The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings have become the face of the West Side of Shinjuku Station. You can see all of Tokyo from the popular 202-meter high observation decks, located on the 45th floor of Main Building No. 1. We recommend the South Observation Deck during the day, as you can see toward the popular Odaiba entertainment district. There is also a café where you can get light snacks. The North Observation Deck, which is open until 10:30 p.m., is great for enjoying Tokyo at night, complete with drinks at the deck's café and bar, where a variety of alcoholic drinks are available.
