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.

This was a fantastic place to visit. The staff is welcoming and helpful. Prices are surprisingly reasonable for both the tour and the restaurants. Great variety of options in the gift shops. Guides spoke enough English that we could manage fine without knowing Japanese. Great history lesson on the audio tour.

Staff speaks English. Amazing views! Make sure to get the like VIP top deck tour. The extra bit of money is definitely worth it, the views are spectacular. Go at night, it is easier to see the city with the neon lights on. It also makes it better for photos, just make sure you have your night setting on and a good camera.

A must visit place in Tokyo. This tower is one of the identity of Tokyo. It has two decks, upper and lower. We went all the way to the top deck. The views from the top was just amazing and we literary felt on the top of the world. First deck also gives great views but the top is the best. The staff were very helpful and facilities are great. The restaurant on the first deck is a great place to have some memorable time at this iconic place. The souvenir shop is also very good. Overall a must visit place in Tokyo.

Did the top deck tour and while the tour was nice and informative the line and overall experience just wasn't very great. The tower is not served by enough elevators, especially to the top deck, so you end up waiting in line for so long just to go up the tower and there isn't a ton of space to wait in so it's just an long uncomfortable line. When you finally make it up you are greeted by the awesome expansive views of Tokyo, but I honestly don't think all the waiting is worthwhile, more so if you consider how much the whole 'experience' cost.

The iconic place for Tokyo and if you have the chance this would be go to place for how popular it is as a landmark for Japan. It has two decks to tour which is the lower and higher deck. I went up to the lower deck twice and it is already high enough to get a 360 degrees view of the entire Tokyo. If you are lucky you might see mount Fuji on a clear day but unfortunately for me it has always been cloudy and misty for both of my visits. The tickets are not too expensive with 900 yen for the lower observation deck entrance and you could purchase a package price to visit both decks. There is a nice cafe up on the observation deck so it is a nice romantic spot to sip coffee while watching the sun set. Also on the lower observation deck is a souvenir shop to purchase all Tokyo tower merchandise. All the way down at the base of the tower are also a few more souvenir shops to purchase food souvenirs and more little Tokyo tower souvenirs. Tokyo banana is also sold here. It would be nice to enter the tower deck around late noon and linger around until sunset and night time as the experience is different during the day and night.

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?

When sunny, on the tower is expected to Mount Fuji, Yokohama area, Miura peninsula, and Boso-hanto views.

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.

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.
