Fuji TV Building

Odaiba & Tokyo Bay


Designed by the late, great Kenzō Tange, the Fuji TV headquarters building is easily recognisable by the 1200-tonne orb suspended from the scaffolding-like structure. It's free to take the escalators up to the 7th floor; admission is for the observatories inside the orb.
