Roof Deck at Tokyo City View

Roppongi is very popular area in Tokyo for foreign visitors. Sometimes I can see more foreign people than Japanese especially at night.

Just two minutes walk from Roppongi intersection to Shibuya area, there is a large skyscraper which name is “Roppongi Hills”. It is the tallest building in Roppongi area which has 54 stories and its height is 238 meters.

The 52th is observatory floor which name is “Tokyo City View”. There are no surroundings at this height, so it has pure 360° view. Of course you can look down Tokyo Tower and Rainbow Bridge in Odaiba.

There is a admission for Tokyo City View. The regular ticket price for an adult is 1,800 yen. This fare includes the entry fare for “Mori Art Museum” which located at 53th floor.

Now the building management have released the roof top (Sky Deck) to the Tokyo City View visitors with extra 500 yen. You must go if the weather is fine. It is worth more than the extra admission.


Here there is no glass window that partitions the outside. You can also enjoy a spectacular view with the fresh air of 238 meters high.
