Caretta Shiodome is a shopping and dining complex smack-bang in the middle of the high-rise offices and swanky hotels of Shiodome.

During the rest of the year, take the elevator to the 46th and 47th floors for Caretta Shiodome’s “SKY VIEW” observation area. From the windows you’ll have 200 meter-high views of the Rainbow Bridge, Tokyo Skytree, Tokyo Tower, Imperial Palace and more. Chairs and benches are provided so you can relax and take in the view, and best of all—it’s free!
