Mori Tower Sky Deck

11 years ago by in Travel Tagged:


Whether you’re just visiting Tokyo or a long-term resident of the city, at some point it’s well worth taking a trip to the roof of the 54-floor Mori Tower, Roppongi Hills. The view from 270 metres above the city is just stunning. On a clear day Mt. Fuji is easily visible to the West, and if you visit just before sunset you can watch the gradual transformation of the metropolis into a sea of lights.

Make sure you wrap up warm though – it can get pretty chilly up there on the roof!
