We've done views in New York, London and other cities. The views perhaps don't perhaps beat some of the others but the organisation does. It was very straightforward and simple. You ave to pay an extra jpy 500 to go to the roof but its well worth it. Photographs without glass and reflections from the roof. Not to be missed attraction.

So this is a great tower to view the city but sucks when the top is closed. Also sucks when the museum is also closed and no discounted price to adjust.

What really bugs me is the staff in the area, they guessed when Tokyo tower lit up. The third time they were right. 6:45 pm if you go see it in early October. Sunset was at 5:30 pm. Pain in the butt.

Would recommend coming later than earlier. 3 stars because the staff don't know when the main attraction comes on and for having display lights close to the windows (some areas bad glare).

Easy to reach on metro, when we arrived we thought the queue was off putting but the long line was forHarry Potter experience! Once we Joined the left line we were up in no time. The observatory -1500 yen , was great and like Rockefeller In NYC the building provides views of the other towers as well as Tokyo, its 500 yen extra to go on Skydeck but well worth it as you are actually on the roof complete with helipad , very exciting.
Ticket also provides entry to Mori art museum which is excellent- comparable to MOMA in NYC.
View is in Mori building , centrepiece of Roppongi hills with shops , restaurants and lovely gardens, you can easily spend a day there, and I hear the nightlife is very good also.
A tip for travelling around,if unsure of the fare pay the minimum at ticket machine ( 130y for JR, 160y for subway) when you arrive there are fare adjustment machines, clearly marked . It will either confirm you are right and return ticket or tell you how much more and issue new one- great idea.

the view was so good! you can see both skytree and tokyo tower (which you can not do if you are on either of them lol)
the city view and the mori museum come together in a package so make sure you go to the museum too
but of course if you wanna go up to the desk you need to pay more
which we didn't do becuz it was not very good weather so we didn't wanna try it.

overall i would say it's very pretty and easy to get to. but if you are on a budget trip, there are so many other choices too :)

The sky deck and the museum come in a package, so if you do go, take advantage of it. If you're not going to Roppongi, you won't miss much. There are tons of observation places all over Tokyo.
