Tokyo Tower Tours

At 1,092 feet (333 meters) tall, Tokyo Tower is an impressive Japanese landmark offering 360-degree views of the city from its two observation decks. Built in 1958 from red and white latticed steel, the Eiffel Tower-inspired structure houses a wax museum, a Shinto Shrine, an aquarium, restaurants, and other entertainment spots. 
 
The Basics
Tokyo Tower’s two high-rise observatories are its most popular draws, with panoramic views that show off the city below. The lower main observatory sits on top of Foot Town, Tokyo Tower’s entertainment hub, while the more lofty special observatory is at 820 feet (250 meters) and offers views of Mt. Fuji on clear days. 

Most city sightseeing tours include a visit to Tokyo Tower, whether you choose an option by bus, bike, or Go-Kart. Private and small-group tours are available, with some combo tours also including a Sumida River cruise. To see Tokyo Tower from above, opt for a private helicopter tour of the city. 
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Tokyo Tower is a must-see for photographers and first-time visitors to the city. 
  • The tower contains multiple restaurants, ranging from a food court to formal sit-down venues. 
  • Both viewing observatories are accessible by elevator.
  • If you are afraid of heights, Tokyo Tower may not be for you. 
 
How to Get There
Tokyo Tower is located in the Shiba-koen district of Minato. Public transportation is a good way to travel in the city, and the nearest subway stop is Akabanebashi Station on the Oedo subway line. Turn left out of the ticket gate and head to the Akabanebashi Crossing exit. From there, it’s a 5-minute walk to Tokyo Tower.
 
When to Get There
The main observatory is open from 9am to 11pm daily, while the special observatory is open from 9am to 10pm. Arrive at dusk to see impressive nighttime views of Tokyo’s city lights. 

Tokyo Tower Highlights 
On the first floor travelers will find an aquarium of more than 50,000 fish, a souvenir shop, and multiple restaurants. The second floor houses the food court featuring Japanese eats like ramen and soba noodles, as well as pizza and ice cream. On the third floor is a wax museum and the Guinness World Record Museum. The fourth floor houses an arcade center, while the top floor holds the special observatory and roof garden.
