Shinjuku: the administrative & commercial center of Tokyo

Shinjuku is the administrative and commercial center of Tokyo. The main reason that Ceddy and I went there was to see Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building (also known as Tokyo City Hall or Tochō). There’s an observation deck on the 45th floor of the south tower, so we were able to see views of Tokyo from 202 meters above the city.

There’s also a restaurant and gift shop on the same floor as the observation deck.
