Tokyo Tower has been a symbol of Tokyo for decades. It is great to look at from a distance, but as an observatory, it is not up to par with newer observatories such as the Tokyo City View and Sky Tree.

Clearly inspired by the eiffel tower, yet the Tokyo Tower has a distinctly Japanese feel to it. Located pretty central in the city near roppongi, the tower has an imposing presence over the city. The trip to the viewing deck costs 900 yen but there is always a long queue, so go there with plenty of time to enjoy the... More

Having landed early in the AM and checking in we decided we would use the afternoon to head to Tokyo Tower as it was on the list of things to see and do of my youngest son. The weather was pretty much overcast but the city was still visible. We only went to the 1st viewing deck as we planned... More

I am in Japan for official purpose. I had the opportunity to vist Tokyo tower, which was 15 minutes walking distance from my office(Shika-koen). Upon reaching tokyo tower, i purchased ticket(900 yen) for main observatory (150m). Upon reaching the main observatory, you can purchase ticket for special observatory(250m)

Just like any other observation deck. Views are good but nothing spectacular. Spend your time and money some place else.

Nice views and well signposted. A good opportunity to get a good view from not too high - you can still see the life. The 2nd floor down from the lift is another floor that often has live music - the night we went it had a great atmosphere. On the road from the subway, before turning left up to... More

Great view of Tokyo, tall enough to see every part of Tokyo, and not be too bothered by the fog that you would get if it is too high. A little underwhelming though. If you've been to the Eiffel Tower and Taipei 101, combine the two experience together and you get this. Sort of.

See the best of Tokyo on top of Tokyo Tower. Visit the tower during the day and see the spread of city to the farthest. It has a viewing dock which shows the whole of Tokyo in an amazing 360 degree view. A must visit during your stay at Tokyo. You can eat, spend time with family and friends on... More

Tokyo tower is less crowded then Skytree. The view may not be as impressive as Skytree but worth the visit night or day.

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.
