The resemblance to the Eiffel Tower is deliberate, as is the superior height – it is 13m 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, Shinjuku’s Tocho or Tokyo Sky Tree offer impressive city views as well. But with the opening of Tokyo Tower's top deck in spring 2018, the capital's landmark is back in the race for the most stunning views.

The observatory is laid out in a futuristic design with mirror walls, providing excellent Instagram-worthy shots. As the city's most recognisable structure, it's also the most striking attraction when viewed at night from any of the other observation decks.

What’s on

Tokyo Tower Milky Way Illumination

Enjoy a late night stroll under an artificial Milky Way at Tokyo Tower’s main deck. As an alternative experience for astronomy enthusiasts, Tokyo Tower has recreated the Milky Way using 30,000 LED lights, so you can gaze up at the (artificial) stars in the middle of the city. Every 15 minutes, the blue LED lights that represent the starry sky turn pink and gold, while the Milky Way changes from white to a rainbow of seven colours. This special effect makes the Tokyo skyline look even more mesmerising, as if our beloved city is under a magical starry night. The event takes place from 9.00am until 10.30pm.
