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.
