"TOKYO METROPOLITAN" Metropolitan Government Office Building Tip by Adeline_Foo
Metropolitan Government Office Building, Tokyo: 36 reviews and 71 photos
Visit the TOKYO METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OFFICE. Relocated to Shinjuku from Yurakucho in 1991, these offices occupy a giant, cathedral-like structure designed by Kenzo Tange, Japan's leading postwar architect. The building rises 48 floors, dividing at the 33rd story into symmetrical towers that rise to 243 meters. The public observation decks on the 45th floor, reached by elevator in 55 seconds, have now superseded Tokyo Tower as the premier vantage point to survey the entire city. On clear days, especially in winter, the TMGO offers brilliant views of Yokohama to the southwest and Mt. Fuji to the west. There are two towers, the NORTH Tower and the SOUTH Tower. Make sure you go to both towers to see the different views from above!
Address: 10 mins walk from JR/subway Shinjuku Station.
