Richmond Hotel Premier Asakusa International offers JamLabel Shampoo from Private Lab that you will get once you check-in at the front desk. 
JamLabel is a three-in-one shampoo + bath + face wash that is doesn't include silicone or synthetic oils. 
It's a non-complex product that is great for sensitive, allergic skin.

If you would prefer to use something else, 
organic brand POLA in a small sample set is also available. 
Hair ties, bath salts, and more are also available 
so if you need anything just ask! 

Normally getting membership cards while you travel isn't on your mind, however, we truly felt this one was worth it. 
It's a free card that gives you discounts, add points, and more importantly, 
lets you push back check-out time an hour (from 11am to noon) 
free of charge (normally costs 1000yen a day)! 
The discount is 10% and can be discounted to the next stay or breakfast 
(1 point for 1 yen). 
Richmond Hotels are universal, 
so even if you don't live in Japan you can earn and redeem these benefits!

After you check-in, 
along with your room card you'll get a "welcome drink" exchange voucher. 
So go put your things down in your room and go back to the lobby area 
for a drink and take a break!

⏰Drink ticket exchange time 1pm~10pm
*Welcome drink includes 1 soft drink 
Alcohol drinks are an added fee

Room Reccomendations

🌿Premier View Triple Room🌿
Probably our favorite room✨💖 
If you want to see the most stunning view of Tokyo Skytree and 
Sensoji Temple at the same time, this is the best room! 
Room info here

🌿Corner Triple Room🌿
Although you can't see the Tokyo Skytree completely, 
the Asakusa night view is just as charming! 
The Corner Room is also relatively large, 
so if you want to stay in a more comfortable, wider room, 
this room would be a good choice.

🍻Behold the Golden Poo🍻
Asahi Super Dry Beer Hall - 10min walk
Often referred to as the "golden poo building" this Asahi Super Dry Hall
The "golden poo" is actually a golden flame designed by a French designer
that is meant to represent the Asahi Beer company.
Some people say the black building below the flame is a beer cup...
but we don't see that.
 The golden building next to it is the Asahi headquarters
If you've been out drinking in Japan,
there's a high chance you drank Asahi.

Go inside and you'll see an Asahi beer history exhibition (1st floor)
and some restaurants and popular bars (22nd floor).
But what is really worth visiting if you like trying new and limited kinds of beer
is the Asahi Craftsmanship Brewery (2nd floor).
