really stop off here for local information and nearby district maps and travel information. The staff are very professional and competent. I was surprised by their fluency in English too as it is not always the case in Japan. I was also kindly helped with a translation problem I had for a product... More

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood 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.
