All reviews free view observation deck north tower mt fuji degree view souvenir shop free attraction night view great view of the city free entry top floor excellent view shinjuku station observatory elevator skytree queue
The shinjuku government building observation floor is an essential must see during any visit to Tokyo! The views are stunning and access is free! The shop and cafe are also worth a visit but the views themselves are certainly the highlight.
The metropolitan government building has a free observation terrace on floor 45. The elevator ride takes 50 seconds. Great panoramic views of Tokyo. Very short lines, waited less than 5 minutes. There is a gift shop and cafe at the observation terrace
This attraction is free! That's a huge positive. You get a cool view of Shinjuku and the surrounding prefectures. The downside? Lines are long going down and up. I spent about an hour waiting round trip. If you're visiting in the winter, expect to regret...More
As said in the title this is a nice free alternative way to get the city views to Tokyo Skytree and Tokyo tower. It is open till late, at least one of the entrances is and is not very crowded. I went there in the...More
The government building offers you a pretty good view over Tokyo and it is for free. It might not be the best viewing point in the town since there is some high buildings surrounding it on some sides, who are blocking the view. You do...More
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for
cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.

Absolutely. The TMG building is about a 15 min walk to the west of Shinjuku Station. If your hotel is on the same side then it’ll be easy. If your hotel is to the east of Shinjuku station then you need to allow extra time to get across as Shinjuku is one of Tokyo’s largest stations and it can be challenging just to get on the right side.
It took us about 30 mins from our hotel, Shinjuku Granbell, which is to the northeast of Shinjuku station. The TMG building viewing deck is free and worth a visit.

To visit the buildings themselves and have a tour of the government buildings that is accurate. But, the observation decks are open till late and run on a schedule which you can see on their website. Note that the south and north observation decks don’t open till late on the same nights and there is one day where one tower is completely closed depending on their schedules.
