Tokyo Sky Tree is the tallest tower in Japan, the second tallest structure in the world and it still holds the title of the highest free-standing tower, ever since it’s opening in 2011. Used mainly for broadcasting, the tower has become an iconic symbol of metropolitan Tokyo and lures an average of around 17,000 visitors a day. The upper and lower decks of the tower both provide beautiful aerial views of downtown Tokyo and at a capacity of around 900 people, the 360-degree panoramic windows are put to good use. A gift shop and small bar provide refreshments and trinkets, while a photo service area allows you to take a picture with the perfect backdrop. 

The tower is at the center of the newly built Skytree Town, a complex of restaurants, cafés, shops and an outdoor entertainment area which hosts regular events. The area is also home to Solamachi, a shopping mall with 312 restaurants and retail shops.

Tokyo City View, in the fashionable Roppongi Hills, includes an indoor observatory gallery as well as a rooftop Sky Deck, located at 250m and 270m above sea level respectively. They provide sweeping views of Tokyo and on particularly clear days, Mount Fuji stands out clearly against the many landmarks of the metropolis.

Tokyo City View is located inside the Mori Tower, which also provides visitors with various entertainment options besides the view. The Mori Art Museum on the 53rd-floor hosts fascinating exhibitions and is definitely worth a trip unto itself. Abundant shops (albeit mostly high-end) and restaurants in Roppongi Hills offer something for everyone and are perfect for relaxing after a hard day of sightseeing . If you’re on a budget, don’t fret: advance tickets for Tokyo City View are available at a discounted price and a snack in the park beside Mori Tower is a cheap and enjoyable option.

As the name suggests, Tokyo Tower is one of the most famous landmarks in Tokyo. Completed in 1958, the structure is slimmer, but slightly taller than the Eiffel Tower and easily recognized by its bright red-and-white steel during the day and orange illumination during the night. Standing at 333 meters, Tokyo Tower sports two observation decks: one main observatory at 150 meters and a special observatory at 250 meters. Both platforms provide fantastic views of the surrounding downtown area and on clear days, Tokyo SKYTREE and Mount Fuji may be seen from the upper deck.

Tokyo’s World Trade Center was completed in 1970 as the tallest building in the city at that time, though it only held the title for one year. Recent renovations since 2009 have meant that the observatory at the top of the building now provides a great atmosphere to enjoy the view and relax in the lounge area. The unobstructed view of Tokyo Bay has been especially praised, landing the deck the name “Seaside Top”. The opportunity to observe the hustle and bustle of busy city life, the passing Shinkansen bullet trains and the air traffic above make this view one of the 15 best views in Tokyo.

6. Bunkyou Civic Center

Bunkyou Civic Center is right beside Tokyo Dome and easily accessible from the Tokyo Metro Korakuen Station. The surrounding area furthermore features a small park (Korakuen), Chuo University Campus and Tokyo University Campus for you to explore from above or visit on foot. The observation deck, Sky View Lounge, on the 25th floor at a height of 105m, butts out strikingly from the rest of the building, making the tower look nostalgically like the PEZ dispensers we all loved and hated. The panoramic view from the top shows off the beautiful Tokyo skyline and, again, if the weather is clear you’ll be able to see Mount Fuji peek through the skyscrapers.

Most importantly, the municipal office building allows visitors free entry to the viewing platform. Go there in the late afternoon to catch a day and night view of downtown Tokyo.

7. Sunshine 60

Sunshine 60 held the impressive title of “tallest building in Asia” after its completion in 1978. Unsurprisingly then, it’s 60th floor (500m) viewing platforms offers excellent views of the city below. The building is part of the Sunshine City complex where you’ll find abundant shops, restaurants, an aquarium and much more to entertain you if the view doesn’t (we don’t believe that’ll happen, though). The building itself is a mixed use space with commercial use floors, a health care center, office space and restaurants at the top. Sunshine 60 is located in Ikebukuro, adjacent to the area’s primary shopping district where you’ll find even more shops and amenities to enjoy. The perfect setting to combine a shopping trip and an aerial view of Tokyo city.

Theme park SKY CIRCUS is a recent addition to Sunshine City, a great place to enjoy alongside the viewing platform, especially with children.

8. Caretta Shiodome

Photo credit: Kabacchi via flickr cc

If Sunshine 60 is the family friendly option on the list, then Caretta Shiodome mall is the perfect opposite. Mainly geared toward adult entertainment with lots of business-related services, several clinics, shops and restaurants, the tower is the perfect place to enjoy some luxury, great food and the great facilities alongside the view. There are expansive terraces on which to enjoy food or drink, and from the top floors, Rainbow Bridge, Odaiba and Ginza are all clearly visible. The view is particularly spectacular at night when everything is beautifully lit.

