Awesome Views of Tokyo

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building is an excellent stop in Tokyo to see the city's skyline. Located just a short walk from Shinjuku Station, the government building is one of the best places to get a stunning view of Tokyo. The building is the headquarters for the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and handles the affairs of the 23 wards in Tokyo. Built in Shinjuku, the Metropolitan Government Building features two panoramic observation decks on the 45th floors of the North and South Towers. These observation decks stand 202 meters (663 ft) above the ground with gift shops and cafes for your enjoyment. Enjoy a cup of coffee from the top of the tower as the sunsets for an unforgettable view, or come with that special someone for the perfect photo of your vacation. If you wish to see the iconic Skytree, Tokyo Tower, or Mount Fuji during your Japan Tour, you should consider adding the Tokyo Metropolis Government Building to your itinerary!

If you think the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building looks familiar, you wouldn't be surprised to hear it has been featured in numerous works. While it does not have the notoriety as Skytree or Tokyo Tower, plenty of dramas and anime's have featured the building. Built to look like a microchip, this futuristic design was featured in Godzilla movies and served as the inspiration to the castle of the Kingdom of Lucis, a nation in the popular Final Fantasy XV game. If you're a fan of video games, we highly recommend creating a private Japan tour package with the Kingdom of Lucis, or check it out on your own during the free day on our Anime Pioneer Adventure Tokyo Tour Packages!
