If you visit Shinjuku, don't forget to visit the area around Nishi-Shinjuku, where skyscrapers stand side-by-side. You are likely to be awed by the massive skyscrapers. Every building has an observatory or restaurant and is convenient for travelers to drop by. Consider a trip to take in a view of Tokyo.
View the Tokyo Scenery from a Triangular Building
Shinjuku Sumitomo Building is 210 meters high and is often referred to as the "triangle building" for its triangular shape. There is a free observatory on the 51st floor and you can view Mt. Fuji on a sunny day. There are restaurants on the 48th to 52nd floors serving a variety of cuisines from French, Italian, teppan-yaki steak (steak cooked on an iron griddle), and kaiseki (traditional Japanese multi-course meal) to casual izakaya (Japanese-style bar) dining. Dinner while enjoying the evening scenery is recommended.
