Tokyo Tower - the iconic symbol of Tokyo 東京タワー

4-2-8 Shibakoen, Minato City, Tokyo

The original icon of Japan's capital

Tokyo Tower, the height of 333 meters was built in 1958 and celebrates its 65th anniversary this year.


  • Combining sightseeing and exercise by climbing up the outdoor staircase to the tower's main deck
  • Seeing the city far below your feet while standing on glass floor sections

You can choose to take the elevator or walk up 600 steps to the main deck, located 150 meters above the ground. If you are lucky, on sunny days you can even catch a glimpse of Mt. Fuji rising in the distance. If you are not afraid of heights, try standing on the glass floor sections and look directly down to the ground—almost 145 meters under your feet. The very top deck— up at 250 meters— was renovated in early 2018, adding topsy-turvy mirrors and LED lighting effects to give the feeling of floating above the city in a high-tech spaceship.

Tokyo Tower and the surrounding area sees a variety of exciting events throughout the year. Even on rainy days, you can look out from the top of the tower and see the scenery below as it changes with the seasons. Tokyo Tower offers several shops, amusement facilities and cafes where you can purchase light snacks, drinks, or more substantial meals to give you the energy to explore nearby Zojoji Temple and Shiba Park.
