Catch sweeping views of the city from one of the two public observation decks at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings. Completed in 1990, the postmodern building designed by Japanese architect Kenzo Tange references a Gothic cathedral.

One of them stays open late, providing glittering views of the skyline on clear nights.

  • Fantastic view!!! I visited at night but would love to go again during the day. I love that it’s free!! You have to wait in line but it moves very quickly. Cute gift shop up the top. Not too crowded and plenty of places to take pictures!
  • Very tall building with an observation deck with free entrance in each one of the two towers. You can visit it be metro. It has great view! It also called Tax Tower because houses government services.
