You can either walk around 20 minutes to Tokyo Sky Tree or take a train to just one station away, Oshiage Station (Asakusa Line).

Tokyo Sky tree is the world’s highest communication tower (and Japan’s highest structure). You can buy a ticket to the observatory deck to get widest view of Tokyo.

From Asakusa or Oshiage, you can make your way to Ueno Station (Ginza Line). In spring, it is famous to walk around Ueno Park for Sakura viewing. One of the famous spots in Ueno is Ameyoko Street. You can find almost anything here, from groceries and fresh seafood to branded items.

For Muslim, you can walk to As-Salam Mosque, near OkachiMachi station as well. Nearby, you can book a spot for Halal Yakiniku Panga to enjoy wagyu for your dinner. Or maybe just try Halal Kebab at Ameyoko street.
