Contrasted to other towers, this one offers an open-air view of the city. First go to the 52nd glass-covered floor, follow the Sky Deck sign, leave your stuff in a locker (take a camera and a phone) and take another elevator (this was not so evident, as there is an observation deck on the floor too) to reach a roof with a helicopter deck all covered in wooden boards (that's where the name comes from). You will see all the city's wards – Shinjuku, Shinagawa and Odaiba but the best panorama is of the eastern part with Tokyo Tower and Tokyo Bay. In the north, you will spot a newly built Sky Tree. The magic experience costs Y500.
