Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building (東京都庁舎)
Opening Hours 8am – 6.45pm, Monday to Friday
Designed by master architect Kenzo Tange, this impressive complex is the headquarters of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government. Tange was inspired to make the building look like a computer microchip, while gothic cathedral elements of the towers add to its grandeur. There are two observatories within that offer panoramic views of the futuristic Shinjuku neighbourhood and beyond.
