The History of Tokyo Tower

Tokyo Tower was built as a radio broadcast tower in 1958, during a point in time when television began to spread throughout Japan. The construction costs of the tower were immense at over 3 billion yen. The tower was built during a time when Tokyo started flourishing economically, and since then, it has become a symbol and landmark for the rapid industrial growth of the city. Although the newly established Tokyo Skytree has garnered much praise and attained popularity due to its futuristic design, Tokyo Tower attracts visitors for its spectacular views. In one section of Tokyo Tower’s main observatory deck, the floor is constructed entirely from glass so visitors can gaze almost 120 meters down below at the ground. Furthermore, there is a special observatory located at 223 meters above ground level.

Tokyo Tower at Night

Tokyo Tower during the night is lit up to match the season or special occasions. During Valentine’s Day the tower is illuminated with holograms pertaining to valentines, and throngs of couples and families visit the tower during this time. Furthermore, there are often some special events occurring at Tokyo Tower, such as yoga courses or music appreciation events. As there is probably not enough to see or do at the tower to justify a full day there, the best option is to spend the day sightseeing and head to the tower at night to catch the impressive views of the city. Tokyo Tower, which is located in Minato-ku, is accessible from Asakusa, Tokyo Station, Ueno, Akihabara, and Roppongi. It is also highly recommended to book a hotel near Tokyo Tower; gazing at the tower from your room after a long day of sightseeing could easily be one of the highlights of your vacation. There are many overseas tourists at Tokyo Tower, and staff at the tower and the surrounding hotels can provide assistance in English.

Landmark of Tokyo
Tokyo tower is an icon of Tokyo. Now Tokyo skytree is taller, but I prefer Tokyo Tower and it is also so tall. It's difficult to get the whole body in the frame! Illuminated tower at night is so romantic and beautiful. I recommend going there at night.

What would be a trip to Tokyo without visiting Tokyo Tower
This place was on my "I-need-to-visit-this-place" list for quiet a while and I don't regret visiting it at all. It's such a typical sign of Tokyo, that I had to visit it one day in my life. You have a nice view around the city and can even show how brave you are while standing on a window. Looking down to the city. Visit Tokyo Tower just before sun sets! Like this I could enjoy the beauty of Tokyo during day, all colored in red and in the end during its most beautiful time: night

Skytree is better, but this place isn't bad
I'm just going to come right out with it. Skytree is waaaay better/nicer. Though more expensive. But you get what you pay for. Tokyo tower is slightly cheaper. So if you consider yourself a "thrifty traveler" then Tokyo tower is right up your alley. It's also bigger than the Eiffel Tower, take that France! muahaha. If you just want a pretty sweet view of Tokyo without having to drag yourself over to Sumida ward (East-side Tokyo) than Tokyo Tower will do just fine. Sometimes has performing Monkeys around the base of the tower. Though they are kind of sad to watch.

Great sightseeing and entertainment spot
The Tokyo Tower is especially good for making pictures of the Roppongi district, which has lots of high and impressive buildings. At night the Tower is shining in yellow, so it's also quite nice to see the Tower from outside and standing directly in front of it. If you are a Anime-fan of the show "One Piece" you should also visit the lower floors, because there are One Piece fan shops, games, and a live show, which takes place every day.
