Catch sweeping views of the city from one of the two public observation decks at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building. Completed in 1990, the postmodern building designed by Japanese architect Kenzo Tange references a Gothic cathedral. Inside, the governing bodies for the entire Tokyo metropolitan area have their headquarters. At 202 m (663 ft), the building's observation decks each contain a cafe and souvenir shop. One of them stays open late, providing glittering views of the skyline on clear nights.

  • Excuse for me of 大川畑 浩二 to my abrupt message and comment to this website of Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building is to my grateful greeting to have been capable to visit on the skyscraper of Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building in my private business trip for Tokyo city via the period of 24th to 25th in a stay at 銀座 district typically.. It was 4th business trip of me to be around there with the purpose on applying and suggesting the paper to the public architect organization of 東京建築士会 to get the Membership Certificate of 東京建築士会 besides was to the confirmation on my supplied public authentication paper of Welfare and National pension on what were already delivered at me on the late last year.. by the cause of it is so un-balance state and condition with our communication method and mobile device in utilizing them to the website and persons as connect them and so I have attempted to have my visit at there for those of application and confirmation mostly.. and if I were possible to say about my impression in a stay of 東京 city in while a day seemed to have showed me a so calm and silent state for its environment all via the district of 信濃町 to 新宿 and in a halfway of dropped in the department store of 高島屋 accurately.. Also it got the same atmosphere to feel at me for its cityscape and landscape in walking ahead to the final place of 東京都庁.. furthermore as 大川畑 compared with the year before last year and with the year before about 15 or 16 years were still same to the upward in my visit at the time.. In the year before 40 years of 大川畑 who once stayed and lived around 神楽坂 area in 新宿 district and to other place in 東京 city for about 4 or 5 years with the career of our ancestor who once lived around there until the time of they had been driven away and out from there with their un-clear reason and cause in our probable anticipation of them, was still more showed me the silent environment in comparison with at the time that I stayed around there for its economy state was in high-growth period all through Japan.. However and is still looking up and admired place of 東京 city once lived there with ourselves and ancestor of us are in preparation to be back and to work in the community as making relationship for persons living around there with our hope and wish to get a restoration for the familiar state as it was like the past hopefully !.. Therefore as for my next visit to 東京 city is purposed making reservation to my stay is for the huge hotel of 新宿ワシントン Hotel on being taken care from them in the business period of 雇用促進事業団 for the public name at the time !.. Thank you for having been permitted us to enter and being in the great skyscraper of Metropolitan Government Building of 東京都庁.. on March 3rd in 2,016 !.. with sincere best regards of us..
  • There is free access to the observation deck - definitely worth checking out. Awesome views of the city. Less-obstructed view from the South tower.
  • A good place to see the whole of shinjuku, it was a wonderful experience. Mount fuji at far ground! Recommend for solo travellers as there are tours at the observatory deck.
  • Good place to see the dimensions of Tokyo. You can enjoy the view from the 45th floor. Entrance is free and you can get up and down fast without waiting in line for too long. My recommendation is to visit the south tower since you have a better view. In the north tower some windows are blocked by a restaurant.
