Designed by architect Kenzo Tange and completed in 1996, the Fuji TV building has become a landmark of the Odaiba area thanks to its unusual silhouette, featuring a giant floating sphere and a skeletal central section of pedestrian bridges and columns.

The silver-titanium sphere is set at a height of around 100 meters, and it houses a small observation deck offering an excellent view of the Tokyo Bay waterfront area and Rainbow Bridge. Other than the view, though, there's not too much to see here - a few TV show sets and props on the fifth floor, and souvenirs galore on the first and seventh floors.
