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 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 with 150-meters height and the special observatory with 250-meters height 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.

Access : a few-min walk from Akabanebashi Sta., Kamiyacho Sta., and Onarimon Sta.

If there is only one tower to visit in Japan it’s definitely this one.
The Tokyo Tower have always great events and expositions.
If you like One Piece, then your should visit it.
The view is also very impressive, maybe not as good as the Skytree but still worth it.

I really enjoyed visiting Tokyo Tower. Even though Tower itself visible from different parts of Tokyo, going all the way to the top gives a different perspective. I visited during sunset, view from the top was even more dramatic. Even though there is a fee to go to the top of the tower, it is definitely well worth it.

I don't normally enjoy touristy places, but the Tokyo tower is worth a visit. See Fuji on a good day. You can see the multiple micro climates of Tokyo from here. We spent almost 2 hours looking at the views, watching the very well produced video on the tower, and finally walking down the open air steps to the bottom (protected by fencing). At 1200¥, I would highly recommend it!

Finally, after few JR train transit, and long walk, crossing all temples and allies, we reach Tokyo Japan Tower!. In fact we could see the tower from far along the walk.
It is a must to visit, similar to all other countries local landmark towers buildings.
Took too much photos and we did spent some time inside the tower.
However, seems the mall in the tower not that much variety of foods, neither shops.
Due to time limitation, we didn't have chance to go up the tower, need to pay the entrance fee too.
Perhaps more nicer view to enter up the tower at evening.

Like in Paris, Tokyo Tower is illuminated in different colours at night. We could see it every night from our hotel room at the Grand Hyatt Roppongi. Worth staying there.

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。
