About

The Tokyo Tower is a communications and observation tower in the Shiba-koen district of Minato, Tokyo, Japan, built in 1958. At 332.9 meters (1,092 ft), it is the second-tallest structure in Japan. The structure is an Eiffel Tower-inspired lattice tower that is painted white and international orange to comply with air safety regulations. The tower's main sources of income are tourism and antenna leasing. Over 150 million people have visited the tower. FootTown, a four-story building directly under the tower, houses museums, restaurants, and shops. Departing from there, guests can visit two observation decks. The two-story Main Deck (formerly known as the Main Observatory) is at 150 meters (490 ft), while the smaller Top Deck (formerly known as the "Special Observatory") reaches a height of 249.6 meters (819 ft). The names were changed following renovation of the top deck in 2018.[4] The tower is repainted every five years, taking a year to complete the process. In 1961, transmission antennae were added to the tower. They are used for radio and television broadcasting and now broadcast signals for Japanese media outlets such as NHK, TBS, and Fuji TV. The height of the tower was not suitable for Japan's planned terrestrial digital broadcasting planned for July 2011 for the Tokyo area. A taller digital broadcasting tower, known as Tokyo Skytree, was completed on 29 February 2012. Since its completion in 1958, Tokyo Tower has become a prominent landmark in the city, and frequently appears in media set in Tokyo.
Opening hours: 09:00 - 22:30

I went to Tokyo Tower for the first time in a while. It was sunny and the red tower was shining in the picture! Last time I went up by elevator, but this time I climbed 600 steps to the main deck. It got higher and higher, and I was able to see the beautiful scenery all the way up. My muscles were sore, but it was a wonderful experience! On the top deck tour, I was given lemon water as a welcome drink, and the cute Tokyo Tower and Mt. We also took a commemorative photo, and above all, it was great to see the best scenery! It was interesting to see the ground through the glass. The Tokyo Tower-shaped crunch chocolate souvenir I bought on the way home was also cute and delicious♪ I want to go see Tokyo Tower at night next time.

Maybe it's because it's a weekday, but I was happy to be able to participate in whatever time I wanted, although the time to enter the top deck will be specified at the time of redemption at the Tokyo Tower Operation Center. It was cloudy and the scenery was a little disappointing, but it was fun. It reminded me of an old school trip.

I decided to take on the challenge of climbing the outside stairs of Tokyo Tower during the mid-autumn moon, so I used this place just before I left. The ticket office is very crowded. However, I was guided by the person in charge and exchanged the voucher immediately after the long line. I was very happy to be able to purchase it cheaply and easily like a special treatment.

I visited to show the Tokyo Tower to children during Golden Week. Perhaps because it was the first Golden Week with no restrictions, or because the Taiwan Festival was being held, there were a lot of people. Before I arrived, I thought it would be enough to have fun in the shopping area, but as I got closer, I was told "I want to climb!". Even so, there is already a long line of ticket purchases. For the time being, search online while lining up and purchase tickets with Klook. The moment I got into the elevator, I heard a staff member telling other staff members that they were sold out today. (Around 2 pm) In addition, I think that it was a very busy day, such as playing a mystery solving event treasure hunting game and having a baby playset Hua Hua outside. Even so, all the staff are polite, smiling and the cash register is smooth. There were attempts to entertain tourists everywhere and I enjoyed it very much.

On the Tokyo Tower official website, it was not possible to make online reservations for tickets for the GW period from May 3rd to 5th. However, because I was able to make a reservation here, I only had to issue tickets at the operation center on the day of the viewing, so I didn't have to wait in line to buy tickets on the day. I'm glad I bought it.

I bought the ticket in advance, so I was able to go up to the main deck smoothly. Because it is GW, the ticket office is a long line ... I couldn't line up and gave up. The inside wasn't so crowded and I could see the scenery slowly, so I went home for a cup of tea at the cafe inside. It was my first time to climb Tokyo Tower, so the children were overjoyed, so I'm glad I took them.

I got on the train from Onarimon station, but I can't buy a 24-hour ticket at this station, so I explained to the station staff and moved to the nearest Otemachi station. No cost. Tokyo Tower is also convenient because you can get on the elevator just by showing the QR code. Both can be used separately, but it is also convenient to use one QR code. I want to use it again.
