Explore the illuminations around Tokyo station, enjoy Tokyo night views from the water with a dinner cruise on Tokyo Bay, and climb to the top of Tokyo Tower and see the city lit up from above.
During the winter and holiday season, the whole area is illuminated with thousands of bulbs, however as it isn't winter, I walked around and took in the sights of Tokyo Station. You can see the Tokyo Station building in many movies and dramas. It is a stunning building and a very romantic spot when the sun goes down.
Take the Yamanote Line (heading for Shibuya) to Hamamatsucho Station. From the station, the pier is an 11 minute walk.
To finish off my Tokyo night view course in style, I visited Tokyo Tower. I got off the cruise boat and went straight to the tower. I have seen Tokyo Tower many times before, but it was the first time that I decided to go to the top. Today's tower was lit up in its regular orange color. If you check the official homepage, you can find out the dates when the special monthly light-ups happen.
