nice view and FREE

The view is good but the transport might be an issue. However, the sightseeing tower is free, so, no complain.

The view is simply spectacular! We had a joyful time trying to identify the tall buildings, cities sites that we have been and spotted the lovely home that we stayed in. Views are great for photography!

It used to be the highest building in Tokyo, around 90's, but not anymore. The highest building and observatory deck is skytree, around 450 meter, whilst this building is 200 meter. However visit to the observatory here is free.

You get up to the observation decks by taking an elevator and it's quite easy to go there. You can catch a great view over large parts of Tokyo! For free!!

Was a little foggy when we went up, but still lovely views. Not as tall as the Tkyo Sky Tower, so if u want amazing views, go there.

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.
