Amazing lights and amazing scenery

Great to be visited by couples at night.It can be very romantic in the dark with pretty lights but day tour is advisable if you are traveling as a family.

The Tokyo Tower is like the Eiffel Tower in Tokyo. It has fantastic views, and lots of shopping down below on the ground. We found souvenirs to be a little hard to find in Tokyo, so take the opportunity while you are here. We went at night, and both the tower and the views were spectacular! Unfortunately the upper level... More

no more words to say. this site is amazing! stayed at tokyo prince hotel. only 10min walk. a lot of food restaurants in the basement. full of tourists lining up for the ride to the top. a bit pricey but worth it.

We were going to visit Skytree until we saw this beauty up close. Once we saw it, we knew we had to go. Went at night to see it all lit up and then again the next day to take pictures in the daylight and to go up to the observatory. I highly reccomend going towards the end of the... More

I went here at night, on my last night in Tokyo. Its entrance was closed, but I could still walk the perimeter. of it. As someone who has visited the Eiffel Tower in Paris, I couldn't help but compare the two. If it's your first time in Tokyo, I do recommend going for the cool experience, but I would probably...

Its ok somewhat crowed and they need to clean the windows.. ?They need to work on crowd control and having a good place to take pics of Mt. Fuji. On a clear day you can see the mountains but the windows need cleaning.

Ever since I saw Mothra break this Japanese symbol of post WWII recovery on film, I have wanted to see it :). There is an elevator ride up to the observation decks (the elevator has a neat little light show as you climb). The views are great (I was there in the daytime). One drawback is at one of the...

Great spot to visit. Can stay as long or as briefly as you like. The views of the tower from the ground as you approach as just as good as those from the observation deck.

Yes, that's very old school I can understand but Tokyo Tower is one of the landmarks you would not want to miss when you are in Tokyo.

Worth the visit if only for the view from the observation platform, several years since I visited but was a must do.

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.
