You can go up to the 45th floor and see the view, and it's free! There is also a restaurant if you'd like to grab a bite to eat.

The view from the observatory is really amazing, you will really enjoy getting at the top of the building, there is a restaurant for dinning as well.

Free observation deck on 45th floor. You can see all of metro Tokyo for free including Mt. Fuji. Great observation windows to be able to see 360 degrees of downtown Tokyo.

Tower is not to difficult to find with minimal waiting times. Not that exiting for the view but being for free worth it if in the area. If you had limited time I would give it a miss.

WOW what an amazing view of almost all of Tokyo. Make sure you go at night and then again during the day because its like two different events. Its not just the view thats amazing but the building is also worth some time very cool modern building. And its all free.

You get a great view of the city from the free observation decks! We got to the observation deck about a half hour before the sun was setting so we stayed to see the sunset, it was really nice. You can see (though small) Mt. Fuji as well. We visited Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka. If you're visiting all 3 places,... More

The two observation decks at the 45th level of the Tokyo Metropolitan Office north and south buildings are worth visiting to get a bird's eye view of the city. Best of all of course is that there is no admission charges! They operate different hours with only one open at night. But obviously getting a day panoramic view and a... More

Well worth the trip, it is free so why wouldnt you!!! The observation decks offer amazing views of Tokyo. There are many large clean windows for viewing. There is also a bar where you can purchase a beer for $7AUD (expensive for Tokyo but not for any Ausy). Probably the best place (view wise) to sit for a beer that... More

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.
