Aside from the scenery, lots of local shopping that can be done here. Lots of restaurants and bakeries on the premises. Easy access from the metro and close to Asakusa street markets. We spent almost a day here.

This tower is a fantastic icon, I've seen it from many locations in Tokyo and finally went up to see the views which were absolutely stunning, my god I knew Tokyo was big but these views puts everything into perspective, when in Tokyo you must see this and the breathtaking views of one of the biggest cities in the world.

I wanted a sky view of Tokyo so we visited Tokyo Tower. A bit of a walk, but incredible to see how expansive the city is. More reasonable than Sky Tower.

During the day the tower looks like a TV mast but in the evening the tower looks amazing! Also the view is great and this combined with night view is something worth seeing.
