  • Observatories are notorious for being tourist traps. We know entrance tickets are overpriced and that views are usually overrated; but we still include it in our travel itinerary anyway, especially...  more »
  • Great observatory and well worth the ~600 Yen entrance fee. You can walk around and get a wide 360 degree view of the surrounding areas. This has to be one of the best places to view Tokyo Tower too.....  more »

  • Great place to photograph night views of Tokyo, especially Tokyo Tower is right in front of this observatory. This opens from 10:00 am to 8:30 pm almost everyday. Adult admission is 620 yen as of November 2018. I like convenience of this top observatory the best because it's close to the JR Hamamatsucho Station.
  • Absolutely magnificent view. Not expensive and special elevator take you very quickly to the top. Whole city and even ocean can be seen. Don't forget to visit WTC.
