Tokyo Tower - Second Tallest Tower in Japan

Tokyo Tower stands at an impressive 333 meters high (1,092 Feet) as one of Japan's most prominent landmarks. Located in Minato, Tokyo Tower was the tallest structure in Japan from when it was built in 1958 until 2012, being overtaken by the recently completed Tokyo Sky Tree. Visitors can take an elevator or climb up 600 steps to the main observatory to view the city from a staggering 150 meters (492 Feet). The main observatory has a small souvenir area, as well as a panoramic design so guests can enjoy full view of the Tokyo skyline. The main observatory also has a special glass floor to stand over at a height of 145 meters (475 Feet). If you're willing to go even higher, there is the top deck at the 250 meter mark (820 Feet) that was recently renovated for an incredible, full-view of the city.

In case you can't handle heights, Tokyo Tower also offers other great activities, including the Tokyo One Piece Tower section dedicated to the hit manga One Piece, as well as the Tokyo Tower Aquarium. At the base of the Tower is Foot Town, filled with shops and restaurants selling exclusive Tokyo Tower goods. It won't be a surprise if you find your favorite Anime character featured on the goods at Tokyo Tower, so be sure to explore Foot Town before you head out!

While visiting the tower for the views are fun, Tokyo Tower also has special illumination shows depending on the seasons. The tower lights in a warmer orange color during the winter and cool whites and light orange during the summer. There is also a special illumination called the diamond veil, which resembles a rainbow with seven colors that sparkle like a diamond. The Christmas illumination is one of the best at the end of the year, but the Valentines and St. Patrick's day lights are also worth checking out. If you want to get a bird's eye view of the city, you can enjoy Tokyo Tower during our line of Anime Japan Tours as we explore the lively Tokyo One Piece Tower. Or skip the anime and add Tokyo Tower to your itinerary on a private Japan tour package or after a free day in Tokyo!
