“Really helpful, friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

Well worth while calling in to get maps of the local area and advice about things to see and do. Several of the staff spoke good English - got a good tip about getting a day pass for the local community buses to get around - a good way to get to Yanaka, going through some interesting neighbourhoods, and quite cheap too.

“Helpful pit stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

This clean cultural center has free bathrooms and computers (supposedly free wifi as well, but I couldn't get it to work). The women on the front desk spoke good English and gave us good info about how to get to other destinations. We took the free tour, and although our volunteer guide was very sweet, his accent was difficult to decipher. Still, we learned interesting things about the temple and shrine.