Close by you’ll find Hamarikyu Gardens, former imperial gardens now open to the public. It is a beautiful space with a great atmosphere; perfectly integrating the surrounding modern skyscrapers with lush nature. A small Shinto shrine, Kyuinao Shrine, is worth a visit while you’re there.

Ebisu Garden Place is a shopping and entertainment complex close to Ebisu Station, offering a wide variety of high-end products, restaurants and services in a beautiful setting. Built on the plot of the former Ebisu brewery, you’ll still find the beer on sale at various shops around the main square. Young families and professionals frequent the cafés and restaurants, and when the weather is nice, the terraces of the ground floor restaurants are all opened. Events for kids and families are also offered at specific times of the year and dotted around you’ll find information on the history of Ebisu beer and the construction of Ebisu Garden Place. Adjacent to the complex is Ebisu Garden Place Tower.

Similar to Caretta Shiodome, the top floors of Ebisu Garden Place Tower offer restaurants with sweeping views of central Tokyo. Bring your children, but it’s just as fun for a date or shopping spree (if you’ve got the money, that is).

This office complex is by no means the tallest, but it’s not all about the view here, the internal structure and evening lighting make this building beautiful on the inside – literally. From the top floors, the surrounding glass facades of other office complexes give a great close-up aerial view of metropolitan Tokyo. Once the sun has set, the lights reflecting off the buildings are a feast for the eyes and the camera lens.

Photo credit: Dick Thomas Johnson via flickr cc

This is another kid-friendly option. Find here a ton of entertainment for practically all ages, so long as they’re interested in Fuji Television’s famous anime characters. Plus, there are plenty of shops and restaurants around to cater to your needs after enjoying the panorama. Hachitama, the spherical viewing platform, offers a 360-degree view of the surrounding seaside area, Odaiba and Rainbow Bridge. Gaze inward too, as Hachitama also offers a view into the permanent studios located inside the globe-shaped part of Fuji Television Headquarters.

Fans of Fuji Television’s drama, films or anime can check out the displays of original equipment and purchase related merchandise in the Theater Mall, F-Island or Fuji TV Wonder Street after taking in the panoramic view of Tokyo. If you want to connect all the excitement to a bit of relaxation, Tokyo Oedo Onsen Monogatari, opposite the studios, is a great way to end the day.

12. Carrot Tower

Photo credit: Rs1421 [CC BY-SA 3.0] via Wikimedia Commons

At a height of 124m, the Carrot Tower in Setagaya Ward is by no means the highest, but its suburban setting gives this 26 story public center an edge: there are no buildings obstructing its view. Haziness threatens to make this panorama of Tokyo city into a bit of a disappointment for avid photographers, so it’s best to check the weather forecast before visiting. It’s completely free, though, so if you happen to have bad luck the first time around, just check it out again another day.

The upper levels are office space, but the lower ones contain shops and facilities like a theater and a gallery, so there’s more than just a view.

The 360-degree observation platform on top of the tower provides another fantastic view of surrounding metropolitan Tokyo and makes it well-worth a visit on a clear day. Avoid torrential rain or other extreme weather conditions, as this 115m high tower does tend to close in bad weather, though it’s otherwise open all-year-round. The adjacent concert hall makes this the perfect opportunity to enjoy some music or a performance before or after checking out the view from the top.

The lower floors include beauty salons, restaurants, cafes and shops to accommodate any other needs you may have.

14. Shinjuku Granbell Hotel Rooftop Bar G

Provided by Foursquare
Provided by Foursquare

Renovated in 2016, this rooftop terrace bar is a hidden gem. It’s part of Shinjuku Granbell Hotel but the 13th floor of the building and is open to guests and non-guests alike. Great staff, wonderful decor and a relaxed ambience make this the perfect place to watch the sunset and enjoy a few drinks or a meal. Though not cheap, but by no means overpriced, Rooftop Bar G is a great spot if you want high-rise dining without spending an arm and a leg. Situated in gritty Kabukicho, where love hotels and bars abound, this is probably one just for the grown-ups. Seriously, don’t bring your kids.

15. New Otani Hotel Bar

Famous for its garden and luxury interior, this hotel also offers a priceless view of the Tokyo city skyline. Both the night view and the daytime view are gorgeous and if you’re a lover of fine food and drink, you’re in luck: the Sky Bar and restaurant offers a great quality selection, which should cater to your every need. It does come at a price, but hey, how often do you dine in a revolving restaurant with a 360-degree view of Tokyo city, the famous landmarks and even Mount Fuji?

If you’d rather be even higher up, you can switch to the Otani Garden Tower’s Bella Vista restaurant on the 40th floor and enjoy a spectacular view from there. The Sky Bar comes most highly recommended, however, as the revolving platform and free view of Tokyo’s skyscrapers is really something.
