    Two observatories offer spectacular views of Tokyo from the Tokyo Tower, which was designed after the Eiffel Tower but is orange, and stretches 42 feet higher (not that anyone's counting). Built in 1958, the tower sees a constant flux of tourists, supports radio and TV antennae, while directly underneath is "FootTown" housing a restaurant and wax museum, among other attractions.

    I feel like most observation towers in most large cities are very similar. I enjoy seeing Tokyo tower from right below much more than from the top. I also enjoyed the mid level better than the top that you pay extra money for. Once you're that high you're not able to see the details of the city as much, not to mention the floor is tiny. Don't miss the glass panel on the floor on the mid floor, makes my knees wobbly just thinking about it. The shops, and little cafeteria area down on ground (2) floor is a great place for souvenirs and little eats. The curry puffs are amazing as are the Tokyo Bananas.

    This is a great landmark to visit while in Tokyo. The view is incredible; it seems like the city is never ending! We went at night and I loved seeing all the lights of the city sparkle.

    Tokyo Tower is a fun site to check out at night when the tower is lit up in lights like the real Eiffel Tower. There are two observatory levels you can choose from. For the lower observatory, a ticket is about $15 USD per person. The view from the lower observatory is pretty good, but I would recommend going to the Government Office Observatory, which is higher and provides a larger view of the city and is completely free. Inside of Tokyo Tower itself, there are also a couple of souvenir shops, an arcade, and a couple of small museums (admission is not included with the Tokyo Tower observatory ticket). Some days you can catch some live music in the observatory levels too, which is pretty cool.

    I enjoy this tower.. not only for the views on a clear day- you can see forever... but for its proximity to other great Tokyo points of interest. When I lived in Tokyo, many of my visitors would want a tour of the city... we'd start at Tokyo Tower, then walk through Hamariku Gardens, get on the Water Taxi at the back (waterfront) of the gardens, take a water ride through Tokyo Bay and up the Sumida River, then end up in Asakusa Kanon Temple, and if time permitted we'd get on the train and visit "Electric Town" in Akihabra!- There you can see the most up and coming electronic devices and gadgets... For a quick bite to eat, try Yoshinora- Bright orange sign with black letters- their shaved roast beef over rice lunch is delicious, inexpensive, and filling!

    I think they are building a much taller version currently, but when I was there this spot offered up the best view of the city, and you could even spot Mt. Fuji from the top of the tower.

    A mini Eiffel Tower in the middle of Tokyo. Was there too early to get up and enjoy the view...
