From the Tokyo Metro Ginza line Asakusa Station (exit 2)(浅草駅）, it is a 1-minute walk to the front of the Kaminari-gate (雷門) and Asakusa Tourist Information Center (浅草文化観光センター). The Building looks as if it is made with shoji screens.
In this area, there are many traditional buildings mixed in with modern designs.
The tourist center uses a concept of “find-show-support,” making it the perfect starting point for Asakusa tourism.
It is open from 9:00a.m. to 8:00p.m. There is a terrace with a panoramic view that is open until 10:00p.m.

I am happy to tell you that all of this is free of charge!
Take a break and experience the panoramic terrace view!
The panoramic terrace on the top floor of the building is a little unusual but it is a suitable resting place when you are tired.
Even if you do not need a rest, I highly recommend that you visit the terrace to take in the beautiful panoramic view. Among other things, you can see Nakamise Street and the Sensoji Temple. And you have an especially good view of the sky tree. It looks so close from the terrace. You will be overwhelmed by its size.
From the terrace view, you will be able to look at your Asakusa tour destination for the day.
Also on the same floor, there is a glass-fronted café & bar (open from 10:00a.m. to 8:00p.m.) with all sorts of items at affordable prices including lunch, desserts, and alcoholic drinks.
An international tourist destination that will provide unique memories!
Asakusa is an international tourist destination. So when you go there you will, of course see a lot of Japanese visitors. But it is also filled with visitors from abroad. You will see many foreign tourists in Asakusa, especially at the Asakusa cultural tourism Center.
It offers its services in 4 languages including English and Chinese.
While here preparing for your long-awaited trip through Asakusa, you will be surrounded by other tourists from around the world. It is a good opportunity to try some intercultural communication and take some souvenir photos with your new friends.
