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’m finally here and at the right time because it’s evening and the city looks amazing!

I purchased a ¥1200 ticket to the main deck to view the surroundings from above.

There is Cafe plus a souvenir shop if you want to purchase a memory for yourself or someone else.

Also take some time to view a video history Tokyo and the Tower. It’s well worth it.

The lavatories are extremely clean!

Now, walk about and take in the beautiful views of the land of the rising Sun.

Finally, do you have 8 minutes to spare? Then walk down 600 steps to the foot of Tokyo Tower like I did.

Wow It's now a long way from being the tallest structure in Japan, but Tokyo Tower still makes the 'must see' list for Tokyo. It remains pretty impressive and the tour up is well. We went up to the main observation deck at night and had beautiful views of the city. Definitely worth a visit. We did this on our last night in Tokyo and it was a nice way to..

I went to visit the Tokyo Tower at night with my boyfriend, but while I was expecting a gorgeous night view, I was left pretty disappointed. The tower actually projects many holographic animations on the glass windows so there’s an entire section that essentially can’t be viewed and acts more as a projector screen. If that’s your cup of tea, you may enjoy it - and many people did given the crowd of people videotaping the show - but I was really looking forward to seeing the city from an aerial view and was disappointed by the holographic images and loud music. Also, because the top floor is still well lit, the lights are reflected against the windows so you can’t really take great pictures without seeing your reflection or the wall behind you.

Perhaps it’s better during the daytime, and I’ll definitely try that next time, but I would advise against visiting at night if you’re looking forward to seeing the city at night.

Tokyo Tower has been the symbol of Tokyo for a long time. You have the option to go to the main observatory or go to the top for a bit more. Going to the top, there will be a guided tour about the history of the tower, available in multiple languages. The top observatory is a bit narrow, but the view is very nice. After the tour on the top, you descend down to the main observatory. I went during winter and there was a mini Tokyo Tower light display at the base of the tower, which was very cute.

It's now a long way from being the tallest structure in Japan, but Tokyo Tower still makes the 'must see' list for Tokyo. It remains pretty impressive and the tour up is well worth it.

We went with young children and found there were plenty of facilities and things to keep them entertained. There's a fair number of shops and restaurants in the lower levels which if you're interested in I would allocate half a day to explore. Otherwise, it's a couple of hours well spent.

The service is quick and buying tickets was a breeze. It's pretty reasonably priced and the time slots mean there isn't much waiting in line. There's an audio guide and additional exhibits in the upper levels.

Definitely recommend!

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。
