Tokyo Tower Tours

89 Reviews
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.
