Loved Through the Generations: At Tokyo Tower, experience the past, present and future in a "Top Deck Tour"!
What is Tokyo Tower?
The radio tower located in Tokyo's Minato-ku Shiba Park, affectionately known as Tokyo Tower. Its actual name is Japan Radio Tower.
Built in 1958, it is now known as a symbol and sightseeing spot of Tokyo.
As a stand-alone steal tower, until it was overtaken by the Tokyo Sky Tree it was the tallest building in Japan for 51 and a half years, but currently, after the Tokyo Sky Tree it sits as the second tallest building.
The Skytree has been completed and now the the radio tower functionality of Tokyo Tower is no longer necessary, but it still undoubtedly remains as a symbol of Tokyo!
Not to be confused with the 150m high observation platform, the tour of the 250m high top deck (its name was changed from "Special Observation Platform") is by reservation only, has no wait time, and includes a guide system in 13 different languages so even visitors from abroad can enjoy the view of Tokyo to its fullest.
The tower is magnificently illuminated as a "Landmark Light" from dusk to dawn, so we recommend visiting Tokyo Tower at night as well!
