I was going to this building for project work at client place last year. It's a super duper property with all types of facilities especially for corporate office.

There is a space on the top of building for nice views of the city and its free. But the best view you get is actually from the Italian restaurant on the 52 floor. The service and food are also great, but no menu only in Japanese.

There are some nice restaurants in this building but as a tourist attraction, there is nothing much to see.

Used to love this building 20 years ago for high-rise food. It's feeling a bit older now and there are newer options nearby such as Opera City which feel a bit nicer.

The view from the Shinjuku Sumitomo building is well worth seeing. Take the very comfortably fast elevator to the 51st floor! it is free.

A moribund looking office block that has outstanding restaurants on levels 49 upwards. During our 4 day stay in Tokyo, we went there twice - to Banya (level 49, near the restrooms - signs are in Japanese) and to Mon Cher Ton Ton (level 52)

Sake and Japanese cuisine. Absolutely fantastic! The staff make an effort to speak English but it's 100% Japanese. The food is delicious, I recommend the sashimi! The selection of sakes and drinks is wide and wonderful. The views over the city are fantastic.
