Visit Tokyo: Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building Observation Decks

For free views of Tokyo from above, visit the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building in Shinjuku.

There are two Observation Decks - North and South, which offer views from the 45th floor at 202 meters high.

Prior to entering the elevators to go up to each observatory, bags go through a security check.

Once at the 45th floor, you are free to roam to take photos and learn about the area.

We went on a day that was gray and rainy, so visibility was poor, and clouds prevented us from seeing a lot of famous landmarks, like the Tokyo Tower and Tokyo SkyTree, but we still got to see a lot of other sights, like Yoyogi Park, and the cool Mode Gakuen Cocoon Tower.

And it was still very neat to see hundreds and hundreds of buildings packed into the city, some with intriguing architecture; others with interesting colors.  The buildings seemed to just go on and on and on.

Can you see the North Tower observatory?

At each tower you'll find souvenir shops, as well as cafes.

Although the weather was gloomy and we didn't have the best views, the observation decks were free and a great place to spend indoors on a super cold and rainy day.
