The Tokyo Tower

The Tokyo Tower

The Tokyo Tower was modeled on the Eiffel Tower but is 13 meters taller than its model. The height of the Tokyo Tower is 333 meters and it is a truly imposing building. The tower is a symbol of Japan's post-war reconstruction. In a way, Tokyo thus indicated a return to the world stage as the dominant power. The Tokyo Tower was the tallest building in the country until 2012 when it was overtaken by the Tokyo Television Tower.

An elevator or staircase leads to the main deck and is located at a height of 150 meters. The tower offers a beautiful view of the city. The floor of the observatory is made of glass so that visitors can stand on it and observe the ground below them. We do not recommend people suffering with claustrophobia to look down.

Within the tower there is a souvenir shop, but also a bar where you can take a break, drink coffee or juice. The upper deck is located at a height of 250 meters. You can take the elevator from the lower to the upper deck. This is the third tallest observatory in the city.

Every five years, the tower is repainted, and this process takes about a year. The two main sources of income for the Tokyo Tower are antenna rental and tourism. According to official statistics, the tower has been visited by about 150 million visitors since it opened to the public.

The tower now broadcasts analogue television, digital television, radio and digital radio.
