We took advantage of the free guide service and were taken to areas of the building that you cannot wander through. Our guide was a charming, well informed retiree. This service operates during office hours.The day we visited was raining so Mt. Fuji was not visible but in spite of that disappointment the vista was fabulous. Try to get back at night when the entrance is from the basement level.

Free entrance, opens late til 11PM and you get an English speaking guide for free. On a clear day or night, you can see Mt. Fuji.

It's a little bit far from Sshinjuku station (about 15mins to walk)
But nice view for FREE.
There is also a cafe at the observation floor.
If you are looking for the sightseeing spots for free, nice place.

You can go up to the 40th floor of this building and get a free panoramic view of the city...well worth a visit.
