Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, Shinjuku

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building in Shinjuku functions as Tokyo City Hall and also houses two free observatories for tourists. North and South observation decks are located on top two floors and provide a good free way to see much of the city while shopping for souvenirs at the observatories’ gift shops. Unfortunately, Tokyo Tower is not visible from the North Observation Deck (and perhaps not the South one either).

Directions
