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.

Tokyo Tower was amazing!! Easy access to local transport (subway and bus), and the ticket price was not expensive to go to the Main Deck (about halfway up)! I decided to walk up the steps (600!) to get to the viewing area rather than take the elevator and while being very hot and sweaty by the end, it was a lot of fun! They give you a little certificate to congratulate you and the progression of the view makes it a big recommendation from me! Overall, brilliant experience, incredible views and lovely staff!

This place is great. Definitely do it once if you haven't done it before. It's clean, modern, beautifully renovated. Unlike other modern wonders around the world which lack all of this. You have an amazing view of Tokyo with multi language commentary.

But the flip side is that if you've gone once you probably won't want to go again. Possibly worth going at night if you've only been during the day.

A good tourist attraction. There are two levels to go to, one at 150m and the top one of 250m. You can get to level one any time, but to go to the top level you have to book a time. We opted for just the first level. The cost is very reasonable at 900 yen to go to level 1. The views are great , although we had wet misty weather which killed the long distance view a bit. On the way out there are always plenty of souvenir shops to walk through. All in all a worthwhile attraction.

Amazing piece of architecture, providing an excellent view of Tokyo city and its surrounding area. Best views in the evening when the city is all lit up. Could be a bit chilly at the top. The sky walk is a definite must for the strong-hearted. Like the great scene appearing in a movie, it gives such a stunning view here to the city. Within tower, everything is well organized. It is crowd but never feel bad. It is clean, vivid, and all in all, beautiful!

See unmatched 360-degree panoramic views of the bustling, colorful city of Tokyo through the Tokyo Tower Main Observatory. From this height, you'll see the sprawling urban landscape below, from famous buildings to its well-known shopping streets and stops. Parks and monasteries as well as shrines dot this beautiful cityscape, and you will be able to see as far as the Gulf of Tokyo, and even up to Mt. Fuji in the distance. You can enjoy the view as you shop among the many stores on this deck, and even catch a bite at one of the restaurants. You'll capture beautiful photographs of the city of Tokyo to bring home for your memories.

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。
