"Best Aerial View Of Tokyo" Metropolitan Government Office Building Tip by TexasDave

  One of the tallest buildings in Tokyo
by TexasDave

Tokyo Metropolitan Goverment building offers free access to the observation areas on the 45th floor. In expensive Tokyo this is one freebie that should not be missed. On a clear day you can see Mt. Fuji. (the picture on my opening page for Tokyo was taken from here.)
There are two towers to choose from, but the view is pretty much the same- get on the line that is shorter.

Address: Western edge of Shinjuku
Directions: A 10 min. walk from Shinjuku Station. A closer metro station is Tochomae.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
