FREE view of the city. GOOD views of the city. Come here! Super close to Shinjuku's electric street and easy to find.

I usually do not visit over touristy spot but TMG is really a great place to spend some time in Tokyo. and i ended up going twice - one morning and another time at night. The view is stunning at both times but gives me very different feeling about this wonderful city.

both observatories are good and easily accessible from one another - do check timing because they have different hours operating on different days.

Try to go during weekday to avoid super big crowd. Signs and direction are easy to follow - easily accessible from Tochoeme station.

If you are hungry - there are staff canteen(a huge one) on both tower that starts serving at 11AM(level 32) . Both Western and Japanese meal choices are very reasonably priced and respectable quality. even the view from the canteen is awesome

Nice views from here. We were lucky enough to see Mt Fuji. Clean and not too hard to get to. We recommend it.

Forget paying for a view of the city - Tokyo - and Mt Fuji. Go to the top of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office and from the top floor there is a magnificent observatory and cafe.
Highly recommended. A short work from Shinjuku Station - west gate.

The night time views from the top of the tower were excellent, although as had been said in a previous review the lights are on full blast and it does affect the view. The other downside is that 20% of the view (and from what i could glimpse through the partitions, the best views) can only be seen if you are in the restaurant.

However it was free and warm and a short walk from Shinjuku Station.
