Access Map from Asakusa Station(s)

There are five stations in Asakusa, but it is "Asakusa line Asakusa station" (浅草線浅草駅) when you access to / from Narita International airport.
If you arrive in Tokyo station from other cities in Japan, then "Tsukuba Express Asakusa station"(つくばエキスプレス浅草駅) will be the most convenient.

  Welcome to Japan! In order to help you get out to our hostel we've included this picture guide. Unlike the west, in Japan most streets don't have any name, so direction must usually be given in relation to buildings, landmarks, etc. The route might seem a bit confusing at first but it's the fastest and easiest way to reach us.

Enjoy stretching your legs after the long flight, take a look at the shops along Nakamise-dori, and enjoy the beauty of Sensoji along the walk to the hostel. If you get lost, feel free to ask a nearby Japanese person for help – the people in Asakusa are known for their friendliness.
Directions from Asakusa Line Asakusa Station - takes about 11 minutes
