Tokyo Metropolitan Governement Building

From 1991 until 2006, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building in Shinjuku (behind me) held the title of the tallest building in Tokyo. The building is 243 meters high. It surrendered its title upon the completion of the Midtown Tower.

The
Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building (東京都庁舎
), also referred to as Tokyo City Hall, houses the headquarters of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government which comprises not only the 23 wards, but also the cities, towns and villages that make up Tokyo as a whole.

The two top-floor panoramic
observation decks of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building are free of charge to the public … could be a nice idea for tomorrow.
