About Tokyo Tower
Tokyo Tower, still a beloved symbol of Tokyo, was completed in December 1958. Officially known as the “Japan Radio Tower,” it was built to unite the many radio towers that were in disarray at the time of its construction.
At 333 meters tall, it was the tallest radio tower in the world at the time, surpassing the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and was loved for many years as a symbol of Tokyo.
Tokyo Tower has two observation decks: the 150-meter Main Deck and the 250-meter Top Deck. The Main Deck offers a three-dimensional view of Tokyo, while the Top Deck, which was renovated in 2018, offers a leisurely, tour-style view of the entire Tokyo area, perfect for those looking for a luxurious experience.
After buying a ticket and riding the elevator, you will first arrive at the 150-meter Main Deck. The Main Deck is full of tricks to enjoy the tower as well as the view.
