Most major cities around the world feature observation decks but what makes Tokyo unique is the sheer number of decks on offer to the tourist. I haven’t been able to ascertain the actual number of observation decks but it is definitely in the double digits,...More

... it is not the highest one in Tokyo. The entrance was free (like at Shinjuku Government Buildung). There are no high buildings around the center, so the view is ok. And you can see the Skytree from here. All other sightseeing platforms are farther...More

Close to the Koishikawa Korakuen gardens ,this has a free observation deck on the 25th floor with restrooms, vending machines and wonderful views. If visiting the gardens this is worth the detour.

This is the best free viewing point in Tokyo (that’s available to the public) you get a much better view than the more well known metropolitan government building. The windows are angled to allow for a great view up and down. And the lights are...More

A free ride to the 25th floor will take you to a wonderful panoramic view of Tokyo. On a clear day you can even see Fuji-san.

Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around
the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in
Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a
photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old
Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this
day, and there are long-standing restaurants with
geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
