13 4月 Observation spots in Tokyo
Sometimes the guest asks me about the observation spots in Tokyo.
Tokyo tower and Tokyo skytree are the most popular place, but they are not free and must be busy on weekend.
So, I will show you some free observation spots I recommend in Tokyo
・Tokyo Metropolitan Government building in Shimnjuku
Here is not known as Tokyo tower or Tokyo skytree, but there is an observation on 45th floor in the south and north building.
You can enjoy the view with skyscrapers and Tokyo skytree from here.
And there is a cafe bar that you can enjoy coffee and snacks on the same floor.
・Asakusa culture tourist information center
Asakusa culture tourist information center that is located in front of Kaminarimon Gate has money exchange, ticket shop and tourist information on the 1st floor, and also has a observation terrace on the 8th floor.
Here is not so high as Tokyo Metropolitan Government building in Shimnjuku, but you can enjoy the whole view of Sensoji buildings and Nakamise street.
・Hokutopia in Ojio
Hokutopia is a community center that has a concert hall and huge meeting rooms located by Oji station, and also there is an observation on the 17th floor.
