Located at one of the largest buildings in the world, the popular 54-story Roppongi Hills Mori Tower in Minato, which was established in 2003 by builder Minoru Mori is know for its office space.
But also located in this skyscraper is the Mori Art Museum on the 53rd floor and on the 52nd and 54th floor are two observation decks.
Of the large buildings in Tokyo with the best view, I would say that Tokyo City View Observation Deck is my second best (#1 goes to the World Trade Center Tokyo building).
While Tokyo City View opens at 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sundays through Thursday and Friday and Saturdays (including days preceding holidays) which the observation deck closes at 1 a.m. The Sky Deck opens at 11 am and closes at 8 pm.
The regular price for adults is Y1,800 and an additional Y500 to get into Sky Deck. Children, students and seniors get a discount.
But certain convenience stores sell discounted tickets for Y1,500.
The first step while coming to the tower is going to the “Museum Cone” entrance.
Elevators take a long time, because of the foot traffic. So, you can go up the stairs or wait a little while for access to the elevators.
The reason why I put this tower as second when it comes to seeing the Tokyo landscape is mainly because you are restricted to one area for photography. At the World Trade Center, you have all four sides of the building to shoot from and it only cost Y800.
Tokyo City View Observation Deck also has lights that reflect from the windows, where as WTC lights are turned off within the observation deck.
But the main thing that your Tokyo City View ticket provides you is access to other exhibits in the tower. So, that is probably the most awesome thing that your ticket gets you and it should, considering how much one has to pay.
Overall, the Tokyo City View Observation Deck is no doubt a very cool place to visit. It has an awesome view of Tokyo Tower from the distance and it’s great to catch the sunset.
