Seji Togo Museum
Houses a Van Gogh, a few Cezannes, Renoirs and a good collection of Togo Seiji (Japanese painter). The view form the 42 floor is great!
Address: Yasuda Kasai Kaijo, 1-26-1 Nishi Shinjuku

Tokyo Metroplitan Government Building
The best views of the city are for free! Taking as it inspiration Notre Dame de Paris, you’ll find it hard to miss. The building, (left) the fourth tallest in Japan, was finished in 1990. It’s 296 meters high yet is fully earthquake proof. There are two observation galleries, one in each tower at 45 floors up from where the panoramic views are fantastic. On a clear day, you can even Mount Fuji and Yokohama. (Open: Tuesday to Friday 9:30 am to 5:30. Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays 9:30 am to 7:30 pm. Closed: Mondays, Tuesdays (if the day before was a public holiday) December 29th - 31st and January 2nd - 3rd inclusive)

Shinjuku Park Tower
A 52 story example of Japanese postmodern architecture.

Shinjuku Chuo (Central) Park is next to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building. It’s not particularly picturesque, but you may find it socially interesting - much of it is a shanty town inhabited by down and outs. On some Sundays a flea market is held in the entrance.

The I-Land Patio  (below) can be quite surreal at times - the sound of gushing water, piped ambient music; shiny, metallic furniture. But the restaurants have nobody in them; the outside tables have nobody at them! It’s an empty space - quite bizarre for Tokyo.
