If you are looking for best place to stay near asakusa, you can try Enaka Asakusa Hostel. I have great and wonderful time here. I really love this place. Near from subway station and popular place. You can also enjoy Tokyo Sky Tree from the rooftop. Dont believe about this place? See review below
Enaka Asakusa Dorm
Enaka Asakusa Dorm

During my trip around Japan, I stayed in several capsule-like hostels and I can definitely say, Enaka was the best of them. The individual capsules had comfy mattresses, were well lit and even had shelves and a large locker inside, making it feel like a real room. The washing rooms were clean and full of daylight, the showers hot, the free towels large. The staff was kind and helpful, the beautifully designed common room a good place to hang out. The location was perfect, in a quiet alley right in the middle of bustling Asakusa, with Cafés and restaurants everywhere and the metro a mere five minute walk 

Day 2 In Tokyo

The route of second day in Tokyo start from Enaka Asakusa Central Hostel, so if you have another place to stay make sure to search the best route for your itinerary. Because i only share the route that i've try before.

Second day in Tokyo i will visit Tsukiji Fish Market, Shiba Park, Tokyo Tower and Tokyo Diver City.

Before go to Tsukiji Fisht Market dont eat anything. Tsukiji Fish Market have a lots of food that you must try during trip in tokyo. So make sure you have enough money to enjoy delicious food there. You can go to in the morning there before 11 Am. Its the best time to visit, or you can see tuna auction about 2AM. I dont wanna go at 2 AM here on winter. Its really cold!

I've ate some food there, here thee list 
  • Sashimi 1500 Yen
  • Matcha Ice Cream 400 Yen
  • Grilled Eel 200 Yen

Tokyo Tower is most iconic place in Tokyo. Make sure you go to there once when the first time in Japan. Its use for broadcast television and you can see arround Tokyo. This is second tallest building in Tokyo with 333 meters.
  • Tiket Observatory : 900 Yen
  • Tiket Second Observatory  : 1600 Yen
  • Tiket One Piece Museum : 3000 Yen.
One Piece Museum is new museum in Tokyo Tower. I dont go to One Piece Museum because its too expensive. So i decided to enjoy Main Obvervatory with 900 Yen ticket. You also get souvenir on the Observatory. Enjoying tokyo tower with free wifi access. (I will write about how to enjoy japan without rental wifi and still can connected to the internet soon)

Tokyo Skytree

After enjoying Tokyo Tower you can back to hostel in Asakusa and go to Tokyo Skytree. Its the tallest building in Tokyo with 634 meter. This building broadcast television like Tokyo Tower and near Asakusa. 

But, if you want to go Tokyo Skytree you need pay more expensive that Tokyo Tower. Here list ticket fare on Tokyo Skytree
  • First observatory: 2060 yen 
  • Second observatory: additional 1030 yen 
  • (an additional 40-740 yen is charged for time-specific advance reservations)
  • For foreign tourists only: 
  • Fast Skytree Single Ticket (first observatory): 3000 yen 
  • Fast Skytree Combo Ticket (first and second observatories): 4000 yen
I dont go there because Tokyo Tower more iconic that Tokyo Skytree. So i suggest you to pick Tokyo Tower if you want to save the money.

You can go with this Itinerary, but you can also custom this itinerary. I hope this itinerary will help you plan cheap tokyo trip with Tokyo Metro Subway Pass for 2 Day.

Please share this post to your friend who want to go Japan. So everyone can travel arround the world with efective budget.

After this, maybe i want to share 3 Days Itinerary in Tokyo with Tokyo Wide Pass. I hope can finished my job before write about last winter trip in Japan.
