About Bunkyo Civic Center Observation Deck

Bunkyo Civic Center Observation Deck

The Observation Deck, located on the 25th floor of the Bunkyo Civic Center (approximately 105 meters above ground level), offers a 330-degree panoramic view of the city.
Mount Fuji, the Chichibu Mountains(Saitama Prefecture), and Mount Tsukuba (Ibaraki Prefecture) in the daytime when the air is clear, and the night view of Tokyo, including the Tokyo Sky Tree and the buildings of Shinjuku and Ikebukuro, can be seen at night.

Since the Bunkyo Civic Center Observation Deck is not as well known as the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building Observation Deck in Shinjuku, the advantage of the Bunkyo Civic Center Observation Deck is that visitors can enjoy the view at a leisurely pace.
