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.

It's free. You can go up to enjoy Tokyo Skyline and it's just two blocks away from Hilton. Just walk straight on and it can be identified with a somewhat "H"-shaped building

Close to subway so easy to find (although we found it thanks to our guide) and it gives a good view from the top. Being a govt building its free to go up and if you can ignore the tacky giftshop at the top it is worth a visit

the tow tall towers here are ideal for affording stunning views of Tokyo. You can see Mount Fuji from the towers.

This is easily the worst observation deck I have ever visited. The deck is inside, with large windows. However, there isn't a very good view of the skyline. Furthermore, since you are inside and the room is well-lit, taking a picture is nearly impossible unless you wish to see your reflection within the picture. Overall, I was very disappointed and...

We visited on a Sunday and chose to go up the South tower. Staff were so friendly and helpful in directing us to lifts etc. At the top there were amazing views, each wall had almost ceiling to floor windows with a different view of the city. We took some excellent panorama pictures when we were there. On clear days... More
