Tokyo Tower 3.5 rating


Soaring to a height of 332.9 metres, the Tokyo Tower is the second tallest structure in Japan after the Skytree. A symbol of newly re-industrialized Japan's economic boom after World War II, the tower was built in 1958 for broadcasting television signals in the Kanto region. Inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris, it has a steel lattice structure that is painted orange and white to comply with air safety regulations. The communications tower is also a popular tourist attraction for its observation decks.

Directly underneath the tower is the 4-storey FootTown which houses the 'ONE PIECE' theme park, Tokyo Tower Aquarium, cafes, restaurants, museums, and galleries.

The Main Observatory at a height of 150 metres offers a good view of Tokyo's cityscape, while the Special Observatory at 250 metres offers panoramic views all over the city. The tower is beautifully illuminated from sunset to midnight, in cool white light during summer and warm orange light during winter. Other colors are used during special occasions.
