Found in the Nishi-Shinjuku area of Shinjuku, this building is the administrative center of metropolitan Tokyo. On the 45th floors of this 243-meter tall structure are free-to-enter observation decks (one in each of the towers). From the decks, you can see Tokyo Tower, Skytree, and even Mt. Fuji on clear days.
