Tokyo Tower is a communications and observation tower located in Shiba Park, Minato-ku, Tokyo. Inspired by the design of the Eiffel Tower in France, Tokyo Tower stands at an impressive 332 metres tall.
There are two observation decks giving stunning views over the whole of Tokyo and beyond. The first observation deck is located at 150 metres, and the second Top Deck at 250 metres.
Beneath the two observation decks are a variety of restaurants, museums and shops. The towers primary use is to broadcast signals for Japanese media companies such as NHK, TBS and Fuji TV, but it is well worth a visit if you are in Tokyo and fancy something exciting to do for a couple of hours.

I moved to Japan in late 2007 and lived in the beautiful mountainous setting of Nagano-ken for two very fun years. Although the scenery in Nagano was stunning and the snowboarding conditions second to none, I decided to try life in the fast lane and moved to Tokyo in 2009. I have been in Tokyo since, and am currently based in Nakano-ku. Living in Tokyo fascinates me on a daily basis, there are so many interesting people to meet, places to discover and adventures to be had. My passion is photography, both analogue and digital and I also enjoy snowboarding, cycling and traveling in my spare time.
