An iconic landmark in the skyline of Tokyo, the Tokyo Tower (東京タワー) is a popular Japanese tourist attraction resembling another tower in Paris, France. The tallest self-supporting steel tower in the world, Tokyo Tower measures a whopping 333m, that’s 13m taller than the Eiffel Tower. Completed in 1958, the tower is both a major telecommunications hub and popular attraction which pays tribute to Japan’s success in rapid industrialisation and economic growth.

Day or night, Tokyo Tower offers unbelievable views of the city. By day, the seemingly endless city stretches out right before your eyes, all the way to the horizon, as far as the eye can see. By night, the brilliant neon lights of the city turn the outlook into a twinkling sea of lights. If you’re lucky, you might even catch the fireworks show from Tokyo Disney far below. From the soft white blanket of snow in winter to the spectacular cherry blossom season of spring, each of the four seasons offer a unique way to experience Japan’s Tokyo Tower.

The tower's main observatory at 150 meters is reached via elevator or a 600-step staircase (both paid). Thanks to the tower's central location, the observatory offers an interesting view of the city despite being only at a relatively moderate height. There are also some "lookdown windows" in the floor to stand on, a souvenir shop and a cafe where visitors can enjoy refreshments.

A second set of elevators connect the main observatory to the 250 meter high special observatory, from where you can get a bird's eye view of Tokyo from high above the surrounding buildings. The special observatory is the third highest observation deck in Tokyo. When visibility is good, visitors can see the Tokyo Skytree and Mount Fuji in the distance.

The four-story FootTown building directly under Tokyo Tower houses Tokyo Tower Aquarium, souvenir shops and Asia's biggest wax museum where visitors can meet world-famous people. Visitors should not miss the illumination of Tokyo Tower that begins at sunset. In addition to the conventional pattern of illumination, seven lighting colors illuminate the tower by means a mechanism called "Diamond veil" to match promotional and other events, spellbinding viewers.

Directly below the tower stands the "Foot Town" building, which houses a variety of souvenir shops, cafes, restaurants and the One Piece Tower, an indoor amusement park. Opened on the 15th anniversary of the popular manga in 2015, the park offers a variety of shows, games and other attractions that feature characters from the series.

Tokyo Tower Access

There are several way to access Tokyo Tower via public transport: 

  • Subway Akabanebashi Station on the Metropolitan Subway Oedo line then a 5 minute walk.
  • Onarimon Station on the Metropolitan Subway Mita line then a 6 minute walk.
  • Kamiyacho Station on the Tokyo Metro Hibiya line then a 7 minute walk.
  • JR Train Service: Hamamatsucho Station on the Yamanote line then a 15 minute walk.

Reviews by visitors

This was one of the first attractions I went to while in Tokyo. If I remember correctly, it was about 800 yen to go to the top and the view was breathtaking. They had some beautiful music playing and there was light show to enhance the experience. Definitely put this on your to-do list and you won't be disappointed.

~tom

I had a pleasant experience to this tower. I took the 250m height of observation deck and I think that it was an amazing journey. Firstly it is the meteor rain projected view on the wall. It was fascinating. Then, it was the music at the background to blend with the ambience. It is highly recommended for couples and those who wanted to go for proposal too.

~yoke

250meter above ground to experience the great view over Tokyo.

On first sight not busy but when going down have to wait longer than desired, up to 30minutes which sucks!

Nevertheless worth visiting

~nick

Very worthwhile doing - panoramic 360 views All the better for us, however, because a guide explained various aspects of the view and gave interesting snippets about local areas: their current and recent history - all of which gave a depth to the visual experience Souvenirs were outrageously priced, so avoid!

~lou

Tokyo Tower is one of the must-see things we wanted to go to. Though it's not as grand as the Eiffel Tower, it's still a pretty sight to see. It's worth the trek to this area to see this tower lit up.

