Tall building in central Tokyo lift whisks you to 42nd floor and if its clear you can see Mount Fuji and many other sights from the top. Going early on a Saturday meant no queue and easy to get to the front for photos.

Our local friend took us here as it was a free way to see the city from above. We went on the most clear day and had a beautiful view of Mt Fuji.

Worth seeing, as it offers a panoramic view, however, Sky Tree or Tokyo Towers offer better ones. Anyway, it is nice see it even from below, as it is huge.

Forget about the observation decks that charge '000's of Yen - these free observation decks are the way forward. Both towers have cafe & gift shops, and the evening tower has a restaurant / bar. Great views across Tokyo, and can see all the way to Mt Fuji on a clear day. And the fact that these are free makes... More

The building is easily accessible and opens till late at night. We had a great time enjoying the view and some souvenir shopping! The weather though was a little foggy, we had fun anyways. The best part is.. no entrance fee required :)

Took a trip to the 45th floor to get a birds eye view of the city. Its free and beside a subway station so easy to get to. Great all round views and you can eat in the canteens if you are there around lunch times. Well worth a visit

There is no need for a queue. Fantastic view from the tower even in rainy/cold weather cause it's warm and comfortable inside. There's also some shopping you can do.

Going to the viewing floor is free and therefore makes this a worthwhile visit. On a good clear day the view will be amazing, when we went it was a bit cloudy by it was still nice.

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.
