Otherwise, it costs a hefty ¥1,500 for adults, ¥1,000 for high-school and university students, and ¥500 for children, so you might as well take in the museum. For an additional ¥300, you can head to the rooftop Sky Deck, the highest open-air observation deck in Japan, where you have unobstructed views over the metropolis.
