By now you probably already know, that I am very fascinated by high buildings. The Tokyo Tower is no exception. Quite the opposite.
I cannot put in words how incredible the view up here is. In Tokyo I have been already up the Skytree and it was great. I also recommend going up the Metropolitan Government building in Shinjuku, but if you are short on time, scratch all that and go up Tokyo Tower. It’s absolutely fabulous. The fee for the main observation deck is 900¥ and for additional 700¥ you can go up to 250 metres (That’s a lot cheaper than the Skytree). To make my point clear, here are some pictures. Obviously it is by far better to see it with your own eyes. (The following pictures are from the main observation deck only, it’s at 150m.)
The amazing thing is, that you cannot, by any means, make out where Tokyo stops – it seems to go on forever. And ever. I was especially intrigued by the night view of Odaiba. I can highly recommend going up to the top, I find the view just breathtaking. (The following pictures have been taken on the way to or on the top platform.)
It should be mentioned, that there is a cafe up there and a stage where (apparently) frequently events are hold. There is also a look down window, where you can really appreciate the height.
The elevator ride to the top is also quite interesting as you can look out of the window and see the amazing engineering fly by.
If you have time at the end of the day, the view from Zōjō-ji is truly amazing.
