The Asakusa Culture and Tourism Center is a distinctive seven-level building in Asakusa, directly opposite the famous Kaminarimon Gate of Sensoji Temple.

The Culture and Tourism Center is designed by famed architect Kengo Kuma and has a free observation deck and cafe on the 7th floor, with great views of Sensoji and Tokyo Skytree. It’s even made our list of top spots for a view of Tokyo.

On the ground floor is an information center with English-speaking staff.
