I really loved visiting Tokyo Tower. It was just down the street from my hotel, which made it even better. It's not as tall as the Tokyo Skytree, but you can still get a nice view of the city. At the base there is a crepe shop, which is super yummy. There are also shops you can find various knick... More

We walked there but so many people so we just people watched & decided to wait for a sunny day & go to the taller Skytree later. Did sedan interesting Monkey show at the base. We walked around the park nearby watching the locals celebrating Sakura. They do like their drink!

Maybe in terms of structure, Tokyo Skytree is better, but a visit to Tokyo won't feel right if you don't visit Tokyo Tower, I've seen it in movies or anime many times and glad I finally able to see it in person. Try to visit at night, the lights definitely add more elegance to the tower. We didn't actually went... More

Our hotel was located near the Tokyo Tower, so we walked over one afternoon. We paid to go up to the first deck "Main Observatory" and then paid extra to go to the upper deck "Special Observatory". It was a sunny day (although a little hazy). We could not see Mt. Fuji, but we could see Tokyo stretched out 360°.... More

Inspired by the Eifel tower, this tower still offers great views of the city (especially on a clear night). It isn't as tall as the new Tokyo Skytree but it is also far cheaper. There is an extra surcharge to go up to the upper deck but the view from the observation deck was already very good. There are free... More

Tokyo Tower is the kind of a must see tourist atraction. We have the Eiffel in Paris, Petronas in KL and in Tokyo, the Tokyo Tower. Staff is polite and crowds go up and down lifts in a orderly fashion. The tower's red metal construction is impressive. They have various levels for viewing the city, choose yours wisely and you...

Easy access, efficient ticket office and friendly staff made this a very accessible place to visit. We only went to the 150 metre mark, as there are stairs to the next lift to 250 metres, and my mother couldn't make it. However views were fine, as we were lucky to get a sunny, clear morning.

Day or night is a great time to visit this as you have a different sensation to see the whole Tokyo. Come up to the highest floor. On the way down, stop by to watch for performance. Love it

The Tokyo Tower has an amazing view of downtown. The day we went it was very hazy and the view was limited. I am sure it is wonderful on a clear, sunny day. The tower has multiple observations decks for views along with restaurants, vending machines, and stores.

The view from the observatory was awesome! Be sure to take pictures. Also, there were lots of shops inside the tower to buy souvineers. The Tokyo Tower is a must-see.

Staying in Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi

Neighborhood Profile
Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi
Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The neighboring area of Shinbashi is a district of much older commercial buildings and it's a great place to join 'salary men' enjoying a drink and snacks at street stalls under the railway bridges after work.
