Among the most incredible modern constructions to be visited is Tokyo's city hall, which was built at the beginning of the 1990s. Built by the star of Japanese architecture, Kenzo Tange, the Metropolitan Government Building, where the employees are responsible for more than just Tokyo, was built with Paris' Notre-Dame Cathedral in mind. Each one of its towers, both rising 202m, has an observation deck (accessible for free) where visitors can enjoy the superb panoramas (especially at sunset) of the city all the way out to the horizon, where you can make out the silhouette of Mount Fuji.
