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.

From check-n to check out, it was clear the staff was dedicated to being as accommodating as possible. The hotel was perfectly clean, and the cleaning staff for our room was great. The concierge was very helpful, and we could exchange our dollars for yen in the lobby. On American standards, I would not call it spacious, but we had an adequate amount of room. If spacious on an American standard is important, I would recommend the premium room with 33% more space. If I ever need a room in downtown Tokyo again, I would stay at the Park again, with the premium upgrade. It was an excellent hotel experience.

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.

😲 Amazing views, and we only went up halfway. The shops were a lot of fun and I found some great souvenirs for my family here. When my fiance and I went up halfway, we spent a lot of time enjoying the view over Tokyo. But then we went to the cafe one floor down and had the best sundae either of us have ever had 🍧💖. Overall a wonderful experience, can't wait to come back and go to the top!

I went to the top of this tower for around 3000 yen on a clear day. The tour of the tower is very enjoyable, with an audio guide available in basically any language. The guide is informative and interesting, telling the story of how Tokyo tower was built to become the symbol of Tokyo.

Also part of the tour is a photo taken by a professional. You are given a tiny copy of this for free, but you need to pay extra for the larger version.

You can spend as long as you want at the top of the tower. I arrived at 5:30pm and stayed until 8, to watch the sun go down, and mount Fuji turn red. There is no place to sit at the top of the tower, but if you can stand to stand up, it's possible.

In other reviews people complain that nearby skyscrapers block the view, but that is only the case on the middle deck. The view from the top is wide and uninterrupted.

Is it worth the money? Yes! But if it's too painful to pull that cash out of your wallet, be aware that there are some buildings that give you access to a beautiful view like this one for free. Minus the tour, though.

This place is one of the icon of Tokyo as well as a must-visit site! If you are in town, it is recommended for you to visit Tokyo tower not on the weekend. It will be lots of visitors in the weekend. You better visit on the weekdays. Go up with a 900 Yen ticket and you see almost the whole wonder of the city. In addition, you can enjoy the One Piece store, it is no fantastic!

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。
