The panorama terrace consists of two windows and the view is not that interesting. Elevetors are a bit difficult to be found. Go shopping instead!

There are some elevators in this building, but some of them do not go up to the 31st floor. There's no admission fee for the lookout terrace, so if you have time, go up... More

Beautiful place to see Sendai city from a guided map. I believe this is the tallest building in Sendai for lookout. And the most amazing part is that, its "Free"!!

This building is the only observation you can use for free in Sendai. You can come in day time and night time (the building closes at 10pm) to see different views. At night there're many couples understandably. There're plenty of benches to enjoy the view. The observation floor also has clean bathroom.

The most uniquely Japanese thing about this skyscraper is that full access is freely available to the whole world. No security desk, not even a turnstile. Great views of most of the city from the top and you can see all the way to the coast. If you have 20 minutes before or after a train you can easily make... More

The Aer Building offers one of the best bargains in Sendai. For exactly no money you can take an elevator to the top of the building and have a glorious view over the entire city. There are two observation rooms, be sure to check them both out as the rooms have very different views. I occasionally visit the Lookout Terraces... More

What few of the other reviews tell you is the view from the 31st floor is limited to approximately 120 degrees on either side of the building. It takes in a few, but not all, of the interesting sights to both sides of the city and out to the horizon. Word of advice don't bother when it's raining in Autumn.... More

The AER building is next to Sendai Station. The elevator takes you up to the 31st floor where there is a breath taking view of the city. There is no charge for the visit and it is a must see visit and very convenient since it's next to the Sendai Station.

Clear signs to get up to this, at the top of an office building. It's all glass, so it's a bit cold in winter! But it's got a nice view, you can see all the way out to the Port of Sendai even. The environment is nice with wood benches and nice plants. In the short period between nightfall and... More
