Although “Tokyo Sky Tree” pricks up itself in the cluster of high-rise buildings in Tokyo, the Japanese Eiffel, “Tokyo Tower” remains its renown as people’s heart and soul.

What to do in Tokyo Tower?
Must-do is, of course, going up to observatories. It is great to look over Japan’s most crowded business city from the sky.

On Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday nights, music is performanced at “club 333 stage” along with the super night view.

It is very easy to find where Tokyo Tower is from its catchy looking. But be careful, it may look like you can get there in a few minutes walk, it actually is much farther than you think.

Up to you which line you would prefer, there are mainly 5 stations accesible to Tokyo tower: Akabanebashi station on Oedo line, Kamiyacho station on Hibiya line, Onarimon station on Mita line, Daimon station on Asakusa line, and Hamamatsucho station on JR line.

Amongest them, Hamamatsucho station is the biggest station you can find plenty of gourmet and fashion areas around. However, if you want to get to Tokyo Tower directly from a station, I would recommned you take Akabanebashi station.

Go to Akabane bashi exit, and here it is! This flashy tower is waiting for you.
