“Great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Great place to view during the sunset and night when the lights are on everywhere. There is no time restriction to how long you can spend up at the tower and it is well worth the money to go up.
Much better views than an observatory tower in Tokyo

“Sit Back, Have A Beer With A Great View Of Fuji And Tokyo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

It is very similar to many big buildings around the world, they all dazzle you with how fast the elevator travels and when you get to the top you go wow what a view. I always enjoy the view no matter where in the world. The viewing area up the top is very spacious with plenty of room, there is a lovely cafe up there serving cold frosty beer with a great view of Fuji and the Alps. What could be better sitting against the window with the concrete jungle leading up to Fuji.
I was there on a clear winter day offering great views of Fuji and Tokyo and beyond, on a hazy day I would say postpone the trip up because you will not get the full magnitude of the concrete jungle below.
There are also a few shops/stalls up the top and you can have a caricature drawn up for you as you sit - Excellent artists!
There was little to no line to get up the top but I have heard it can get busy, probably not as busy as the Skytree though.
Well worth it on a clear day.

“A big building”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Not too much to complain about, but it really is just a big building. The view from the top in a clear day is worth the effort, as long as the wait isn't too long. It's in a great area though, so no need to fell badly if it disappoints. There is lots and lots of other stuff right there.

“Great Views and easy to get to”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

I liked the fact that it was inexpensive to go to the top and you were rewarded with great views. It is very easy to get to from Yokohama Station. There are ample resteraunts in the vicinity. The whole area is an entertainment precint.
