Fuji Television headquarters in Odaiba is most famous for the odd ball that hangs in the air in the middle of the buildings top floors. The structure of the orb is actually a viewing platform at the 25th floor of the Kenzo Tange-designed Fuji Television Building, where a 360-degree panoramic view of Tokyo Bay and the surrounding Odaiba neighborhood is available.
