If you want a good view of Tokyo from a high vantage point then, instead of going up the expensive, busy tourist traps of the Skytree or Tokyo Tower, you might go to the Mori Tower in Roppongi Hills. Your ticket to the Mori Art Museum includes admission to the 52nd-floor Tokyo City View Observatory, which gives you a fine view out over the city in every direction. There's a little cafe there, and a shop where you can pick up a souvenir of your visit, while for an extra few hundred yen you can go up two floors to the rooftop SkyDeck and enjoy the open-air panorama.

I came to Japan from Manchester, England in summer 2003, and have travelled a lot since then, around Japan and in Asia. When I`m not working I write satire at www.iothern.blogspot.com and perform stand-up comedy in and around Tokyo. Check my youtube channel `CunningPunster` for a taste.
