Mar/25 - May/9, 2021 333 Koinobori and a giant Sanmanobori at Tokyo Tower 3.4
from 3/25 '21 to 5/9 '21
At the 333 meter tall landmark of Tokyo, Tokyo Tower,
333 colorful koi-nobori (carp streamers) and a giant Sanma-nobori (saury streamer) are swimming in the sky. This traditional springtime event is on till 5/May.
Koinobori, meaning carp banner or carp streamer are carp shaped wind stocks flown to celebrate Tango-no-sekku, a traditional calendar event (now designated a national holiday, Children’s Day, 5th of May).
Landscapes across Japan are decorated with koinobori from April to early May, in honor of children for a good future and in the hope that they will grow up healthy and strong.
The Japanese consider carp the most spirited fish -- so full of energy and power that it can fight its way up swift-running streams and cascades.
In addition, Koinobori and Tokyo Tower are illuminated with 12 LED searchlights from 5 p.m. - 11 p.m.

This was an amazing experience; if you do one thing if you're in Tokyo this should be it. This is iconic; just like the Empire State building is to NYC, the Eiffel Tower is to Paris, and Big Ben to London, Tokyo tower is the same to well... Tokyo. Great gift shop for souvenirs, great place to get a quick bite while taking in the sites, even though it's a bit pricey to go up you gotta go at least once. All in all it was an Amazing experience.

Well illuminated Tokyo tower basking in the orange and white glow of its hues is a sight to behold in the night time skyline of the city. The guided tour of the tower is designed in an innovative way to give you the taste of the history attached with it. The hospitality of the staff is remarkable. Some of the staff is English speaking as well. There are two types of tickets: one fort he middle deck only and the second for the top deck. If you have bought the top deck ticket you have to change the elevator at the middle deck and you have to do it quick because there is a time slot for doing that.

Get a chance to see the city of Tokyo from one of the most famous observatory towers in the world, the Tokyo Tower. This tower is also known as the ‘Eiffel Tower of Japan.’ Standing on it, you can enjoy a spectacular and a breath-taking view of the city, making your trip to Tokyo an unforgettable one.
Additionally, this tour ticket also enables access to the One Piece Tower. The theme park here is truly amazing, and definitely a place for you if you are an anime love. You can enjoy the comic culture of Tokyo by visiting this park and make the most of your trip.
The tour is valid for one day only and is not a guided one.

Don't kid yourself: the Tokyo Tower IS a tourist trap. But I had to visit anyway to complete my "Two Towers" Bucket List Achievement (the other being, of course, its near-identical twin, the Eiffel Tower). Like all towers in major metropolises, you will pay more than you want to for the view, and will probably leave with at least one souvenir. Heck, I've done it twice myself. But the adventure of navigating Tokyo's spaghetti-like subway system, and the above ground approach to the tower (especially at twilight, when the tower burns a brilliant orange) will sear itself into your memory for a lifetime. I'll probably do it again on my fourth trip to Tokyo.

This is one of the symbols of Japan! I know it was built long time ago and Sky Tree is more popular recently but I love the perfect figure and the cool colour. I love to see the views from the observation floor in daytime and nighttime. I love this place and this place made me cry somehow. I personally love Tokyo Tower so much than Sky Tree! I will be back someday.
