If you want to get your bearings, Tokyo Tower is a first place to start your tour in the city. This 333m-high tower was erected in 1958 to serve as a TV and radio broadcast antenna and has since been the main symbol and attraction of the capital city. The majestic form in red and white stands out beautifully in night illumination.

The main observatory at 150m and the special observatory at 250m offer panoramic views over the metropolis and, weather permitting, as far as Boso Peninsula and Mount Fuji. The souvenir shop on the tower base (2nd floor) is filled with Tokyo specialties, some of which are limited to this shop. Around the tower are parks and greenery space where you can enjoy a happy stroll on a fine day.

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.

I was a little dubious about the value of going up yet another tall.city building. It was actually quite a fun evening. They do the getting you up there but quite well. So although there are a few stops along the way they hand out an audio guide in your language and it is quite informative (this is for the "tour to the top" ticket). And the views over the city at night were wonderful.
It is of course fairly expensive but if you are in the area and it is getting dark I would recommend it if you've got the spare money. There are definitely better bang for your buck experiences if money is getting tight though.

Quite nice 360 panoramic views over two levels. The lower level is slightly less crowded but the view is just as good. There’s also a glass window that you can look down through. Came during day time. There’s a souvenir shop but our tour guide said to not even bother shopping there because it’s way over priced. On the ground floor there are fish banners streamed overhead and a small archway of flowers and lights which is nice to take Instagram-type photos with

Nice lighting. Good views of the city. A cute point is the Japan post booth with Tokyo tower stamp than you can get stamped on your ticket, scrap book, etc.
Acrylic floor window gives a peek at the height you're standing at when the people at the base of the tower appear like ants. That's a cool part!

When it was completed in 1958, it was the tallest communications tower in the world. It now functions as the back-up broadcasting tower of Tokyo Sky Tree.

Tokyo tower still keeps its exterior elegance, and many of the people still prefer to visit here rather than Tokyo Sky Tree.

Shall we enjoy the panoramic view of Tokyo from the observation deck?

Ever in Tokyo see Tokyo Tower, Tokyo sky tree now appear, but Tokyo, Tokyo Tower is always an indelible symbol. When sunny, on the tower is expected to Mount Fuji, Yokohama area, Miura peninsula, and Boso-hanto views. Late in the afternoon, more and more people come to Tokyo Tower, the tower can look to the romantic charm of Tokyo at night, let us forget.

来东京一定要去看看东京塔,虽然现在出现了东京天空树,但是东京塔永远是东京不可磨灭的象征。晴天的时候,在塔上可望到富士山和横滨地区、三浦半岛、房总半岛的景致。到了傍晚时分,来东京塔的人越来越多,在塔上能望到东京浪漫迷人的夜景,让人流连忘返。

Often seen in the Japanese drama Tokyo Tower, was fascinated that this luck here. View of Tokyo Tower Middle observation deck and upper deck, height is 150 m and 250 m, respectively, in the night, watching 360-degree night view of Tokyo, illuminated, and really has that romantic feeling in the Japanese TV drama series, it's no wonder there are many Japan young couples on a date here.

经常在日剧中看到东京塔,感觉很神往,这次有幸来到这里。东京塔有中层观景台和高层观景台,分别是150米和250米高度,在夜晚,观看360度的东京夜景,灯火辉煌,而且真的有日剧中那种浪漫的感觉,难怪有很多日本年轻情侣在这里约会。

Finally see my soul dreams of Tokyo Tower, really fun, classic romantic places in the Japanese TV drama series. I specifically chose to at night, boarded a special Observatory, is really as romantic as in Japanese drama, Tokyo was ablaze with light, countless bright neon signs, road to make the city's prosperity.

终于看到了我魂牵梦绕的东京塔,真的很开心,日剧里经典的浪漫场所啊。我特意选择在晚上来,登上特别展望台,真的是如日剧中那般浪漫,整个东京灯火辉煌,无数璀璨的霓虹灯,道尽了这座城市的繁华。
