“free views of Tokyo and surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2012

the wait is only about 10-15 minutes long, the access is free and the view is stunning. we even got a glimpse od Fuji-san, the Landmark tower in Yokohama and of course the new Sky Tree, which is for now nice to spot from the little alleys in the neighborhood

“Looking good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2012

The view of Tokyo from the Government Office is fantastic. If you are an English speaker they give you a headset to tell you about all the building that you are looking at. The narration can get a bit boring but the headset is free so it is worthwhile. You get a 360 degree view of the city so even if you don't get the headset you can enjoy the view.

“Nice Views”

Interesting architecture. You can also go to the top of both the north and south towers for free to view the city. In one of the tower's there is a restaurant.

“Awesome building and views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2012

A very impressive building in a typically Japanese way. You can go to the top of both towers for free and snap pictures of Tokyo. There's also some pretty sweet gift shops up there too. I liked the maps showing the different parts of Tokyo. An excellent lookout.

“The night views are not as good as before but sunsets are fab!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2012

I have been up the towers many times and came to a conclusion that the night view is not as spectacular as before due to energy saving measures in Tokyo.

Hence, I decided to time my third trip there during sunset and it was magnificent! I was blessed with a clear day and could see the sea from certain windows. My brother and I were going nuts dancing from window to window taking picture after picture.

It is a very very long walk from the station, but the view is fabulous for a free attraction.
