With its prime location looking out over Tokyo Bay, the Odaiba area and the towers of Shiodome, this 40th-floor observation deck offers some unique views of Tokyo. One of Tokyo's oldest observation decks, it's not as popular with tourists as newer spots like Tokyo City Hall or Skytree, but it remains popular with amateur photograhers, who set up their tripods on a nightly basis to capture sunset over the city.

The observatory offers a 360-degree wraparound view, and there are plenty of benches, chairs and tables where you can just relax with a coffee or soft drink and enjoy the scenery. There's a big illuminated diorama in the southeast corner identifying the landmarks of Tokyo Bay and Odaiba, and down on the south end there's a small wedding chapel should you need one.

Buy your tickets on the ground floor before taking the elevator, then hand them over when you reach the top. Drink and snack machines are located here at the reception area, and you can take any purchases out onto the observation deck.
