All reviews free view observation deck north tower degree view mt fuji free entry souvenir shop night view free attraction great view of the city excellent view shinjuku station top floor observatory elevator skytree queue
Followed the advice of others (TA reviews) then the signs from Shinjuku station for a night view of Tokyo. Of course there was a queu but only a twenty minute wait which was well worth it. And it's free!!!
From Shibuya station, this was a long walk through several travellators. When we finally reached the building, there was a Super long queue. The wait took about 40mins just to get to the elevator. The elevator ride to the TOP floor was swift. The observatory...More
In such an expensive city as Tokyo it is rare to come across anything that is free - especially when it is well worth paying money for. We visited on a sunny Saturday morning after visiting the flea market in the park. There was a...More
Because it's free.
Only waited about 5-10 minutes on a weekday afternoon to get up to 45th floor. The South tower was closed for renovation. We went up north tower. Not sure if both were being used to get up normally.
Anyway observation deck has...More
Go early so you don’t have to wait in the queue. We went to the north tower as I believe the south is closed for renovations
There’s someone to guide you to the lift or just follow the crowd
The lift goes to the 40th...More
Obviously being a free attraction this is very popular but the queue is well managed and moves quickly. The views are worth seeing and on the day we went Mount Fuji was visible. There is a restaurant at the top and although we didn't eat...More
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for
cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.

Absolutely. The TMG building is about a 15 min walk to the west of Shinjuku Station. If your hotel is on the same side then it’ll be easy. If your hotel is to the east of Shinjuku station then you need to allow extra time to get across as Shinjuku is one of Tokyo’s largest stations and it can be challenging just to get on the right side.
It took us about 30 mins from our hotel, Shinjuku Granbell, which is to the northeast of Shinjuku station. The TMG building viewing deck is free and worth a visit.

To visit the buildings themselves and have a tour of the government buildings that is accurate. But, the observation decks are open till late and run on a schedule which you can see on their website. Note that the south and north observation decks don’t open till late on the same nights and there is one day where one tower is completely closed depending on their schedules.
