Tokyo Tower, Minato

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.

  • What a great place to see most of Tokyo from high up. This is bigger then the Eiffel Tower and is a must see spot when visiting Tokyo. You can see this from almost everywhere in Tokyo.  more »
  • Worth a visit to see just how large Tokyo city is. On a clear day you can supposedly see Mt Fuji? There is a cafe on one of the levels and of course all sorts of souvenir and food shops. Great Anime s...  more »

  • Sunset Visit... (150m Viewing Deck) Arrived for 4.30pm, short lift ride to the viewing deck. Wait around for an hour and watched the sunset, lights of the city pipe up. Mt Fuji was visible with a cracking red sun set. On the way down "exit through the gift shops", and boy what a maze of curios and food shops. All in all 900y well spent.
  • One Piece!!! And a great view! The view is amazing and the tower is lit up beautifully. I also saw live singing of Jazz music on one of the upper floors, which was enjoyable. Not sure how often they do that, but there seem to be regular attractions taking place at the tower. Of course, I'm a big fan of the anime One Piece. When the One Piece restaurant Baratie in Odaiba closed permanently at the end of September, 2016, I was sad and thought that the only One Piece themed restaurant, but I was wrong! Yay! I came to Tokyo Tower for some great pictures and a view of the city, but I didn't know that it is also a One Piece themed tower! Luffy and his pirate crew have taken over the symbol of Tokyo, and it's so fun. They have fantastic souvenir shops with stuff from all over Japan, not just anime related. There are lots of Japan shirts, Hello Kitty items, toys, nick knacks, snacks, post cards, cheap one layer kimono robes, model samurai swords and all kinds of other stuff. There is also a One Piece live show attraction and play areas for kids. There are multiple cafes and restaurants, but of course I couldn't resist eating at the Mugiwara Café, the One Piece themed restaurant at the tower. There are fun character themed sets and decorations around and music from the show. It's a little pricy as far as food, but the food I had was pretty good. We all know the price comes with a themed experience. I think it was worth it. Lots of fun, especially if you like One Piece!
  • Great place to see the city. I went early at just before 12pm on a Monday so it wasn't too busy. Also a great place for souvenir shopping on the 2nd level for those looking to kill two birds with one stone. Smaller than the Skytree but much cheaper and still with great views.
  • Its nice, a bit old compared to tokyo skytree, but at half the cost of skytree I can't complain. Skipped the one piece exhibit since I'm not a big fan. Bummed I missed the Dragonball exhibit though.
  • We visited for the Tokyo One Piece exhibit.. There are several different side show attractions to experience. Just prepare yourself for a wait longer than 1 hour. We only got to play a couple... Brooks haunted house and the Chopper thousand sunny tours. All rides were free and covered by the entrance fee. One thing we did miss out on was the live action show that is held. Unfortunately we were not aware of the per-requisite to scan our ticket for a seat. So we missed out... However, there was a really amazing 4D experience between the battles of Luffy and all his past foes. It is something you have to experience!
