Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building Shinjuku Reviews
Observatory of Tokyo on the top floor Jul 12, 2000
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building or also known as City Hall, is a twin building which are 243 meters tall. On the 45th floor, that's 202 meters above the ground, are observatories in both buildings.
Both are free to visit from morning till almost midnight. I went up there with several members of the group and despite the cloudy skies, we had a pretty good view of the city.
I also went up on 2 occasions during the evening and at night, the lights in Tokyo are spectacular to see. Too bad, it's pretty hard to take good pictures through the windows. The reflections can screw up your photos, so be aware of your angle.
On both 3 visits, it wasn't so crowded. Be aware of the prices of the cafe on the top floor. Otherwise, this is a great place to visit.
