The visit to the top floor for fantastic views of the city and Mount Fuji is a must! Miss it and weep! :)

Fantastic sky scraper views. Shop and restaurant at the top, well worth a visit and about 2 minutes walk from the Hilton Hotel. Gift shop was excellent vfm. It was easy to find and quick to get in - a quick bag check and short q. Well worth making effort if in the area.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building doesn't really require a lengthy review. Basically, all you need to know is that it offers a 360 degree view of Tokyo from 202 meters (660 feet) above ground free of charge and that view is spectacular! In fact, I would say this is an unmissable attraction when in Tokyo.

Loved the 360° view of Tokyo. Entry is free, no fee. I recommend to go there around sunset time. If there is no fog, you might be lucky enough to get to see Mt Fuji (Fuji-san)!

plus it's free. The entrance is a bit hard to find. Very short line up. The souvenir shop at the ground level is very small, however, provides good selections of items such as bookmarks at very reasonable price.

First grab some maps (free!) from the ground floor tourism center and then get up to the observation decks (free!) to get your bearings straight for your visit.

Great view of Tokyo and free of charge. Very nice alternative if you dont want to go to Tokyo SkyTree. You can go to nearby park after and it is very nice to stroll in Shinjuku, as the streets are almost empty (if you came when everyone is at work).

Excellent stunning view of Tokyo and admission is free. Open both day and evening. Absolutely worth a visit. It is nice to visit one viewpoint to see Tokyo by night and Another by daytime.

You can go at the 45th floor for free and enjoy a beautiful view of the city, until 11 pm. There you can find an elegant restaurant and an interesting shop too.
