Tokyo Tower, the City Landmark
Towering 333 meters above the ground is one of Tokyo’s most iconic landmarks, Tokyo Tower. Not only is it a tall structure, but it also serves as a monument of Japan’s post-war economic power with its construction in 1958.
Just as impressive as its history is the tower’s stunning light display at night, where up to 276 lights shine from the monument onto the bustle of Tokyo underneath.
The tower also offers one of the tallest observation decks in the city, where you can enjoy uninterrupted 360 degree views of Tokyo. Also, take note of the various events held at the tower, which you can add to your to-do list when you visit this landmark.
