We visited in daylight and after dark. A number of reviewers have talked about limited views and it is important to actually go to the viewing decks. As you leave the lift there are windows but if you move out to the main corridor then...More

It's a pretty average view of Sendai City, nothing much that stands out. However, it is free to view.

Amazing panoramic views in this rather hidden roof terrace - NB - it is on two sides of the building. Good for watching shinkansens as well.

We went there in the daylight on a cloudy day, so Sendai looked big but a bit grey. Night view must be better from there. Also, the terrace has a glass wall but at the roof, it's opened, so it was a bit cold. You...More

The panorama terrace consists of two windows and the view is not that interesting. Elevetors are a bit difficult to be found. Go shopping instead!

This building is the only observation you can use for free in Sendai. You can come in day time and night time (the building closes at 10pm) to see different views. At night there're many couples understandably. There're plenty of benches to enjoy the view....More

The most uniquely Japanese thing about this skyscraper is that full access is freely available to the whole world. No security desk, not even a turnstile. Great views of most of the city from the top and you can see all the way to the...More

The Aer Building offers one of the best bargains in Sendai. For exactly no money you can take an elevator to the top of the building and have a glorious view over the entire city. There are two observation rooms, be sure to check them...More

There are restaurants in this complex but I am not exactly sure if they are western or Japanese, however, near the complex you can find many western restaurants including kfc.
