As I stayed in the Shiodome area of Tokyo, the subway ride back was quicker than expected with the station just five minutes walk to the hotel. The Royal Park Hotel Shiodome offers an amazing view of the Tokyo Tower and also Mount Fuji far in the back.
When you check in, just ask them for the Tokyo Tower view. At the end of the day, moving around Tokyo would not have been easy if I had not got my Tokyo Metro Subway Day Pass Tickets. It is highly recommended for anyone visiting Tokyo.
