  • The World Trade Center Building was used for lunch and shopping quite often, but I had never had a chance to go up to the observatory, so I went up for the first time. I was able to enjoy the view from the observatory, but the influence that the high tower increased besides was one now.

  • I had some free time to get on the plane, so I stopped by. The tables and chairs were well arranged, so I was able to take a leisurely look and take various pictures, so I had a great time. Of course, the night view is the best.

  • Great place to photograph night views of Tokyo, especially Tokyo Tower is right in front of this observatory. This opens from 10:00 am to 8:30 pm almost everyday. Adult admission is 620 yen as of November 2018. I like convenience of this top observatory the best because it's close to the JR Hamamatsucho Station.
  • Absolutely magnificent view. Not expensive and special elevator take you very quickly to the top. Whole city and even ocean can be seen. Don't forget to visit WTC.
