The night view was fantastic and there’s a lot of high-tech entertainment for all ages. You get to see the city from all angels and take lots of pictures. It’s a lot more fun than the planetarium.

This was the best observation deck we found in Tokyo. It is cheap and quiet. We had no issues with crowds and the views were amazing. There are some VR exhibitions which seem aimed at kids, which we skipped. There is a small cafe with...More