~sunflower

Opened in 1958, the Tower looks and weighs much lighter than its French counterpart. Fast elevators take you to the Main Observatory platform at 150m high (access cost 900yen) where you get a great circular view of the City of Tokyo. The Tower has special arranged events on this Main Platform arranged on a weekly basis.

~michael

The Sky Tree Tower is the highest tower of Japan and the second highest in the world being 634 metres tall. The observatory deck is 350 metres above the ground level and gives a panoramic view of the city. The tower attracts large number of visitors every day.

~bpb

This is such an iconic location in Tokyo and at a whopping 9 meters tall than the Eiffel Tower why not go just to bite your thumb at the French? As you walk toward the location you should also enjoy the nearby temple with plenty of great picture locations and shade on a hot day.

Inside there is currently a One Piece themed area which is a MUST for fans of the show. 

I would recommend doing this tower before you go to the Sky Tree as it cannot complete with the sheer height but the views are still great!

~mike

A must go tourist attraction in Tokyo! My tip is to go to Tokyo Tower when the sun is about to set! This is the time when you get the most fantastic view of Tokyo! Don't forget to buy a ticket to go to the top point of the tower and stomp on the transparent glass on the floor! There are also some performances at the tower and also an aquarium (which I didn't visit) and when you are done, pop down to the small shopping mall below to buy some souvenirs or eat some desserts!

~janice

By all means, ascend this tower. Unlike its look alike in Paris, this one includes a shrine and deity to pray to, especially for an exam grade as high as the tower. You can even visit at an auspicious time with your sweetheart. After you have seen the heights and looked down the glass floor at the street way below, there is an amusement park and food court, as well as several photo opportunities. You may take more photos than the proverbial Japanese tourists do.

~shann

We went on a cloudy day, but still Great view a lot to see. The employees are very friendly and helpful. Don't forget to get a stamped key if the sky tree, very momento for only 700 yen.

~jenifer

We went up to 250m, but you can do as cheaper option up to 150m. The elevators with windows are terrifying, especially near the top. Great hazy views to help you appreciate the sheer size of Tokyo. Worth a visit. Be prepared for the poor dressed up and chained monkey doing tricks at the bottom. Animal welfare is clearly not a big issue here.

Very quick ride up to the top of Tokyo Tower. We went at night (around 10pm) based on the recommendations of others. Worth the trip and didn't have to wait at any point. Amazing views!

~tdot

We went on a weekday. No wait at all. There is an amazing view from the top platform. We bought the tourist photo just for fun. We are still trying to figure out the cone head looking guys. One has a bandaid????

~sharon

Experience :-

"A beacon of Light in the darkness that overlook Tokyo"

Having resided in Daiba on my previous trip, sights of the Tokyo Tower were frequent, especially in the evenings when it shore ever so brightly; although I did not have a chance to pay a visit then.

This time though, it was one of my designated locations - it does not disappoint. Fresh out from Hamamatsucho Station, I walked through the streets that led to a temple along the path to the Tower. It was plenty scenic with the Lights from the Tower shining through the Cherry Blossoms. For many like myself that may not yet have a chance to see the Eiffel Tower, this is probably the closest thing next to it. Apart from a glorious view from the observatory, the Tower also offers many eateries and gift shop; in particular the One Piece Tower which I did end up grabbing many souvenirs.

Tips/Advice:-

1) Preferred Time of Visiting? Strongly encourage to visit in the evenings.

2) Admission Fee? Vicinity is free to enter but heading to Observatory Decks cost between 900-1600 yen.

Wayne’s ratings (As ticked):-

i) Must-GO!
ii) Recommended ✔✔✔
iii) Nay.. or best go as a filler

It is short of Must-GO! from my experience due to the Observatory Decks and One Piece Tower costing quite a fair bit to enter. Definitely visit if you wish to get a good view of Tokyo's night and surroundings.

PS: Thank you for reading and hope my input and photos help.

~wayne

If you want a great view of the city, this is it! Similar experience up on top that you would have as the Eiffel Tower...the experience on the ground however is pretty plain...if you are going to go up it, don't bother going.

