To 6/May. 333 koinobori and a giant sanmanobori at Tokyo Tower 3.4
from 3/29 '19 to 5/6 '19
At the 333 meter tall landmark of Tokyo, Tokyo Tower,
333 koinobori (carp banner) and a giant Sanmanobori (saury banner) 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.

Visited during a rainy day and it was great pleasure. Its breathtaking view from the top floor, the whole city. It's a great landmark for Japan. The bottom view from the Top floor is real thrilling. Its main purpose is for Television and Radio Antenna.
It's a master piece of architecture with a height approximately 333meters. It was built in the year of 1958. To comply safety regulation its painted in International orange color.
There are two stages of observation level available. The first observation is at 150 meters and the next is 250 meters. In the basement you can see museum, shops, restaurant etc. Neat and clean restroom also available.
Its wonderful experience and worth to visit

I absolutely enjoyed capturing pictures from the top deck of the Tokyo Tower, which effortlessly displayed the magnificent city. The panoramic views from the deck observatory were very breathtaking, to say the least! I was mesmerized by the views from the tower, as well as the tower itself. The tour is definitely something that you should add to your,Things to Do List, when visiting Tokyo! I guarantee you won't be disappointed, as I surely was not!

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.

This tower is pretty impressive both on top and outside, especially at night. The views are totally impressive and you’ll be blown away at the sheer size and towers in Tokyo, it’s quite the experience. The staff are super nice, although I found that none of them really spoke much English. luckily they have these audio guides so you can select any language. The 350m observatory is a little small and cramped but you do get a very nice view from there. There’s a glass floor if you’re feeling adventurous, I took a jump and I’m still alive.
