  • (lively upbeat music)

  • (something springs) (something roars)

  • - Tokyo, one of the world's biggest cities.

  • And what better way to see what a city has to offer

  • than from up high.

  • So today I'm gonna show you some of the best places

  • to see Tokyo, and let's start out with this one behind me.

  • So to get here, take the subway to Tochomae Station,

  • located in the basement of the Tower,

  • or you can a 10 minutes walk from the west exit

  • of JR Shinjuku station and just follow the underground path.

  • So there are two towers which you can look out from

  • and they're both free and the same height.

  • They also have a pretty similar view,

  • so just see which one works with your schedule.

  • Once you've arrived, enter the tower and go to level one.

  • This is where you will the see the sign for the escalator,

  • and then take it up to the 45th floor.

  • Today we will be looking at the view from the north tower.

  • However, both of the towers have souvenir shops

  • and places for you to sit and eat.

  • So this is one of the tallest free

  • observation decks in Tokyo, and it offers a great

  • bird's eye view of the city.

  • You can also see a bunch of famous landmarks,

  • such as Mount Fuji, Tokyo Skytree, Roppongi Hills,

  • Tokyo Tower, Meiji Shrine, and a lot more.

  • And if you have some time on your hands,

  • don't forget to see the spectacular evening and night view.

  • So the next one has got to be

  • my personal favorite on the list.

  • So let's go on in and see what it's like.

  • So this building is located in the 51-story headquarters

  • of Japan's leading advertising company, Dentsu.

  • The nearest train station is Shiodome Station.

  • From there you follow the signs to Caretta Shiodome.

  • Then once you are in the building,

  • take the elevator to the 46th floor.

  • This is where the fun begins.

  • Now, this is one of the reasons why I like

  • this building the best.

  • It's because you can enjoy the view from the elevator.

  • Whoa.

  • Wow, this is fun!

  • So when I first went on this, I was quite surprised

  • at how fast it took off.

  • If you're not so good with heights, it may be a good idea

  • to take a few steps back from the glass.

  • Wow, that's gorgeous!

  • All right, we're here!

  • 46th floor.

  • So the 46th and 47th floor

  • have a number of high-end restaurants.

  • However, even if you don't eat up here,

  • you can still enjoy the view.

  • I love how it has these big giant windows

  • so it lets you see the view from up close.

  • You can see a number of famous spots,

  • like Hamarikyu Gardens, Odaiba in the near distance,

  • the Rainbow Bridge, Tsukiji before it moves,

  • and many, many other things.

  • (lively upbeat music)

  • And you can't miss the night view from here.

  • Transition!

  • So nice to see you guys.

  • So the next view I wanna show you guys

  • is actually not from a building,

  • it's from a train, and it's a bit of a special train

  • because there are no drivers,

  • and it kinda feels like an attraction you ride

  • at a theme park.

  • So let's go ride it and see what kind of views it has.

  • The Yurikamome Line starts from Shimbashi Station

  • and goes to Odaiba,

  • and then finally reaching Toyosu Station.

  • The train is automatically controlled,

  • so passengers can sit in the very front seats of the train

  • and enjoy a nice view of the waterfront area in Tokyo.

  • The Yurikamome Sen runs beside high-rise buildings.

  • It crosses the Rainbow Bridge,

  • and you can also see many neat things along the way,

  • like the big Ferris wheel in Odaiba,

  • and also the Tokyo Big Sight Convention Center.

  • Next we have the Bunkyo Civic Center's cool-looking

  • circular observational deck on the 25th floor.

  • Take the subway to Korakuen or Kasuga Station,

  • and then follow the underground pathway to the building.

  • Then take the elevator to the 25th floor

  • and be amazed by the 270-degree panoramic views

  • from this building.

  • So the Bunkyo Civic Center is in a very central location

  • and you can see a lot of what the city has to offer

  • from here.

  • And on a clear day, you can see Mount Fuji

  • behind the skyscrapers of the Shinjuku District.

  • And on the other side you can get a view

  • of Tokyo Skytree, and you can also get a sneak peek

  • at the attractions offered next door at the Tokyo Dome City.

  • So don't forget to check that out when you're in the area.

  • So the last one is a must-go

  • in the very popular Asakusa area.

  • First take the subway to Asakusa Station,

  • and then follow the signs to the Asakusa Information Center.

  • It's right opposite the Kaminarimon Gate

  • so it's hard to miss.

  • And from there you head to the eighth floor

  • to the viewing deck.

  • And since Asakusa doesn't have many high-rise buildings,

  • you can see a 180-degree panorama view,

  • including a close view of the Skytree,

  • the Sumida River, and the Asahi Beer Tower.

  • And on the other side, you get a great view

  • of the popular Nakamise shopping street

  • and the Kaminarimon Gate.

  • You can also enjoy a meal or a drink at the cafe nextdoor

  • while looking out at the view.

  • So there you go.

  • Five views all in one video and they're all free.

  • So definitely check out some of those if you are in Tokyo,

  • and please comment down below which one you guys

  • like the best.

  • I personally like the Shiodome one.

  • It just has such a spectacular view

  • and I just can't believe it's free.

  • But, yeah, definitely check out some of the views

  • I mentioned in this video and feel free to comment

  • down below about upload videos you guys would like to see
