Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building 東京都庁
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building (Tochō) is located in Shinjuku. It has the benefit of an observation deck which is free for anyone to visit. When the weather is just right during the day, you can see Mount Fuji. It's also pretty at night when you can see the lights of the city twinkling below you, and even Tokyo Tower glowing in the distance.

I went during a public holiday so it was so packed I couldn't get to the windows.
If you can find a quiet day to go, I'd highly recommend it.
You can't go wrong with a completely free view of Tokyo, right?
This is a fantastic spot! It's conveniently located within walking distance from Shinjuku station and has free admission, and gives you some pretty spectacular views of the city. Not quite as dizzying as the Skytree but considering it's free you can't go wrong! Plus they have a wee souvenir shop. Definitely worth a visit.
Beautiful Free view of Tokyo! Definitely worth a visit. It gets crowded on weekends but just wait a little for the view. There is also a souvenir shop at the observatory and a few seats for you to take a rest.