~craig

I don't normally do real touristy stuff, but we see this tower from our hotel and thought it deserved a look. 

We took the metro one stop and got off about 3 blocks from the tower. It's imposing as you get close and we were excited to go up.

You have two choices, one to go to the observation deck and an upgrade to go the top of the tower. We went to the top!!!

The elevator ride from the observation tower to the top was with the price. It's hit a bump almost at the top and you freak out. And then you arrive and take pictures and go back down. Touristy yes, but a must do. Filled with other folks doing the same.

The staff are so polite and nice. The four stars is just the very basic food and gift choices. Not much to do other than look at least for me. 

Epic views and pay for the upgrade. Eat somewhere else. 

~peter

We had the most amazing views of the Tokyo Tower from our hotel room and we decided to go and visit it after dark. The Tokyo Tower was open until 11pm the night we went so we spent a couple of hours there from 9pm taking photos and enjoying the views.

There was a second viewing floor just one level down from the one we started on. They had pretty blue lights switched on there.

We enjoyed it more than the newer and taller skytree primarily because Tokyo buildings seem so much closer and more impressive from the Tokyo Tower.

~wendy

This place is a great start to your Tokyo adventure as it allows you to see the whole sprawling urban jungle that is Tokyo from the all directions. On a good day (this was not one for my experience) one can see Mt. Fuji in the distance unless it's cloudy. The price is a little steep but it's Japan so probably not the most expensive cool thing you'll do here. I would suggest to do your souvenir shopping downstairs once you come down on the 3rd floor is some great and sometimes better less expensive options on Tokyo tower items. Try the the custard filled pastry down here too it's delicious. Try to avoid during cloudy days as you'll be getting mostly gray skies.

~matt

Tokyo Tower is half the size of Tokyo Skytree.
There are 2 observation decks, one at 150m & other at 250m. Tickets to these are available on the ground floor. Souvenir shop on 1st floor.
Offers awesome panaromic views of Tokyo. On a clear day one can see as far as Mt.Fuji.
There is a glass window to look through to the bottom.
Illuminated at night. 
Looks similar to Eiffel tower!

~ontil

This tower was modeled on the Eiffel Tower and stands at 333 metres tall, and still provides some great photo opportunities from the observation deck of the Tokyo skyline. At night it is lit up and even from a distance away looks pretty spectacular.

Various attractions at the bottom of the tower including The One Piece Cartoon Museum which if your a fan you must go and look round. Souvenir shops and places to grab a drink and some snacks are also available.

~paul

Took the first lift up 150m to observation deck number 1. 360 degree views . Day was fairly overcast but could still a lot . This city skyline never ends!. Then took the second lift after a couple of flights of stairs up to next deck which us 250m up. Felt like we were up in the clouds . Well worth the money. 3200 yen for 2 of us.

~loz

We took the Oedo line and exited Akabanebashi. Then, it's a 5 minute walk to Tokyo Tower. We went on a Saturday morning in June. It opens at 9am, and we got there around 9:30am and it wasn't crowded. We paid 16,000 yen each to go to the Main Observatory and Special Observatory. The Main Observatory is 150 meters high, and then, we took another elevator to go to the Special Observatory, which is 240 meters high. The views were beautiful and we're glad that we got to go up Tokyo Tower during our visit.

~jenn

Japans attempt at the Eiffel Tower! Just over half the size of the Sky Tower, the views from TT are not as spectacular but it is worth seeing at night as opposed to a day trip. 

Also, be sure to walk around the shopping floors as there are always cool gifts knocking about that you may not find elsewhere. Definitely worth a stroll past if you don’t decide to go up to the observation deck.

~sheen

We went during daytime when it just opened and it was not too busy. For the nightview gives a different perspective and would likely be worth it. See Tokyo from many floors and photo op time. Shops on lower levels for you to buy gifts. Overall a tourist spot to hit in Tokyo. Not quite the Eiffel Tower but nevertheless great panoramic views.

