It’s the only way to see the most populous metropolitan area in the world entirely in just a few minutes!

Tokyo Tower stands at 332.9 meters high and was built as a radio and television broadcasting antenna and as a tourist attraction. It used to be the tallest structure in Japan until Tokyo Skytree was completed in 2012. Tokyo Skytree might be the highest and the newest skyscraper in Tokyo now but still a journey in Tokyo wouldn’t be complete without visiting the original symbol of Tokyo.

Visiting this well-known tower will never be a waste of time because there are too many things you can do inside. You can dine in some restaurants, relax in a café, and visit the gallery that displays optical illusions, including paintings and objects that visitors can interact with, or take a look in souvenir shops and you might be able to get something interesting for your family and friends back home. At the main observatory of this tower, you can see the panoramic view of the entire metropolitan. At night, you can see Tokyo Tower in bright combination of white and orange which makes it a head-turner to both locals and foreigners around Tokyo.

Unlike any other, the Tokyo Tower has two characters called Noppon. The one who wears blue dungarees is the elder brother (cool and silent shy boy), and the other who wears red dungarees is the younger brother (bright and cheerful). If you want to meet and take a picture with them, they show themselves on weekends, national holidays, spring vacation, summer vacation and winter vacation at the main entrance on the ground floor of the tower.
