#3 of 3,862 in Things to do in Tokyo
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.

  • Might be nice sky, still located in the heart of Tokyo Tower and the atmosphere there. And the beauty of the geometric pattern of the Tower, is beautifully lit up at night. Say I have stacked there in the hearts of the Japanese. See Tokyo Tower in Tokyo and came to Tokyo! It will be.

  • An iconic tourist attraction and It didn't disappoint. Good views of Tokyo and you will be amazed at how they can fit all the skyscrapers in the city. I went on a very good day and was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of Mt. Fuji. It is not the highest building in Tokyo or the newest but it has its charm. I would highly recommend coming here if you are visiting Tokyo.
  • The iconic Tokyo Tower is a must to visit. I would recommend to visit it around one or two hour before sunset so that you can see the Tokyo Tower light up at night, up close. There are a lot of souvenir, snack, and food stores in the mall below it. You can stock up your souvenirs or snacks to bring back to your family and friends here. There is also a One Piece indoor theme park, but I did not get the chance to go in.
  • Reminiscent to the Eiffel Tower of France, the Tokyo Tower of Japan is an iconic symbol of a city, and a country, that is very proud of its heritage. This magnificent, fluorescent architectural structure stands above a country rich in history, and culture, a marvel to witness as one visits the amazing capital of a beautiful nation. As you climb onto the tower, watch as it illuminates in the night sky, surrounded by a sea of neon lights from below, the Pacific coast to the East, and the gargantuan geological symbol of Japan, Mount Fuji, to the West. It will be a visit to remember.
  • It is iconic and the view isn't bad. It was worth the price of admission to see a little more of Tokyo and to say I'd been there, but strolling through the parks was much more enjoyable. Like so many things it's also a tourist trap. There's a 'theme park' on the tower and a number of fast food options and gift stores.
  • Wonderful landmark to visit. Not as tall or new as Skytree, but in many ways the views were better as you could see more detail. It was a bit of a time capsule in that it is so well preserved and had a real 1960s-70s vibe going on. Went early in the morning before the rush and enjoyed a quiet coffee in the cafeteria with a spectacular view. Definitely worth a visit, even if you've been to Skytree.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi.
