Nice cafe up there for you to enjoy yourself and...More
The towers are actually good at and the observatory deck as well. The only thing is that Tokyo is not that fascinating from above. You can see some skyscrapers and a good view of the city. However, the skytree tower's best view is reserved by...More
We went to the observation deck after dinner and the views were great. It took us a while to find the entrance but the guards were very helpful. I imagine the queue to get in can be long at times but we got straight in...More
The building is the symbol of Tokyo Shinjyuku Area, Office Building of Tokyo Metoropolitan Government.Access is a little hard for the first visitor intended to get off trains at Shinjyuku Station as the walking distance is 10 minutes and the station is tremendously huge and...More
It’s such a strange thing that you can find an observation deck with a 360 degrees view FOR FREE! It’s a good point that the government building offers this experience to everybody. Congratulations to the city government for it.
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.
