Asakusa Culture Tourist Information Center

Tourist Information in Asakusa & Sumida River

This ward-run TIC, in a building designed by Kengo Kuma, has lots of info on Asakusa and Ueno, and a Pia ticket counter (for purchasing tickets to concerts and shows).

There's a free observatory terrace on the 8th floor. Events are sometimes held here, including geisha dances and craft-making demonstrations.
