Free-observation decks over 202 meters, with a broad view of Tokyo and the surroundings, including Mount Fuji and the Tokyo Skytree.
The two-towers complex is a project of the famous architect Kenzo Tange.
This is worth a trip up to floor 45. A great view and it is free. Apparently there are a few buildings in Tokyo that you can go up to an observatory level for free. I only tried this one. It was free when I...More
Had a chance to view Tokyo at night from the Tokyo government building and it’s free! They are open until 11:00 pm. After a nice walk and a great dinner- a nice place to view Tokyo. But it’s sad that there were numerous homeless people...More
Being right across the street at the Hyatt, we were able to visit the observation deck in the morning and evening. Great views of Tokyo and the surrounding mountains although we weren't able to see MT Fuji due to distant overcast. On the first floor...More
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings are a 15-minute walk from the JR train station, and offer a free visit to their observation deck. We went later in the afternoon to avoid the longer queues, so there was a reasonable 15-minute wait for the elevator.
Free admission to the observation floor of the building(45th floor). Two observation floors one in the north tower and one in the south tower. South tower closed for renovation at time of our visit. Bag search before going up. Staff are very helpful and friendly.Good...More
The South tower is closed for renovation until Spring 2019.
This is free so we should not complain. The biggest thing for me is that if you go up there hoping to take good photos - good luck. People put their hands on the glasses...More
It is close to metro train station, it is free and is on the 45th floor. The view is nice and you can scan the bar code and download info to your phone. We went up in the evening to see the night view. I...More
I came at night to see the cityscape and it was, of course, magnificent, but a bit like a train station with all the lines and jostling. Maybe they were backed up because security was doing bag checks of everyone headed up. There were signs...More
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for
cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.

Absolutely. The TMG building is about a 15 min walk to the west of Shinjuku Station. If your hotel is on the same side then it’ll be easy. If your hotel is to the east of Shinjuku station then you need to allow extra time to get across as Shinjuku is one of Tokyo’s largest stations and it can be challenging just to get on the right side.
It took us about 30 mins from our hotel, Shinjuku Granbell, which is to the northeast of Shinjuku station. The TMG building viewing deck is free and worth a visit.

To visit the buildings themselves and have a tour of the government buildings that is accurate. But, the observation decks are open till late and run on a schedule which you can see on their website. Note that the south and north observation decks don’t open till late on the same nights and there is one day where one tower is completely closed depending on their schedules.
