The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings are a great option for visitors who wish to see the sprawling expanse of Tokyo and maybe a peek at Mount Fugi for free! Arrive early (opens at 9am) and get whisked to the observation floor for a breathtaking view of Tokyo spreading out in all directions.

Most good views come at a price but this one is completely free! We went at night time and it was quite a good view but could have been better if it was darker inside the room.

We walked 15 mins-20 mins from Shinjuku station. Went up to North observatory as the South observatory was closed at 530pm. No entrance fee. Took a elevator to 45th floor for the view.

Free entry and no queue. Great view. Full of locals so that tells me its not a tourist trap. It was a bit hazy the day we visited but on a clear day you can see Mt Fuji from the south tower.

One of the best places to go to if you're not willing to fork out 2000yen for Tokyo Skytree but still get a good view of this amazing metropolitan. Be sure to pop by if you're in the Shinjuku area.
