Very impressive views from the 45th floor! And free! Definitely recommended. Don't plan on spending a great deal of time here, but it is certainly worth making a trip to.

Pretty good view of Tokyo (that's free) and neat architecture. Lots of moving sidewalks to get back to the train station.

OK views from the top, especially at night. Only get the really good view if you pay to go in the restaurant, but going to the top floor is free. Nice to look back over the water, Haneda airport and downtown.

Great view (try to time it for a non-cloudy day and you should be able to see Mt Fuji). The viewing galleries themselves though (one in the east tower and one in the west) are drab, dated and smell of damp. Go for the view, not the exhibits. Finally a free high tower view though (they are a rare occurrence... More

Really well organised. Bags are searched on the way in (because this is a Government building), but you take a direct elevator up to floor 45. It is a credit to the Japanese Government for providing this service to tourists for free (there aren't that many countries who would do this and it must cost them to provide it). There... More

Easy to find, easy to get in, easy to get to the top, fine views if the weather is ok! There is a gift shop at the top with a lot of toys and trinkets, and a restaurant, it's quite a nice little place. Not much else nearby apart from a small park.

The view on top was superb. I highly recommend this. It's even free! We're able to see Mt Fuji, and many other landmarks. It's a must for anyone visiting Tokyo.

Great view overlooking all of Tokyo - it's free as well so that is good - well organised - queues are a bit long but it moves quite quickly

Staying in Shinjuku

Neighborhood Profile
Shinjuku
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
