There are many high buildings with great views in Tokyo, but this one makes a nice memory. Don't know what dingy old aquarium is doing down in the lobby; doesn't add anything and should be closed.

Unfortunately it had been overcast and drizzling, so the view was not as spectacular as expected. Even so, worth a visit.

I would pass on this... Since our hotel room was on the 19th floor and we had dinner on the 45th floor, felt like the view I got was over rated since I had already seen it.

It will remind you of the Eiffel Tower but is surrounded by office buildings, unlike the openness in Paris which contributes to its grandeur. On the plus side, you will also not experience the crowds like Paris. There are three train stations within walking distance and you can find it if you have a good map or use Google Maps.... More

Still the unrivaled spot to appreciate Tokyo from the height. It's not as tall as Tokyo Skytree, but it has the advantage of being located right in the heart of the city.

It was a lot of fun and made me feel like a kid all over again. Its more like a themed carnival with interactive games. And it's the only "One Piece" themed park, pretty cool.

This tower looks a lot better on pictures than in real life. The location probably got a lot to say in this matter. Unlike the Effiel tower this tower is placed amongst other buildings leaving you with the impression that its just a metal structure amongst buildings. I think its looks a lot better looking at it from a distance.... More

Not for the faint of heart, or anyone even a little bit scared of heights! I'm not remotely scared of heights and I was a little queasy looking down, and we were only half-way up. If you get up the tower, the view is remarkable! We had a full 360 view of Tokyo from halfway up the tower (definitely high... More

Staying in Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi

Neighborhood Profile
Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi
Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The neighboring area of Shinbashi is a district of much older commercial buildings and it's a great place to join 'salary men' enjoying a drink and snacks at street stalls under the railway bridges after work.
