Symbolic of Japan’s economic rebirth after World War II, Tokyo Tower stands proudly at a height of 333 m (1,092.5 ft), defining the Tokyo skyline with its orange and white stripes. This lattice steel tower, modeled on the Eiffel Tower, holds a communications tower and two observation decks. Reach the decks by elevator or by climbing the 600 stairs to take in a view of the city below. Directly beneath the tower, visit the four-story building that houses restaurants, souvenir shops, and an indoor amusement park.

  • Tokyo has its own version of the Eiffel Tower. It is painted white and red, but it is very similar except for the long lines. Once at top you get a great view of thi wander full city.  more »

  • Definitely worth it. Go at night to see the best city night view. For a person that is scared of elevators. This was very well put together. Heights are nothing to be scared of here. Everything is secure. Staff is so friendly and cute! I love their outfits!!I would post a picture but I don't want to ruin the fun!
  • Tokyo Tower reinforces how incredibly vast Tokyo is. Sky scrapers as far as the eye can see. The Main Deck is much larger than the top, with a gift shop, but the top deck offers the best panorama available. You don't realize how tall everything is from up high, but on the main deck everything is put into perspective. Absolutely incredible experience. Day time offers an entirely different world than at night.
  • We hadn't planned on going up to the observation deck, but are glad we did. It was 900¥ each ticket, but well worth it. It was night time during the holiday season when we went, so the lights were mesmerizing. I would recommend trying to go during the evening time when the lights are visible and the surrounding horizon is visible as well. I wasn't aware when I went that Tokyo tower is not the largest tower in Tokyo. Sky Tree is the second largest structure in the world, and largest tower in the world. I feel that's something others should consider when visiting. Overall, lovely experience!
  • You have to visit Tokyo tower. It is a symbol of Tokyo, Japan. Of course, Sky tree was established a few years ago but Tokyo tower is still meaningful of every travellers. Actually, it is not good as observatory to Tokyo city because there are so many taller buildings than Tokyo tower but it is nice for you to watch near location in both daytime and night time. In anniversary days, you can see other colors tokyo tower. Have a good trip!
  • Worth a look. Great view from the higher viewing platform of the 2 available. It was great to hear the history and awesome to be able to get your bearings and enjoy the expanse of human development that is Tokyo.... We went a little before sunset, which turned out to be a double bonus with all the lights at nightfall. They dont rush you out once you are up there, which allows you to chill and enjoy the visual feast for as long as you like.... Check it out if you have the time and inclination.
