  • Experience a 360 degree view of Tokyo for free

    The first time I visited Tokyo I was given the hot tip that the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building had a free observation deck. Now that I live in Tokyo, it's the first place I visit with friends and family from overseas! The building itself is a stunning, monolithic feat of architecture. After a super fast elevator trip up the observation deck on the 45th floor, you exit into a large room with wide, sweeping views of Tokyo. Each window has photo panel identifying buildings and popular landmarks which is of course very helpful and exciting for new visitors to Tokyo! If the weather conditions are right, you will have the opportunity to glimpse the infamous Mt Fuji. We visited at 10am on a cold, still February morning and we were lucky enough to have one of the most incredible views of Mt Fuji I have ever experienced. Once you've finished with the views, the deck has a lovely, small gift shop, and often there are food and information displays on the various localities of Japan. I haven't ever really experienced large crowds here, though I haven't been during cherry blossom season or Golden Week. You could easily spend an hour here, and the best part is that it's all for free! In my opinion, this is a must-do if you're in Shinjuku and surrounds.

    Get High For Free In Tokyo

    When people visit Tokyo, they think about climbing the Skytree or visiting the iconic Tokyo Tower. Roppongi also has an observatory with special exhibitions, but I always stop them and drag them to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building in Shinjuku with me. Why? Because it is FREE. Both the South and North towers are free to enter, and you get an amazing view up top in both day and night time. Sure, it doesn't have the same souvenir shops, but that also means less distractions. Speaking of less, it is also much less crowded, so there's no need to wait in line for half an hour to buy tickets (and.... what tickets? It's free!!) This place is a definite-visit, and it is worth your every yen.

    Tokyo Lights for Free

    Looking for something fun but not an energy-consuming activity? Just want to have rest after a long day of strolling around but also enjoy your rest? Why don't you try the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building. There is a free observation deck at the height of 202 meters. Aside from the free observation deck, you can also shop on some souvenir shops in the same floor where the observation deck is. You can also enjoy yourself with the cafe inside. The place will offer you the view from above of some key tourists destination in the area such as the Tokyo Skytree, Tokyo Tower, Meiji Shrine and Tokyo Dome. In all, before leaving the area, try to relax yourself by catching the city lights from above with the very cheap price of FREE! More blogs? Follow my page. Thank you. Happy Reading.
