You'll be able to have the most beautiful and complete view of Tokyo from here. Even now, years later I look back at the photos that I shot and gasp. Well worth the trip. (Visited in 2011)

As was said before just take the train and get off at shinjuku. Just remember that shinjuku station is enormous so make sure you take the exit on the same side as the building
