Rainbow Bridge
(10)
Rainbow Bridge is very similar in structure to the Golden Gate in San Francisco. You can get to Odaiba Island by car, train or monorail from the city of Tokyo. The most impressive thing for me is to see it at night. Everything is lit up around you and the thousands of colourful barges that can be rented for parties fill up the Sumida river. If you go to any of the restaurants in Odaiba overlooking the bay is simply magical.

Fuji TV Building
(4)
Fuji TV is an institution of Japanese television, and the building in Tokyo is a real wonder of modern architecture. There are only a few days a year when you can visit the offices and studios and climb to the top of the metal ball to enjoy the amazing views of Tokyo Bay and the Rainbow Bridge. I recommend going up at about five o'clock then waiting an hour to see how the landscape of the city is completely transformed as dark falls. It's not as high as the observation deck of the Tokyo Tower, but its located on the other side of the bay makes for some truly unique views. Admission is 500 yen, and you can drink in a bar there. Inside the ball they have built a concert stage and sometimes TV shows are recorded there.

Shishiiwa Viewpoint
(3)
If you enjoy majestic views of the inland sea, you absolutely must climb Mount Misen. You can continue up to the summit which is about 100 meters above this viewpoint. This really isn't even necessary because the views from there are already incredible. The site can be accessed on foot or in a cable car. I would have loved to walk up the hill and enjoy the virgin forest, but I enjoyed uploading a rented bikes and we parked in front of one of the most interesting, Momijidani Park, which Valley is Japanese maples, and should be even more impressive in autumn ... But the heat was unbearable that day and so don't even try walking. The rise in the cable car is not very expensive, are about 15 euros round trip, and the views are amazing, but if you go with good weather and you enjoy hiking, well worth doing at least some of the walking steps. Besides temples you meet along the way. With a little luck you stumble upon any of the monkeys living on the island, and it seems to be common to find, though I had no luck. Yes, darling, you have the hand very long ;) For me, a must if you're going to Miyajima.
Viewpoints in Yokohama
Sky Garden
In the 69th floor of the Landmark Tower, you can find the Sky Garden. The entrance fee cost us 1000 yen, but it was certainly worth it, especially because of the fast elevator travel. In fact, its 45 km / h make the elevators of the Landmark Tower one of the world's fastest elevators. From the top, the views of Yokohama Bay are fabulous. We were very impressed with the amount of heliports that were over the skyscrapers. They also say that on a clear day you can see Tokyo, Mount Fuji and Izo-Hanto, but we weren´t so lucky with the weather, due to the pollution. In addition to the views, the Sky Garden is decorated with striking marine theme. Blue tones, goldfish hanging from the ceiling and some aquariums with some species not seen in life. They also have a "terrace" in which I enjoyed a beer from Yokohama.

Enoshima Viewpoints
Throughout our whole journey on the island of Enoshima you can find many lookouts to observe the beauty of the ocean to reach the shores of the island. You can find them at different heights and points to see the differences in the corners. The viewpoint is 360 degrees in the lighthouse tower.

Mt.Fuji 5th Station
(1)
We took a bus tour with JapaniCan to the fifth station in order to get a glimpse of Mt. Fuji. In many ways we were extremely lucky as we did see the top after many days of cloud cover. However unless you are going to the fifth station to start the ascent or you wish to buy one of the fabulous cakes in the shape of Mt Fuji, there are perhaps better ways to enjoy this sacred mountain. In the end, the fifth station is just a busy car park and there are better spots for Fuji viewing, Hakone is highly recommended. Nevertheless we did get a free lucky longevity bell from the gift shop (the priest at the back of the shop hands them out to tour parties with vouchers).
