View Tokyo for Free from Metropolitan Government Office


Many of you would want to go to a place where you can overlook the city when visiting Tokyo

The Skytree and the Tokyo Tower are the famous options, but they cost around 2000 – 3000 yen.

Let me introduce another option, the observation deck in Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office.

This beautiful building is constituted with 2 skyscrapers.

They have two different observation rooms in the north and the south, and be careful because the closing days differ each other. 

Take the observatory elevator to access the deck from the 1st floor.


Make sure you take plenty of time since there are always a lot of people in a row, especially in weekends.

As you get on the elevatory, go up to the 45th floor at 202 meters above the ground!

From the observation deck, you can see the Skytree and the Tokyo Tower.

Especially on sunny days, you may even see Mt. Fuji.

Beautiful sunset can be seen as well.

There are restaurants and gift shops as well.

Why don’t you visit here for a date?
