Peninsula Hotel at Happy Hour

At the top of the Peninsula Hotel is a restaurant with a bar called Peter's. (www.peninsula.com) Between 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m., just in time for sunset, you can enjoy an inexpensive sparkling wine (800 Yen) and overlook the city, including a nice view of Tokyo Tower and the sunset over Hibiya Park.
