It houses a vast number of shops, restaurants and other entertainment businesses such as a hotel, a convention hall, an aquarium, a planetarium, a museum and even a couple of indoor theme parks.
The Sunshine 60 skyscraper stands at the center of Sunshine City. With a height of 239.7m it was Tokyo's highest building until 1991, when the Tokyo Metropolitan Building was built. The tower features a popular observation deck on its 60th floor, which offers impressive panoramic views of the city and is accessed directly from the ground floor in one of the world's fastest elevators. Access to the observation deck is subject to a fee of 620 Yen.
