Visiting on a clear day is worth both the time and the money. The entrance is a tad amusing being a floor below the entrance from the street and the information girl was NOT helpful in obtaining access info or anything else...could NOT speak nor understand English! This is the INFORMATION DESK. That being aside, the view from the observation desk worthwhile, even though the workmen had the nets up, covering the view on a couple sides ... access to higher platform also closed at this time.
Much cleaner than Empire State Building or the EIFFEL Tower by comparison.
Be sure to stop in at Baskins and Robbins on the main floor for refreshments and a scoop or two.

Modeled after the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Tokyo Tower no longer draws the crowds it once did because of the newly built Sky Tree. We showed up on a Saturday morning, paid for our ticket and climbed on the elevator. The tower has two observation decks...one at 489 ft. and one at 814 ft. We paid for the lower one and it was more than adequate. Unfortunately, the place is loaded with tacky souvenir shops and lots of small-time attractions that appeal mainly to children.

Great views of Tokyo, and short wait to get to top. Well worth a visit, and a good price for the ticket

Tokyo Tower is a prominent landmark. When we got there, we were greeted by thousands of faces lined up. After one member of our group went to investigate, we found that they were lining up for a festival at the base of the tower, but there was no signage advising of this. Fortunately we were able to scoot past them and up into the Tokyo sky. Unfortunately it was a cloudy day and we couldn’t see Mt Fuji, but we saw many other landmarks on the skyline. Seeing as Tokyo Tower only functions as a landmark now that the Tokyo Skytree has come online, it will need to add some extras to keep people coming here.
