Nestled among the many skyscrapers of the Shinjuku Skyscraper District, this modern tower with a cocoon-inspired design stands out from the pack. While only students may enter the building's upper floors, tourists may enter the lobby for a quick break while exploring the Skyscraper District.
Located a short walk from the West exit of Shinjuku Station. Visitors to the area may also enjoy the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building's 45th-floor observation deck. The deck can be accessed by elevator free of charge.
