    Tokyo Tower is a Japanese icon and famous site in Tokyo. Tokyo Tower features public observation deck and cafe. The Tokyo Tower design is based on the Eiffel Tower, but is 333 meters tall (9 meters taller than the Eiffel Tower) making it the world’s highest self-supporting iron tower. Tokyo Tower has two observation decks: Main Observatory at 150m and the Special Observatory at 250m.

    Tokyo Tower is an icon of Japan which is primarily a tv antenna tower styled like the Eiffel Tower. Tokyo Tower is also a popular tourist destination as an observation deck which provides views over the Tokyo Bay Area and of some of the surrounding areas. On very rare occasions, when the air is particularly clear, you can see Mt. Fuji. Over the years much of the view from Tokyo Tower has been obscured by the many other tall buildings in Tokyo, many of which are taller than Tokyo Tower.

    Tokyo Tower has two observation decks: Main Observatory is at 145m and the Special Observatory at 250m. Tokyo Tower also features an aquarium, a wax museum and a Trick Art Gallery plus several food outlets.

    While Tokyo Tower is the most famous observation deck in Tokyo, it now has to compete with many much taller ones including the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building in Shinjuku, which has free entry, and the new Tokyo SkyTree, which is one of the tallest structure in the world.

      Tokyo Tower looks great from the distance, particularly at night. Unfortunately it is no longer tall enough to be one of the top observations decks.
