  • I felt the Asian tourists are strange to many, Macau S.A.R.-like atmosphere. However, the hotel recently was there such a place.

  • Station with a direct connection is safe even in the rain. In a beautiful building up tension. Easy-to-shop Kintetsu head office is not crowded, so I thought.

  • A super deluxe shopping center with views of the highest building in the country at 300 meters. It does cost quite a bit of money so I recommend the lobby in the Marriott hotel. If you can pay for ¥1500 coffee, enjoy your seats at the posh lounge, but I just go and enjoy the views. If you want to get a glimpse of the top floor, go to the restaurant floor and take a look out the tiny windows 57th floor.
  • Terrific 360 views at the top!! You walk around way above the rest of the city. We went in the evening and watched sunset which was nice. It was also cool to see the city transform as it became dark. They have an open air garden Cafe where you can purchase food and drinks.
  • Get your ticket on 16th floor and go on up to the 60th for the observation floor. The view is great. Go down to the cafe on the lower floor for snacks, coffee, tea, bar, food, and a great pineapple candy ice cream. Be aware once you leave the 60 floor for snacks you cannot go back. Once you're done, go down to 16th floor deck for more views. Then take escalator down to restaurant levels. The first restaurant will be IL Mondo, the pasta with veggies, and the ribs are great.
  • I visited around noon and enjoyed the sight. I think the cost is reasonable (some people write it expensive tho). If you visit at night, I am sure that you can enjoy beautiful night view of the city. Good place to spend time.
  • The tallest building in Japan. Nice view from the top (you can't get outside) and shopping centre in the lower floors. Great facilities.
