One of my favorite building in Tokyo. It's very picturesque from afar, below and above. It's a relatively old building already but very clean and well kept.

The observatories commands a good view of the surrounding Shinjuku area. In good weather, you can see as far as Mt Fuji.

The best part is it's FREE! :D

The best place to go to if you want to see a full view of Tokyo. Just bring yourself, your camera and you're good to go! No entrance fee and you can also dine from above.
