Very efficient free trip to the 45th floor for a grandstand view of the Tokyo skyline - go at sunset on a clear day to see the sun going down over Mount Fuji.

dont forget your travel book and stamp it there. The views at sunset are impressive but be there with some anticipation as lines can be long and you will miss the sunset . No more than 15 minutes anyway.
