    Free Observation Tower!

    View from the observation tower

    At the huge Metropolitcan Government office in West Shinjuku are two observation towers on the 45th floor.

    They're free to go up, and well worth visiting. One of the few free attractions in town.

    Japanese name called "i-cho" and it's leaf will turn yellow in November. Popular place to spot the scene is in Meiji Jingu gaien. Shinjuku Gyoen is also a good place to visit.

    Nightshot of Shinjuku

    Take a elevator ride to the viewing floor (can't remember which floor exactly) for a nice view of Shinjuku area.

    Best of all, its FREE !!!

    Take in the Night view in Shinjuku

    Shinjuku at night

    The tall buildings shine both at night and during the day.

    Some parts of Shinjuku can be rather quiet at night. The skyscrapers are both formidable and beautiful in the moonlight.

    Shinjuku

    The classic Jack of all trades. Shinjuku isn't all that great by day but the night is where you go to see the neon and the nightlife beneath it. The train station is one of the busiest in the world.
