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.

I went to Tokyo Tower originally to only see the One Piece attraction. However, when I arrived I thought I would enjoy all the tower has to offer. I was not disappointed.

The One Piece museum is any fan's dream. It has fun attractions to keep you entertained, a live show and a themed restaurant, if you're hungry. I causally made my way through the exhibitions and games with a huge smile etched on my face as I recalled all of the moments that our favourite pirate crew have been through. It's a must-see for anyone who loves One Piece. I don't understand Japanese but it didn't stop me from having such a great time.

The Tokyo Tower was next on my list. I purchased the full experience, which allowed me to head to the highest viewing platform. I went on an extremely clear day and I was able to see all the way to Mt. Fuji. If it was any clearer I may have been able to see mainland China. It was a little over priced for what you get but it's my first time on Japan and I thought it was a great experience.

Tokyo Tower is a major historic landmark in Japan. While vacationing in Tokyo, we decided that this was in important destination to include on our itinerary. Skytree is newer and taller, but the tower was part of Japan's reconstruction, with lots of history and a beautiful Eiffel Tower type of architecture.

Walking to Tokyo tower was easy even with large crowds everywhere watching the outside show and waiting to take the elevator up. We stood in a long line that moved pretty fast. We had tickets in little time and before we knew it, we were heading up the elevator to the main platform. There is a higher platform which cost a bit more money, but our group was more than satisfied to look out from the larger main platform, which is still pretty high up and provides a great 360 degree view of the city.

The main platform has lots of space for walking around all of the windows to get some awesome views of the surrounding city. You are pretty much free to shop in the gift shop and leisurely enjoy the view. If you get there in the evening, you can capture some beautiful sunset pictures. A glass panel in the floor provides a window to see all the way to the ground below.

Tokyo Tower is a wonderful way to take in the beauty of the city and create some great memories to share over and over. It's well worth the visit.

Awesome views of Tokyo from the top of this historic landmark. Plan on ~40 minutes if you are going all the way to the top. The cost was about 2900 yen. There are two level options - if you are there you may as well just go all the way to the top - so worth it. The elevator itself is an entertaining ride as you get to make your way up through the visible frame work and beams – an interesting site for sure. When you get up to the top they make sure you are well accommodated for and there is even a robot to talk to – kind of a gimmick, I suppose. The entrance fee includes an audio device set to your native language. With the audio device you are set for a self-guided tour that goes over the history of the Tokyo Tower and its designer, all of which is really quite interesting to listen to and see (the visible displays along the way). The top of the tower provides really great views of Tokyo and a glimpse of how vast Tokyo really is. Be sure to snap some photos while you are up there – all behind the glass of course as they do not allow access to the outside from there. The end of the tour lands you in the gift shop, of course.

Definitely a tourist trip, but almost a must for first timers to Tokyo. Plenty of replicas and souvenirs of the tower along with exhibits about it's history. There's a large One Piece theme park occupying a couple stores. If you're feeling adventurous you can even take the stairs to the main deck, weather permitting. Plus they offer some freebies on your birthday most notably a choice of ice cream, crepe or waffle

This was on my bucket list before I went to Tokyo, and I was not disappointed. There’s a bit of a wait and it costs more to go to the top deck, but the city views were outstanding. Don’t freak out on the elevator going to the top like I did, it’s definitely safe.

The main deck is about halfway up the tower and there are windows in the floor! The kids were scared of them, so I showed them that they were safe.

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。
