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

  • 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.