~haren

I really enjoyed this landmark. You get a 360 degree view of Tokyo. At night the interior observatory spaces are decorated with lights and soft music plays. It's a nice environment. The view is truly incredible. It can get crowded at times but not unreasonably so.

~bridget

Eiffel Tower in the middle of Tokyo! Visiting Tokyo Tower is kitschy, touristy - and fun! There's lots of little booths for great souvenirs in the building below the tower, and options for food (including the ever present crepes) and the ride up the tower is fun. The highlight of course is the view - which is stunning!!! Walk around the observation deck and you can see all over Tokyo. We went in the evening, when the lights were lovely. Take the extra ride to top observation deck - looking out the elevator at the girders on your way up. It's not for those afraid of heights! But at the top you are rewarded with even more spectacular views!

~loric

We got the 1600 yen ticket to climb the tower at the halfway point and at the top.

You get to see the whole city of tokyo and on a good day, you might even see mount fuji

just like the other towers ive been to theres a shop, a cafe, comfort rooms and elevators

take note there is a ONE PIECE tokyo tower section which requires a different payment.

~shey

Compared to the Sky Tree, this tower is significantly smaller, however it is the original tower in Tokyo. We got the ticket as a part of the One Piece attraction or I don't think we would have spent the money. From the outside, it is very beautiful at night and I would highly suggest timing it to be there after dark. Keep you mind, you can take plenty of pictures from the outside and not pay to ascend the tower itself.

~tim

Tokyo tower (made famous in the first Godzilla movie) is a worthwhile trip. From the observation floor on can see central Tokyo in all 360 degrees. We were impressed on how clean the city was, but from the tower one can see that even the roofs are maintained.

~air

It is not as high as Dubai, but due to it's construction it gives you a much better experience of height. The second deck is less spectacular even though is has a small piece of glass floor.

~rien

One more oportunity in Tokyo to admire sky line for an afordable price. ¥900 adults. If you want to go to the top (250m.) you have to pay extra ¥900. Well organised parking and queue, 5min.waiting to go up on a saturday afternoon, so good for us !!

~joan

Nice view. Enchanting building but slowly being surrounded by taller buildings. Historically the is Japan's Eiffel Tower and represented Japan's eagerness to be recognised as a European equal.

~david

We went as part of our tour through JTB Tours (Dynamic Tokyo). Great to visit with a guide and have the commentary which adds so much but for those able to navigate their own way, much more to see. You can pay extra to go to a higher vantage point. Tokyo Skytree is much higher I am told.

~la

Not much to say about this place. It speaks for itself. You MUST see this and travel up to the top if you visit Tokyo. Great pictures of the city. A must visit.

~mike

Came around 6pm on a weekday and waited maybe 2 mins for the next elevator. My friends and I really enjoyed the view, and it was fun taking photos and seeing Tokyo from different angles. It wasn't that crowded, and if I wanted to get close to the glass at a certain spot, I'd usually only have to wait a minute or two for that area to clear up.

My only two gripes were that a lot of the windows were pretty grimy and they used the top portion of some of the windows to project some images onto while they played kind of irritating loud music. 

The gift shop was kind of cute although nothing to get super excited about. They sold a lot of Tokyo tower themed merchandise, of course, like cookies, charms, postcards, etc.

Overall I enjoyed my time there and feel that the price was worth it. In my opinion it's the kind of place you only have to visit once to soak up the experience.

~reneos

I actually live in France under or around an hour from Eiffel Tower so you might think "oh wow, this guy might as well skip this place" but no. 

Sure, it's based off the Eiffel Tower but it's got so much more to do in my opinion. It has a lot of shops and restaurants actually under the tower, multiple floors of shopping, even an aquarium that I didn't go to though. 

If you're a fan of the manga/anime One Piece, you'll find that there's an entire section dedicated to One Piece. Set with a cafe, buffet, and boutique full of One Piece. 

Also at the time I went, they had a yearly Milky Way illumination going on, where they light up the stairpath and bottom observatory with blue lights and it's just real beautiful. I'd say this is definitely a not-to-miss place to visit while in Tokyo.

