Tokyo, with its bustling population of 13 million, boasts a plethora of observation decks that offer breathtaking bird’s-eye views of the city. While the observation deck at the Tokyo Metropolitan Government tower in Shinjuku used to be the most popular due to its free admission, Tokyo now has many other paid and free observation decks that provide equally spectacular vistas.

Here, we’ll introduce you to the must-visit observation decks in Tokyo and provide information on purchasing tickets and getting there. Keep in mind that outdoor observation decks may be closed depending on the weather, so it’s recommended to visit on a clear day if possible. So, let’s find the perfect spot to capture life’s moments!
