This Kenzo Tange-designed soaring building, with its distinctive two towers, was the tallest building in Tokyo until 2006, when it lost its title to the Midtown Tower. The building itself is stunning and even better, there are free observation decks where you get incredible views of the city (the decks are open until 11pm so check them out during the day and at night). The TMGB's purpose is a gargantuan one, which befits the size and scale of the the building; here, the 23 wards, as well as all the towns and villages, of Tokyo are governed.
