| Tokyo City View|
Melissa says 14 years ago
|When we arrived in Tokyo we were given the option to visit the Tokyo City View or the Tokyo Tower to see a view of the city. Our guide explained that the observation deck at the city view at Roppongi Hills was higher than the one at the tower so that was the one we selected. The location was very easy to get to by the subway system, but it seemed very expensive (1,500 yen, which did include the art museum on the same floor). |
We were very lucky and the day was clear so we were able to see Mt. Fuiji, however if you have a hotel room several floors up (we did in Asakusa and Ginza) you will have the same view. Another downside was that the floor to ceiling windows made the desk VERY hot. With the help of our guide we were able to see key sites, however after 5 minutes we had seen all that there was to see. We did visit the art museum, and if you are a modern art fan then it is a very good stop and helps make the ticket price a little more bareable.
