  • Wonderful site to visit. Excellent 360° view from the top and great place for photo op even on a day with poor visibility.
  • This building is amazing. There are 2 tower and on the top The Floating Garden. The evening city view is beautiful.
  • Was in the area on the way to the Sky Building. We had to go through an underground passage since there was construction being done. The place was fairly quite and empty particularly later at night when we left around 1900. There were taxis waiting near the street on the way back to the underground passage.
  • Good views of the city at night. Advice: wear white so that you can take pictures of yourself in blue light
  • It a beautiful building... yet other towers are more interesting in Japan.
