Nice view to the city, better at night

It is one of the Tokyo icons. It was good, especially special observatory in 250 m, would be better if the view wouldn't be through windows.

I really enjoyed the Tokyo Tower and loved the employees outfits. The view from the top was great and we enjoyed the little park with the waterfall to the left.

I like the Tokyo Tower but I think it is over rated especially if you try to compare it with the Eiffel Tower. But the nightlife in that area is good so not a total waste of time.

It was an old structure. Worthy to visit for being the former tallest structure in town. But lately had been over taken by the telecommunication tower. A good souvenir shop on the TOP level with food court at the basement. Don''t expect too much tough.

We visited Tokyo Tower on a weekday in April 2016. The line to get up to the tower wasn't too bad and once upstairs we are able to take our time on the first level. The day was a bit overcast so we couldn't see all the way to Mt Fuji. We also went up to the next level. Once... More

We visited in the evening to get the best night view. This is said to be even 13m taller than Effiel Tower which amazed me. Not suggested to pay extra for top Deck.

It was my first trip to Tokyo so I was open to seeing everything. The Tokyo Tower looks amazing from a distance but once you get up on it you don't get the same dramatic effect as the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

I was here in May, here are the positive and negative points Positive points: It is always nice to go up to a view point and see the city from above. The elevators are super fast, there is basically no queue and the view is nice. What is the most impressive is realizing that the city looks like never ending... More

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.
