Towering over Tokyo
There are so many high rise towers in Tokyo, and there are a few options for getting a view from up high in the city. We opted to try out the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Tower Observatories. It’s a nice area to wander around, with several gardens close by and plenty of places for coffee.
It was a pretty hazy day in Tokyo, so we weren’t able to see the mountains beyond the city, but nevertheless a spectacular view – you can even see the trees still with cherry blossom dotted among the park below.
We were in this area at what must have been the beginning of lunch time as there was almost a surge of people streaming out of the buildings in the area into the restaurants, cafes and shops. As you can see here, some people were really in a hurry!
