[Sightseeing in Tokyo] Free observation tower in Shinjuku [Tokyo Friendly Hostel]

Hi all! This is Ayu from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.

This week I went to Shinjuku for annual medical check, and the place was right next to one of those free observation tower...

Yes, that is Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building?!

141024-11.jpg
Did you know they have a free observation room?
It's located on the 45th floor, 202 meter high!

They have 2 towers, North and South, and this time I went up the North tower.
Here's the view!

141024-9.jpgI wished it was not rainy... X(

The North Observation also has a souvenir shop and restaurant.

141024-6.jpg141024-7.jpg
The difference of North and South tower is that North has more shops and south has wider view.
You have to go back to the 1st floor to visit another one, but please visit both if you have time.
What is good about this observation is you can also enjoy the night view because North tower is open by 11 pm (entrance by 10:30 pm).
I've been there at night before, of course on a day with clear sky, and it was so beautiful!!

After you go back to the 1st floor, there's a good place to get information on sightseeing in Tokyo.

141024-4.jpgThat is Tokyo Tourist Information Center, where I used to work before!
They have many brochures from all over Tokyo, in Japanese, English or in other languages, and staffs at the counter will answer your questions in different languages too.

141024-5.jpgOn the 2nd floor, they have another information 'Japanese Prefectural Promotion Center'.

141024-3.jpg
In their shelves,?you can find many kinds of brochures from all over Japan. (mostly in Japanese but some are in other languages)?

141024-1.jpgAs it is 'Japanese Prefectural Promotion Center', they often have a fair to sell the local specialities from different prefecture in Japan.
On that day, various kinds of seafood from Toyama prefecture had been sold there.?


141024-2.jpgLast of all, I will tell you one secret spot to eat in this building...?

That is their cafeteria!
It was originally for workers in the building, but is now open to public too.
Both North and South tower have one each on the 32nd floor, and you can enjoy lunch in reasonable price with a good view!

141024-10.jpgWell, this is all for today!
As I was working in this area for 2 years, please ask me anytime about West Shinjuku :D

See you around♪

【Odawara Castle】- Beautiful castle near by Hakone. Please get there with Hakone.

Hello!! Everyone.

This is Yima from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.

I really think about 'Shonan' this area is very nice.

There is sea and beach and highway and mountain etc...

Can you see the Hakone Mountains over there?

I took this picture from highway parking and there is sea behind me.

I stopped at the Odawara Castle for a while before I went to home.

It is very amazing isn't it??

I vary like this appearance and I think Japanese Castle is the representative of Japanese Calture.

So I want to go to see a Japanese Castle more,

It's said that Himeji Castle in Hyogo is the most beutaiful one in Japan.

But unfortunately Himeji Castle has been fixed now.

It hard to say what time it is finished specifically.

But I want to see it some day.

There is a Japanese garden around castle.

This is the view from platform of the castle.

It was higher than I expected.

Traditional Japanese Style Meal.

This is the main dish!!

I like fresh fish very much!!

A quick guide to Sake

Basically, sake is a brewed rice beer. (Though much more alcoholic than beer.) It is usually called Nihonshu in Japan, not sake. To find good sake, you need to look for Junmai or pure rice sake (with nothing else added). The characters for Junmai (純米)should appear somewhere on the bottle. 12204969283_1a8ce72840_z.jpg
