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.

  • Was not during this time, currently under construction on the periphery scaffolding had been organized. Looking up from his feet still is overwhelming.

  • The tower is pretty, day and night if you wish, you can visit it but personally I preferred to watch her from downstairs and a ride in the Park right next

  • Fair price although it remains expensive. It is a luxury to afford to see the world from above! Few people however which is a real plus.

  • Must see in Tokyo. Gives you great views of the city skyline. There is also a “glass walk” that is terrifying but fun! You can see hundreds of feet below you as you walk on top of it. I also like how the place had Braille plates. Stayed here for around an hour and that’s about all the time you need. Very family friendly and picturesque.
  • Enclosed area in the observation deck. The main observation deck has a light show that was cool but didn't really make sense. The lower level to the elevator down has some really nice lights. The stores in the tower close a lot earlier than the rest of the tower, but you have to go up before something like 10 pm, so go a bit early if you want to go shopping.
  • Great views of Tokyo from here. Easy to get to by subway with only a short walk through the park. You can buy just the main observation deck or add the top deck experience for a higher view. The top deck has an interesting mirror display but gets a little tight with the crowds. If you are doing the tower I would say do the full thing.
  • A great landmark in the center of Tokyo! For a long time it was the tallest structure. It is painted in the iconic orange and white colors of tall towers in Tokyo. When you go up to the top, there is an audio tour guide in most languages. There is a lot to be learned from listening to the recording. There is a fun exhibit where you can learn about the history of the tower. A breathtaking view from the top!
  • The views here are spectacular! It is worth the price to go to the top deck. The prerecorded audio tour is easy to use. The hospitality upon arrival mid deck is pleasantly surprising as you are given a complimentary drink while waiting for the elevator to take you to the top. The visual and audio tour makes it easy to put together the information with the incredible 360 degree views of Tokyo. The mirrored installation is cool too. There are cool little vendor stalls for shopping as well on the second floor.
