Cocoon tower. The most unusual.
The others look generic.

Mode Gakuen Cocoon Tower, Abeno Harukas, Landmark Tower, Shinjuku Nomura, Izumi Garden, Roppongi Hills, Ark Hills, JR Central... Japanese buildings are really good.

Dentsu Building is very impressive coming from Shin Ohashi Dori.

I think the best skyscrapers in Tokyo are the Tokyo City Hall and Mode Gakuen Cocoon Tower, and the best skyscraper outside Tokyo, the Landmark Tower.

Japanese skyscrapers are not very spectacular. They are just tall, and that's about it. Only the cocoontower has a distinctive look, so that one gets my vote.

i just returned from Japan, and being a skyscraper buff, I tried to visit as many as possible! One thing of note, Japan, and especially Tokyo, has a plethora of amazing and affordable skydecks and observation decks. I must post photos! truly world class.

Overall, one thing that I absolutely noticed was the quality of the buildings. All the skyscrapers I visited were extremely highly finished and well constructed and maintained. Truly astonishing, especially considering the use they get.

In particular, Tokyo Midtown Tower, Opera City, and Roppongi Hills Mori Tower are all in great condition and impeccably maintained. Really beautiful structures.

Shinjuku overall has a bit too much concrete to make it really stunning for me, so Tokyo City Hall and Shinjuku Park Tower don't seem that impressive, although the size of Tokyo City hall certainly is imposing.

By far though, Mode gakuen Cocoon Tower takes the cake. It is (in real life) one of the most beautiful structures I have ever seen. it completely hypnotizes me when I'm in Tokyo and I walk around the whole city with my neck craned trying to see it. Bahahahaha!!!
