Seaside Top Observatory Overlooking Tokyo

Gloomy Summer Sunsets

By Chris Barnes    - 1 min read

As summer reaches its peak in Tokyo, thunderstorms and haze often roll in to taint the skyline. For many, a clear winter day is the best time to get your money's worth out of an observation deck, but I beg to differ. Haze and thunderstorms often produce a spectacular gloomy atmosphere as the sun sets, one that is best enjoyed from an observation deck.

The Seaside Top Observatory is easily accessible from JR Hamamatsucho Station and open daily from 10:00~20:30.

A little while ago i began exploring the world. I started in Japan, and after 29 countries of amazing adventures, i find myself back in Japan fully absorbed in its culture, its people and its beauty.
