The area
Address
Neighborhood: Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants, bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art galleries.

Loved going up to take in the view from the top. On a clear day you can see Mt.Fuji. Really liked the view from here as you can see Tokyo Tower, Sky Tree, Olympic Stadium and of course Mt. Fuji. On a nice day, spend the extra 500 Yen and go to the outdoor roof top. One of the few places you can go outside and not have glass.

No view & 'no camera' policy!?
Jul 2021
Very disappointed with my visit to "Tokyo City View". At the bottom level, I was helped by a member of staff to buy a ticket to the City View (up on the 52nd floor) from a ticket machine. I was holding a small digital camera throughout this transaction. As soon as I got to the top, I scanned my ticket, and immediately the staff members became agitated that I was holding my digital camera. I was approached by two staff members who tried to explain (in Japanese and via a sign) that I could take pictures with a smartphone, but not a digital camera (try and find the logic in that). I was very confused also as I was looking for the Tokyo city view but I seemed to be in an exhibition gallery. I proceeded around several dark areas of the 'DC Comic Book' exhibition, still searching for the view! I was then approached by another member of staff who could speak English. She explained that "business photography" was not allowed. It was then clarified that this was only in relation to the exhibition. I WAS allowed to take pictures of the view with my camera! It slowly dawned on me that I was in the viewing area, but most of it was taken up by the exhibition - many of the windows were even blacked out to make the exhibition more atmospheric. I also found out that the open-air Sky Deck was closed. Unfortunately the weather was so poor on the day I went that the view wasn't even visible - all I could see were clouds! So basically, it was 2,500 yen wasted. No view, no Sky Deck, and just a stupid exhibition.
Here's some points - why didn't the staff at the bottom level explain that: 1) using a digital camera in the exhibition was not permitted, even when I was clearly holding a digital camera, 2) that the Sky Deck was closed, and 3) that the visibility was so poor I wouldn't actually see the view from the top. Had I known that information, I wouldn't have gone up!
Honestly, I wouldn't bother going here. It seems to be a glorified exhibition area rather than a proper viewing deck. If you want a good view of Tokyo, I'd recommend the Tokyo Sky Tree - it was a lot nicer that this crummy place.

We paid the extra money to go to the top level and have the audio guide. The afternoon / evening we went it was overcast, but still the views were fantastic. Its worth the extra money to go to the top level.

Great views at a reasonable price!

There are great views to be had from the Observation deck of the Mori Building. We were in Japan at a relatively quiet period and had no issue getting a ticket or going up. It seems to be significantly less busy and less expensive than the Skytree and is a much nicer experience. Pre-booking is available and probably worthwhile in busier times.

The combined tickets with the Mori Art Museum are almost the same price and we wanted to see the museum too, so a comparative bargain!

There’s a place to sit and make a coffee from beans - an over-engineered coffee but a bit of fun!

Thoroughly recommend.

Well worth it for the views and the museum

Although Google Maps is not the greatest at getting you there, it’s worth the extra steps (if you go wrong).

Amazing views of the city, the exhibition was interesting and the coffee house concept was cool too.

Buying the ticket here just is so convenient and saves time. I highly recommend this method. The observatory is a must see on your trip to Tokyo. Come before sunset to capture the beauty and then stick around for shots of the skyline at night.

The BEST view of all of Tokyo
Sep 2019
If you can only go to one location to see the skyline of Tokyo, then this is the place. Relatively cheap tickets to get, the night view or day view is amazing.

If you are lucky, you get to see cool exhibit, when I went, it was a Pixar exhibit and a Shiota Chiharus exhibition

Magnificent view!

Enjoyed viewing the science museum especially people's concepts of future cities. The train museum was fascinating as well. Finally, it was great to see the city of Tokyo (including Mt Fuji) from this high perspective.
