Asakusa viewpoint & information
Go up the Asakusa Culture Tourist Information Center
The Asakusa Culture Tourist Information Center is located in front of Kaminari-mon at the Sensoji Temple in Asakusa. Take the elevator to the top for some of the best views in Asakusa.
On the 8th floor the Center has a small cafe and a terrace. You can have a coffee, a beer, or some Japanese sweets here while you enjoy the view. This is a good place to rest and plan a visit of the Asakusa area.
On one side you have the view across Sumidagawa River with Tokyo Skytree and the golden Asahi Breweries headquarters building. On the other side is Sensoji Temple, with Nakamise Street stretching out from Kaminarimon Gate towards Hozomon Gate and the Main Hall. On the street in front of the center is a special parking spot for rickshaws.
If you want to look at the city from higher up, Tokyo Skytree is only a 20 minute walk from here or 2-3 minutes by train.
