¥1100 entry for foreigners (you need photo ID) and we felt it was very worth it. You can take an elevator or walk and I suggest walking as the path to the top is very nice. There are both steps and a ramp so it...More

It's definitely a must visit if you love sunset views. To catch the shades of pink and purple during the sunset, you should be at the Roof Garden by 5pm if you're visiting in November. The autumn winds were pretty stong at sunset timing, but...More

Came here for sunset, it was super windy at the top. Entrance fee was 900 for foreign passport holders, includin one onigami paper, you can fold that into a swan and throw it down the tower at the designated area.

Brand-new building adjacent to the Atomic Bomb Dome. Although the fee 1,700 JPY is a little too expensive, the view from the top was wonderful. Feeling a cool breeze, you can look down the Dome from above. Amazing!

We nearly didn't do this, as we were averse to paying for a viewing tower, but I could not be more glad we did. As tourists, we got in at a discounted price, by presenting our passports. You go up to the top floor and...More

It costs 1700yen for the observatory. If you bring your passport, the cost will be 1100yen, much cheaper than usual. I recommend it.
