There is a lovely, although pricey, cafe on the top floor of the tourist centre. From here you'll be able to see straight down the souvenir shopping mall (Nakamise-dori) and get a birds eye view of the Thunder Gate/iconic red lantern.

This place is a nice rest stop after touring the Asakusa area. It also offers a lot of information for tourists about Tokyo. The biggest draw though is the view from the top floor with no charge for entrance.

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
