#3 of 3,864 in Things to do in Tokyo
Symbolic of Japan’s economic rebirth after World War II, Tokyo Tower stands proudly at a height of 333 m (1,092.5 ft), defining the Tokyo skyline with its orange and white stripes. This lattice steel tower, modeled on the Eiffel Tower, holds a communications tower and two observation decks. Reach the decks by elevator or by climbing the 600 stairs to take in a view of the city below. Directly beneath the tower, visit the four-story building that houses restaurants, souvenir shops, and an indoor amusement park.

  • Great and fun place! Everything in Tokyo is a bit expensive but this is one of the places that you can’t miss!  more »
  • There is a garden in front of the tower which gives a nice view of the tower and great for photo purpose. There are a few groups of picnic with teachers leading around 10 kindergarten or grade 1 kids....  more »
  • That was less and less ready Skytree from visited daughter family after a long time. February I visited was still under construction, but to 3/3 to the top gained access. Looks close, Sanda is the view from the Tower once lived, felt nostalgic. Even the 4-year-old grandson was excited. Zojo-ji Temple, also nearby, on the way back, I stopped, but this is good. It was busy, so there were many foreign tourists.

  • Absolutely wonderful views at night time - I loved seeing all the city lights! There is a cafe on the main deck and it is very fun to eat and drink with a view out of the tower! We were going to go to the very top and pay extra, but the weather was bad and so the top deck was closed. However, the main deck was just as good. There is a nice souvenir shop with some lovely post cards of the tower; it is also family friendly. A good day out if you like landscapes and are not afraid of heights!
  • There was construction when we visited so we could not go up after the 3rd floor or so. It's away from other locations so getting there is a little harder. Either taxi or take the train and walk about 15min up hill to get there. Photos of the tower from afar is very nice. If you visit during the evening and see the tower at night, it is a great photo op.
  • Not much to see at the observation deck, I was expecting a lot of skyscrapers but actually there is not enough to define a unique Tokyo skyline. It was good though that we went up right before sunset so the changing view due to sunset made the experience worthwhile. They also have light and sounds inside when it gets dark, that also makes the trip a bit more interesting. You can also visit the Tokyo One Piece indoor adventure, it's more suitable for teens though, and for One Piece followers.
  • Loved Tokyo Tower! Especially since one of the floors had the One Piece themed attraction. Super enjoyed browsing all of the Mugiwara related stuff there. The view from the mid-viewing deck was also great despite the misty weather. Overall, a great place to visit when in Tokyo!
  • Not as tall as other places, but looks nice. There is a lot to do in the area. And you can still get a good view. Plus it's cheaper. There is a great beer garden during the summer.
