You can actually see Fuji mountain somewhere far. The view is as good as it can be from a central Tokyo building. It is free of charge and not at all crowded (went on a working day at 9 am)

One of the best free viewpoints of Tokyo. Just walk inside and take an escalator to the top for the 180degree view. In clear weather Fuji can also be seen far away. The sky tree can also be seen. Restaurant available as well.

It has a certificate says you can see the 富士山, but too sad the day we went was cloudy day. We didnt get to the top of the Skytree, since it's too expensive. The best part of this part is that its totally free.

Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around
the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in
Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a
photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old
Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this
day, and there are long-standing restaurants with
geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