~victor

We visited during the day, and there were no crowds, so went straight up in the lift. The views from the top are great, but I think I'd rather see them at night with all the lights. The perspex section on the walkway gives a good idea of the height you have climbed (if you're brave enough to stand on it!).

You have no alternative but to exit via the huge merchandise/souvenir section. Beware of the sliding doors - one of our group had her hand shut in it.

Another tourist attraction ticked off the list...

~kid

Pretty easy to get tickets on the spot and no hassle of getting in. Lifts are to the top and not to the bottom (lucky we had strollers and they had to take us- otherwise stairs ). From mid point only 1 lift up and there is a bit of a queue there and back. Didn't spend much time up the top as it's pretty small space so mostly just waiting in line to go back down. Very similar to Eiffel tower (I think that's what they going for anyways). Plenty if souvenirs, which we thought were reasonably priced.

~luda

I haven't been to Tokyo tower for almost 9 years. 

The admission is 900yen now. Went to the main observatory, nothing much has changed.

Still has the lookdown windows and the 360 degrees view of Tokyo.

I was there at 4pm on a Wednesday. Very quiet, not many people.

Tokyo Tower is one of the major tourist attractions in Japan but somehow it loses its charm along the years.

~sing

After dining at Gonpachi in Roppongi, we opted to walk to this landmark to let the sake wear off. The tower really looks better at night. There is also this covered walk which is hung with thousands of white and candle-hued LED light strings.

~ajib

Beautiful, especially at night. Reminded me of an Eiffel Tower, just a bit smaller. A great sight to see in Tokyo. There are two levels. If you want you can go all the way up, or stop half way through. Either way you can catch some breathtaking views of the city.

~tuns

It's a bit of a walk to the tower from the nearest stations (I'd recommend a taxi especially if you have little ones with you). Presented some nice photo ops from the outside. We visited mid-day and didn't go up being that we had already visited the Govt Bldg and Skytree.

~tisk

Decided to visit Tokyo Tower partially for nostalgia and for the views. Nostalgia in that my family and I visited the Tower back when I was seven years old, and for the views of Tokyo. Prior to the Tokyo Tower, I went to the Tokyo Skytree, which is taller and newer. But the lines were longer and the cost was more ¥2,060 versus ¥900 to go to the observation deck. Well, the views from Tokyo Tower didn't disappoint and the smaller crowds make it more memorable. To get there, I used the Toei-Asakusa line to the Daimon station, and then it's a 10-15 minutes walk to the Zōjō-ji Temple first. From there, it's another 10 minutes or so. It's not as glitzy as Skytree with its many restaurants and huge shopping mall. But It does have more character, I thought. It was a nice visit.

~frank

It's a great experience for someone who doesn't suffer from acrophobia. The tower is a replica of the Eiffel Tower and gives breathtaking views of Tokyo.

~izbela

Even though this day was a bit rainy and overcast you could see the city pretty well
They say on a clear day you can see Fuji-san.

Go to the special observatory at the top for an even better view.

For the anime / manga fans there is a "One Piece" extravaganza and shop there too.

Food and shopping on the ground level.

~hanzel

You don't need to pay to get great shots of it, even being beneath it will make some great pictures.

I really recommand seeing it when the sunset begins, it lights up with the sky and will make some great shots !

~azu

Nice place to get a great view of the city at night. The wait in line both up and down can be a bit long and the A/C did not work very well in the area you wait to go up but once you get to the top, it is worth it. Till you have to wait to go down which took longer than going up!

~john

Located in Minato, at a walking distance from the Hamamatsucho station (JR Line), Daimon Station (Metro- line).

It is the second tallest structure in Japan at around 334 meters height.There is an entry fee. Ideally, its best to visit during the late hours in the night at around 9.00 P.M to avoid rush, catch a glimpse of the magnificently lit Tokyo city in the night time.

