This is well worth visiting if you want to get a good aerial view of Tokyo. Unfortunately the day I was there Mount Fuji was not visible but it was still an enjoyable experience. Bear in mind you need to enter via the basement level...More

This is one of the nice options for seeing the city view of Tokyo. As there is no entrance fee, there will be many visitors all the time. You may need to prepare for about 15 to 30 minute to queue up for the escalator...More

Bit of a queue to get up there, but worth it. Stunning view of Tokyo and a pleasant stay. Doesn’t take long, but defo a place to go when in Tokyo - just to get an idea of how vast this Metropolitan actually is.

Not much in Tokyo is free, but this is. Go at sunset and then stay to see the lights in the city. You may need to wait in line, but like all things in Japan, it's very organized. There are windows almost all the way...More

It's well worth going up to the top of the tower for amazing 360 views of the city. It's a free attraction and opens until 11pm

Not much is free in Tokyo but this one is, an observation deck on the top of the government buildings gives a pretty good 360 view of the city. Worth stopping by if your in the area.

Excellent views of the city and for free. Better that the Tokyo Tower which is an entrance fee facility. Pretty easy to get to the top and a nice coffee place to chill afterwards.

The jr train is easy. Get off at Shinjuku station. It is a 10 minute walk to hotel from station. Very busy station. Ask the station attendants for directions and correct exit
