In & Around:
This photo taken from Hokutopia Observatory. See location map below.
It is a free observatory and one of the best places to see Shinkansen and all kind of train from above. It is far from action in Tokyo's center area, and because of that, it doesn't have much visitors. You can spend all the time you want there.
Observatory is on 17 floors, It is not a super tall building but it has no tall building around so you will enjoy a wide angle view of Tokyo.
This photo taken with 100mm lens on 1.5 crop sensor ( Pentax K-5 ).
Observatory open hours : 8:30 to 22:00
