Bunkyo Civic Center, Bunkyo

#196 of 2,117 in Things to do in Tokyo
One of Tokyo's major government buildings, Bunkyo Civic Center draws attentions with its design resembling a Pez candy dispenser. Some of the rooms within this building serve as university classrooms, others provide a modern setting for business meetings, while one entire floor remains a kid's play area. The building's top attraction is the 25th floor, where an observation deck offers possibly the best view of the city from 105 m (344 ft) above ground.

  • Do this one early during your stay you will get a good orientation since the views are great and lots of helpful information provided  more »
  • Despite being lower than other known viewpoints of Tokyo, Bunkyo Civic Center offers a wonderful view to the Shinjuku area (with Fuji in the background on a clear day), that towards the sky tree area; He also raked allowing you to take pictures without reflections, then step into the sunset, so you can see Tokyo from above both during the day and at sunset, as well as at night.

  • Knowing that the Observatory, I go take a walk. Earth view from the 25th floor, overlooks the entire city, very nice. Could this time will not be used, in addition to function as a normal bunkyo-Ku Ward Office scale Hall of bunkyo civic Hall.

  • Great FREE observation deck with few visitors. Nice place to be quiet and enjoy the view. Will like to come back and try the restaurant next time.
  • Marvelous scene
  • View from the dining room is good. But the taste is average. It is a public institution.

  • Tokyo hidden spots. As the Tokyo Metropolitan Government's view is not good and above all vacant, doesn't make any noise.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
