Tokyo Tower

The resemblance to the Eiffel Tower is deliberate, as is the superior height – it is 13m (43ft) taller than the Parisian structure. Back in 1958, when it was built, it must have been impressive. Nowadays, though, constructions such as the Mori Tower and Shinjuku’s Tocho both offer more impressive views. The tower still functions as a radio and TV mast, but its days as the observation deck of choice are long gone. The attractions inside, including a wax museum, only serve to highlight how dated the tower has become. But it remains Tokyo’s most recognisable structure and, ironically, its most striking attraction when viewed at night from any of the other observation decks.

Japans attempt at the Eiffel Tower! Just over half the size of the Sky Tower, the views from TT are not as spectacular but it is worth seeing at night as opposed to a day trip.

Also, be sure to walk around the shopping floors as there are always cool gifts knocking about that you may not find elsewhere. Definitely worth a stroll past if you don’t decide to go up to the observation deck.
