Tokyo Tower

Tokyo Tower is one of the most famous landmarks in Tokyo. It’s no longer the tallest tower in Japan, as Tokyo Sky Tree Tower has taken its place.

Nonetheless, due to its wonderful views of Tokyo, this sightseeing spot is still popular. Also, it’s very close to Zojoji temple, a temple housing some shoguns and their wives’ graves; you easily can visit both Tokyo Tower and that temple on the same day.

This tower has 2 observatories, the main observatory on 2F and the special observatory that is 250 meters high. There is “Look Down Window” , a floor made by a 160 cm × 160 cm reinforced glass at the main observatory on 1F. You can see a view under the tower and walk there. I bet you’ll enjoy the thrill ! In addition, you can try to climb up and down between “foot town”, a shopping building under the tower, and the main observation by the stairs that has 590 steps ! The steps are allowed visitors to use on Saturday and holiday.

    I visited there really sunny day, so I got to see the Mount Fuji from the observation deck and it was beautiful! The gift shops in the tower is also fun to explore.
