Free, yes it is free to observatory deck. South and North building. We went up North at night (because they close south one at night) and South in the morning. South observatory deck has bigger windows and better gift shops.

Instead of Tokyo Tower, we walked 5 mins from the hotel to two observatory decks on the 45th floor that gave us a fabulous view of Tokyo skyline both from North and South Towers - go to both! It's worth the trip.

The view was amazing, and it was free! Quite fun just to walk around the area afterwards too with so many cool and tall buildings to look at... a great place to start to get idea of how Tokyo is oriented!
