Mar/27 - May/6, 2020 333 Koinobori and a giant Sanmanobori at Tokyo Tower 3.4
from 3/27 '20 to 5/6 '20
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.

I love this Tower for view reason's.
One of them is the entire One Piece museum inside. The idea is extraordinary and very surprising.
Tokyo Tower has also beautiful view on the city and the entrance is much cheaper than the Eiffel Tower in Paris. I like Tokyo Tower so much more. Defenedly a must see place here in Tokyo!

Beautiful scenery and excellent staff. They have an excellent AR, I think that's what you call it, virtual guide that speaks to you location based on the tower. Many languages offered! It tells you the history and information at the places you're looking at.
I paid the ¥3000 for the big tour. It was worth it.
After going to the top and coming down I reccomend walking down the stairs instead of the elevator. It's really cool to be "exposed" to out side! It feels like you're a part of the history! You can walk up the stairs to but I was too lazy for that.
I enjoy this place more than the sky tree. It feels more real Japan than the sky tree.

A must see if in Tokyo. There’s a shrine close by where you can take great pictures whilst having Tokyo Tower in the background. A great juxtaposition between the old and the new. If you can, you should definitely buy a ticket to go up.

It was amazing to visit during the Covid-19 pandemic in March. The city from above was magnificent, the stuff was very helpful, kind and cute (as almost everywhere in Tokyo, but still, I'm still surprised how kind everyone is in Japan) and the building was gorgeous!

Beautiful view of urban areas of Tokyo from main and top observation decs. Shape of the tower is inspired by Eiffel Tower, as of now it is a second tallest structure in Japan after Sky Tree.
Wax museum, few restaurants and souvenir shops on the lower floor. Ticket price for an adult to reach the top deck - 3000 JPY.
