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 this spring, the capital's landmark is back in the race for the most stunning views. The observatory is layed 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.

Tokyo Tower was a very pleasant sight and I enjoyed it the views of the area were first rate & the area has many  good shops as well as being close to the subway lines A big 10-4 to this one!


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.
