About Tokyo Tower

Originally built in 1958, Tokyo Tower drew inspiration from the Eiffel Tower for its design and served as a broadcasting tower for the area. Tokyo Tower stands at 333 meters tall, making it the tallest freestanding tower at the time of its completion. Today, the tower is open to the public and offers multiple viewing experiences including a 150m and 250m observation deck, as well as glass-panel flooring for a top down view.

From the observation deck, you can see the Tokyo landscape from high above the surrounding buildings. After the two decks at the Tokyo Skytree, it is the third highest observation deck in Tokyo, and visitors can see the Tokyo Skytree and even Mount Fuji in the distance when visibility is good. Free guides are on-hand to tell you about notable buildings in the skyline, and translation services are available. The main observatory also houses Cafe la Tour, Club 333, Skywalk Window and The Sky-Tokyo Tower Official Shop.

At the base of the tower is a complex known as the FOOTTOWN, where visitors can find a variety of shops and restaurants. Foot Town also houses the Red Tokyo Tower e-sports entertainment complex, which offers various interactive games and e-sport activities.
