Year in and year out, the Land of the Rising Sun particularly its capital city, Tokyo attracts hundreds of thousands of globetrotters and travel enthusiasts from different parts of the globe. Majority of these foreign tourists come to visit the country in order to enjoy the country’s beautiful sightseeing spots, experience its unique culture and try out some iconic Japanese dishes.


In this regard, Japan is considered as the top tourist destination not only in Asia but all over the world. With the influx of foreign tourists in the country, more and more establishments improved their buildings and facilities in order to cater to foreign food and travel enthusiasts.


Among the most well loved tourist spots in Japan is the city of Tokyo which showcases the rich culture and tradition of the country as well as advancements in Japanese technology. The best way to appreciate the city is by visiting the observation decks intended to give a perfect view of the cityscape.


To further promote tourism in the city, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government has established an observation deck that is free of charge and open for both local and foreign tourists who would like to take a look at the spectacular view of Tokyo. The building has forty eight stories and is surrounded by the skyscrapers of Shinjuku district which is one of the busiest areas in the city. Other observatory structures in the city would cost around $30 per trip but the local government of Tokyo provides this one of a kind experience for free.

Since the tower has a very accessible location at Shibuya Scramble Square, foreign tourists who would like to check out the Tokyo tower may also take pictures of Mt Fuji from the said view during a clear peaceful weather or perhaps look down to check out the busy intersection crossing of the Shibuya district.
