First time we went up the south and had an amazing view of all the skyscrapers of Tokyo and a few parks, then right in the distance you can see a large mountain range which is in the direction of Mount Fuji.

I enjoyed the third observatory more than the first observatory - it's a short drive away once you're up on the mountain.
We get to see beautiful lake and the reflections of the mountain and clouds on the lake.
It is sunny with cool breeze, complete with the blue lake, blue sky, green grass... just love it.
The view at the lookout is absolutely stunning especially in a clear blue sky.

I can highly recommend visiting here for an unique peaceful open-air sunset; you can go to the highest view-point (Sky Tree) but there will be crowds and queues.
Located on the 52nd floor of a incredibly beautiful building, a ticket purchase allows one to explore an important museum followed up by a panoramic view of Tokyo - where the sea of huge buildings and city lights...

We planned to see the sunset on the observatory, but due to the fog, we couldn't, but we were still able to see the night view of Nagasaki area!
Depending at the time of year this transition from dusk to night can take minutes to hours so please come prepared with the right amount of clothes, snacks and drinks, the alcoholic kind is acceptable as well as d...

Access: From the Tozai Subway Line's Maruyama Koen Station, follow the exit signs to the bus terminal, take bus 14 (JR Hokkaido Bus - Maru 14) to Okurayama Kyogijo Iriguchi bus stop (10 minutes, 210 yen, 2 buses p...
There's a chairlift alongside and the view from the top was great.
Many trails lead off to different view points from the top, but beware the paths become less and less developed the further you get on from the base.
There's many spots after the main view point, high recommended to go further.

It is located above Tochomae Station (on the Toei Oedo line), or is a comfortable 10 minute walk from Shinjuku Station (all other train lines including JR, Keio, Seibu, Odakyu and other subway lines).
What made it great was the informative and interesting display about the upcoming Olympic games on the first floor, as well as the unique souvenir shop on the observation deck (we went back a couple of times becau...

The Airport is easy to navigate and has one of the most important things to get while visiting japan PORTABLE WIFI! Thats right, make sure you rent a portable WiFi for your stay, it's a life saver for directions a...
... the tallest; but it strikes that perfect balance of affording you a nice 360 view of Tokyo; at a height where you can still appreciate the city's detailed architecture without the need for high-tech equipment.
Seaside Top and Sky Tree are at opposite ends of Tokyo while Tokyo Tower is 1km back towards central Tokyo compared to Seaside Top.

The scenery around this observatory was really stunning (for a city girl like me at least).
Observatory over Shiretoko
Excellent views from the top, especially a fantastic view of Mt Fuji (again, another good reason to go early, the sun is in the right direction) as the day I went was a clear, cloudless, blue sky day!
The view from the Tokyo Skytree which you can see from the height of 450 meters(approx 2000 feet) is superb both during the day and night.in the evening the Tokyo Skytree is beautifully lighted

Set right near Tennoji Station, you can travel to floor 16F for free and get pretty good views of the city from the rooftop garden.
Our tip would be to grab a few pastries/cheese cake/Belgium chocs and eat them as you climb the escalators all way up to 9th/10thth floor when you can get a nice chai latte to wash it down with before continuing u...

This is part of the Umeda sky building and well worth the entrance fee for the superb views both from the inside observation floor and the outdoor rooftop observation deck.

It's located at the east end of the Odori Park, a grassy green boulevard with fountains and statues bisecting the northern part of the city from east to west.
We had spectacular views of the snow festival at Odori Park and city right right out to the mountains on our trip up to the top of the tower.

I loved being able to see the Pacific Ocean and the East China Sea.
Take the ferry from Kurihama to the Chibata Prefecture, hike up to the entrance to the cable car and enjoy the ride and fantastic views.
When you arrive, you can take in the view from the observation deck.

There is free Wifi and a couple of restaurants and coffee shops where you can spend a more leisurely time enjoying the view.
You could have a great view (mountain and sea view) of Kobe at 24th floor of this building.

One tip on parking : I parked the car at Chionji Temple for JPY600 which is about 5 min walk to the Viewland tram station.
Took the chairlift up as the monorail operates only every 20 mins (and takes only 40pax each time) while the chairlift is constantly running so you don’t waste time waiting.

A 360° view, you can see the Goryokaku fort where an important battle happened during the end of the Edo period. 2 statues of Hijikata Toshizo, if you are fan of the Shinsengumi, this is the place to visit!
There's anyway for your reference and pictures a very well made fortress model displayed in the observatory level.

At the foot of the mountain is Nihonji Temple founded in 725 A.D. The highlight is Nihon-ji Daibutsu, Japan's largest ancient Buddha stone statue sitting in a lotus position, is 31.5 meters tall in total.
On the day I visited part of the areas were closed so I only get to see the big Buddha statute, the Goddess of Mercy statute and some smaller shrines between the rocks along the trail.

But most Tokyo’s buildings are short, then it makes Shibuya sky a fantastic place for a 360 C viewing.
Less known if compared to Tokyo Sky tree, Tokyo Tower or other similar Buildings.
