Tokyo Tower is a landmark tower of Tokyo and the observatory deck with a 360-degree bird’s-eye view of the city is popular among tourists, both from inside and outside of Japan. Take in the view of Tokyo at 250 meters above ground :)
At the observation deck of Tokyo Tower, there is the “main observation deck” and the “special observation deck”. At the main observation deck, there is an “observation cafe”, in which you can enjoy an afternoon tea while taking in the view of the city.
Here, you can take a different elevator up to the special observation deck, heading even more upwards!
The view at 250 meters above ground is waiting for you after the elevator ride.
At Tokyo Tower, observation deck is not the only thing to check out. Stop by the Foot Town as well, in which you can find an attraction called “Tokyo ONE PIECE Tower”, based on the beloved comic in Japan “ONE PIECE”. This facility just opened in March 2015 but is already popular with children and adults alike.
There are attractions, events, and games available, in which you can experience the world of “ONE PIECE”.
