Gorgeous Views from Roppongi Hills

Photography Tokyo Skytree Observation Deck Tokyo Roppongi

Comparing computer-generated graphics to real-life photographs may seem absurd, but as computer imaging continues to improve, the effects from CG are stunning. These photos taken from the top of the Roppongi Hills observation deck are the perfect examples of real images that almost look like CG art!

The photos and short messages were Tweeted by @tokyo_cityview, the official Twitter account for Roppongi Hills’ observation deck and Sky Deck, as well as news about events held at the tower. We imagine it’s hard to get bad photos when your view is 250 meters (820 ft) above sea level and this gorgeous!

"A pink and purple sky set against Tokyo Tower and Tokyo Skytree."

"In the morning it looked gloomy and overcast as if it was going to rain, but the day was surprisingly sunny."

"It's been a while since it's been so clear to the point where you can see Mount Fuji peeking over the hills."

Of course, you don’t have to wait around Twitter to see more of this view — you can check it out yourself at Roppongi Hills!
