Asakusa Station is served by the following lines.
There is a connecting passage from the Tobu station to the Tokyo Metro Station, and a connecting passage from the Tokyo Metro Station to the Toei Station. However, there is no direct connecting passage from the Toei Station to the Tobu station, passengers wishing to transfer between the two stations have to walk at street level.
The Tobu Railway terminal is a surface station that occupies a portion of the Matsuya Department Store.
The station is used by local and limited express trains. Although Asakusa is the most "central" terminal of the Isesaki Line, it is connected to the next major terminal, Kita-Senju Station, by a length of track with sharp curves, beginning with the first stretch leaving the station, where trains have to turn 90 degrees to the right at a maximum speed of 15 km/h to cross the Sumida River. In part due to the station's somewhat awkward location, many express and semi-express services on the Skytree Line run through Kita-Senju to the Tokyo Metro Hanzomon Line and Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line rather than continue to Asakusa.

Today's Tokyo Metro Asakusa Station was one of the first underground stations in Japan, opening on 30 December 1927 as the eastern terminal of the Tokyo Underground Railway to Ueno, which was later extended to become the Tokyo Metro Ginza Line.
The Tobu Railway terminal opened on 25 May 1931 as Asakusa Kaminarimon Station (浅草雷門駅). This was renamed "Asakusa Station" on 1 October 1945.
