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.

I've read many reviews saying that going up on Tokyo Tower isn't worth spending 1.600 Yen (900 Yen main observation deck + 700 Yen special observation deck). I doubt that. I went there in the evening hours and there was no waiting line in front of the ticket booth and the lower elevators. In deed there was a waiting line (about 20 minutes) for the elevators going up from the main observation deck to the special observation deck. But the view from the special observation deck is stunning and worth the additional waiting time and additional price. When you go there after sunset, make sure you have a good camera that is able to take good low light pictures.
Although there were many people I could still get around the deck to take good pictures of all directions.
Going down back to the main observation deck means another time waiting for about 5 to 10 Minutes. On the way down from the main observation deck you pass by a café and a stage (club 333). When I went down a popular J-Pop girl group was performing on the stage so it was really crowded but a funny experience.
There are several shops, attractions and restaurants on the lower levels of the tower mainly for kids and teenagers. I just bought Tokyo Bananas to eat on my way back to the hotel.

Great experience - not bad price to get to main deck at 900 yen pp and if you want can go to top deck for additional 700 yen pp.
View was about the same and suggest just using the 700 yen on something else.
If you do go up recommend going before sunset so you can catch the sunset over Tokyo.
It's a beautiful tower to look at especially when it lights up so if you get the views elsewhere just going to look at the tower and have dinner nearby also works!

Very cool place to visit. We went at night and had a great view of the city. We paid extra for the “top deck tour” and it was cool but I’m not sure if it’s worth it. The view is about the same from the normal deck and the top deck, although they have dimmer lights up top so it’s less reflective on the glass.

If you’re in Tokyo, you would definitely want to visit Tokyo Tower. It’s an amazing experience! The ticket isn’t expensive. You get to choose from two different levels. If you purchase the top level, you get a chance to stop at the first level. The view is worth it, we got to see it during the day and night. They have restaurants and souvenir shops as well.

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。