~joy

As other reviewers stated, it gives you a birds eye view of Tokyo however this is all weather permitting. The day we visited clouds were low so we stayed on the lower deck to be able to see.

~fate

Definite worth it! Especially on a sunny day - apparently you can see Mt Fuji if it is really clear. We paid an extra Y700 (adults) to access the special observatory deck. It was worth it and gives you a lot better views

~jeeve

Lots of people (tourists mostly) in wait for entering. Pricy visit, but if you wish to have a view of Tokyo then do it.

We did not go there this time - I have been there before, and my companion was not happy to go high up! So we saw it from several places in Tokyo since it dominates the view if you are in the area close to the tower.

Looks from the distance as a copy of the Eiffel Tower - it is nicely illuminated at night time.

~lynge

We visited Tokyo Tower in the middle of the week in late May, and there were hardly any queues, and plenty of time to observe the view on both observation levels. The staff were welcoming and kind, and the views phenomenal! You really get a sense of how great Tokyo is - from East to West, North to South, the city doesn't seem to have an end. 

Tokyo Tower also have a large souvenir section with all sorts of exciting goods, as well as some of the finest looking lavatories I've seen in all of Tokyo.

It really felt like an exclusive experience, and well worth the ticket price.

~may

We went there around 4pm, just in time to see the city before dark and before the city lights and the tower itself was lit. While walking to the tower, I can’t help but take a lot of photos just to get the perfect angle of the picturesque tower in front of me. Since we were there late afternoon, the lines to the ticketing counter were manageable already with just a little less than 15min. Of course, it's not just the city that has magnificent light. Even the tower itself is very gorgeous at night. The observation area has tall glass windows offering a 360-degree panoramic view of the Tokyo skyline. This breathtaking views made me speechless! This is indeed a worthwhile activity when you're in Japan.

~veena

Always wanted to go to Japan , but over £3000 for ten days ,not cheap , saw an advert in the paper for travelbag ,you fly to Hong Kong , pick up the ship then cruise Japan ending in Tokyo , £1400. So at that price I took my son with me and stayed four days in Tokyo total 14 days it came out , just under £3000 , so landed in Hong Kong had two days one night there , then picked up the princess cruise ship , 14 decks ,wow , sailed down to Taiwan , then over to Japan , went to four ports , then ended up in Tokyo I paid for extra two days in the capital , what an amazing city I loved Tokyo tower great view over the capital and you can see Mount Fuji , went in spring too so snow on Fuji and cherry blossom , food great people fantastic , I will go back ,

~chris

This is a great place to visit to take a look at the city view. The night and day scenes are different and are both worth a visit. There are 2 ticket options depending on the final level which you are entitled to stop. There is a photobooth which is worth a short visit for a great souvenir snapshot. This majestic tower is an awesome view itself even before i stepped into the tower.

~sooi

This is one of the mail attractions in Tokyo. Looks great after the sunset and can be seen from miles away.. One can see this from any of the multistorey building. Lot of bars and retaurant around the area

~kay

What a way to see Tokyo at night...great views of the city...not great if you dont like heights of course...but if you are brave or dont mind being so high then..go and enjoy it..really is amazing.

~mancat

We went on a day that it rained ALL day. Therefore the tower was pretty quiet. It was however still a great view of Tokyo. The process of getting up there was very simple and the place was very clean. There were little tourist shops both at the observation deck and at the bottom. A must do when you come to Tokyo!

~melissa

loved Tokyo tower, it was a lovely clear day when we visited so got great views all round. and luckily it wasn't too busy to move around inside. we had a snack lunch at the café, average prices for food, quick service. shops if you wanted to buy thing's to remember your visit.

~celia

There's two observation decks at Tokyo Tower. The view from the top observatory gives you an awesome view of Tokyo. On a clear day, you can see Mt. Fuji. Make sure you stop by the gift shop to get your souvenir stamp of Tokyo Tower. I also like the outfit the staff are wearing. It really makes me think of the storybook "Madeline in Paris".
