Easy to access from the subway (Roppongi), you don't need a tour. There are interesting views from the 52nd floor. You can pay an extra fee to go onto the roof where there is an open air view - however there is a lot of equipment on the roof and you only have a few viewpoints. Still, if you want... More

I enjoyed going to the observation deck. Although somewhat similar to the Tokyo Skytree in terms of the view, you are a little closer to Mount Fuji. The thing Skytree has over Tokyo Tower are the excellent shops at the base of Skytree.

I missed the chance to go there at night time. It was a clear sunny day I went to the 52nd floor of Tokyo City View Tower. Less than 10mins walk from Roppongi metro station, very easy to find your way to Roppongi Hill Mori Tower. I wasn't too lucky finding Mori museum was temporary closed for their next exhibition....

Even the administration fee is not cheap, it is wroth to pay. A very nice night view and Tokyo tower is one of the point to see. I went there around 4 pm and wait for the sunset time which was around 4:30pm. you can see overall view in Tokyo from here.

it is ok, not a must-visit place. You can see better views of Tokyo from other places (that are also free)

Was there to watch the Starry Show cross over 'Your Name'. Admission 1800 yen which was quite expensive and long queue for almost an hour to go up.

The views are great on a clear day. The best time we found was late afternoon as day become night and Tokyo becomes an amazing night city which must not be missed.

Incredible views from the 52nd floor! Highly recommend going up at night time to see all the lights around the city. You really can't grasp how large Tokyo is until you have seen it from above! You can also see Mt Fuji during a clear day which is also nice to witness!

The view from here is absolutely stunning. We went at night and saw the whole city lit up. I can only imagine what it looks like when the sun sets, but I was still very happy with the view we got. There were so many people taking pictures, but I don't feel like any camera can capture the view you... More

Hands down the best view of Tokyo Bay. Facing east, you can see Tokyo Tower, the bay, and Odaiba. This place is so romantic at night that I actually proposed to my fiancee here on New Year's Eve after count-down. The sky was clear and we were able to see the fireworks. It was the perfect setting. Definitely come and... More
