One of the Tokyo’s symbols is Tokyo Tower. The red tower was established in 1985, so it is kind of retro landmark compering with Tokyo Skytree (established 2012). Skytree is tallest structure in Japan, and of course the view from Skytree is awesome. But I also like Tokyo Tower especially the appearance (The model of Tokyo Tower is The Eiffel Tower.) Tokyo Tower is 333meters high and the main observatory is 150meters. We can go to the observatory by elevator or 600-setp staircase. In this time, we used elevator on the way (up to observatory), and staircase on the way back (down to the ground). It may be hard to go up the stairs, but it was not so hard to go down 😉

During summer time, the color of illumination is changed. And we can enjoy Milky Way illumination on first floor, and projection mapping show on second floor of main observatory🙂 I think is it is better to go to there at night (but sometimes many people there.)In addition to that, I like combination of Tokyo Tower and Zojoji (Zojoji Temple). In the New Year’s Day, number of the year was lit in Tokyo Tower. Thus, I visit to Zojyoji in New Year’s Day, I can see the special Tokyo Tower, and it is also good!


東京のシンボルともいえる東京タワー。日本一の高さを誇るスカイツリーからの景色ももちろんすばらしいけれど、やっぱり東京タワーのレトロな感じも好きです^^ 東京タワーの高さは333mで、展望台の高さは150m。先日行った際は、行きはエレベーター、帰りは600段の階段を下がってきました。あがるのは大変かもしれませんが、下がるのはそんな大変ではなかったです😉
