Been there many times. Always fun! Lots of people, tourists and locals. Take your time while your there. Shoot some pics. And just take in the view.

Tokyo Tower is well worth the visit - easily reached on foot from central Tokyo. Great views all around - make sure you go to the top level - this is an additional cost but you won't regret it. Souvenir shops have plenty on offer as gifts for those at home.

The Tokyo tower was built in 1950's. The target opening day was 3rd of March 1958. The Japanese calendar said that day was 3 3 33. The height of tower is 333 m. The tower is made of steel plates, and the connection method is either bolting nor welding. The tower was made by rebutting method. It has been repainted... More

It has been a few years since I visited Tokyo Tower and it has been largely superseded by the new Sky-Tree across the Sumida River from Asakusa, Mt. Fuji etc. but it is much less crowded, and no reservations are required, on a clear view has a great view of Tokyo, Haneda Airport, and down to Yokohama. You can walk... More

Of course it's tacky, but what's not to love about a red and white Eiffel Tower? We only went to the main observation deck as the wait and queue for the very top deck was massive. Great views of Tokyo on a clear day, which we were blessed with. Don't get your souvenirs in the crowded shop up there, you... More

Bit of a tourist trap but still worth a visit. Watch out for reflections in the windows when you're taking pictures. There are a few spots where you can look down through clear Perspex to the ground below.

We arrived at the Tower before the rush, on a beautiful, clear day and were rewarded by great views of the city. Fun to see the Mori Tower, from where I had espied the Tokyo tower a few days previously. Clean loos at the top too!

To dear all of TripAdvisor, this is my best adventure in the world. The tower tall as 1/4 of Bitexco tower at Vietnam. With more that 120 engine to help it stand still, this thing is unbreakable. With a view of all of Tokyo, this thing is taller that Rainbow bridge at Tokyo a thousand times. This is certainly is... More

It doesn't get the highest view as the Skytree but it much less crowding than Skytree. You can see Mt. Fuji from the tower if the weather is clear. My only complaint about this tower is that they use the shade cover on window that make it difficult to take pictures with DSLR because it will make the sky color... More
