Not much to see at the observation deck, I was expecting a lot of skyscrapers but actually there is not enough to define a unique Tokyo skyline. It was good though that we went up right before sunset so the changing view due to sunset made the experience worthwhile. They also have light and sounds inside when it gets dark, that also makes the trip a bit more interesting. You can also visit the Tokyo One Piece indoor adventure, it's more suitable for teens though, and for One Piece followers.

An iconic tourist attraction and It didn't disappoint. Good views of Tokyo and you will be amazed at how they can fit all the skyscrapers in the city. I went on a very good day and was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of Mt. Fuji. It is not the highest building in Tokyo or the newest but it has its charm. I would highly recommend coming here if you are visiting Tokyo.

My recommendation for people who want to come to Tokyo tower is please come around the time of sunset. The view is very beautiful, the night view also great. You can go to the observation desk for only 900yen, much cheaper compared to Tokyo Skytree but the view from the observation desk is also beautiful. Enjoy sunset until the night time in this place especially, you will enjoy it. Please note the weather.

The iconic Tokyo Tower is a must to visit. I would recommend to visit it around one or two hour before sunset so that you can see the Tokyo Tower light up at night, up close. There are a lot of souvenir, snack, and food stores in the mall below it. You can stock up your souvenirs or snacks to bring back to your family and friends here. There is also a One Piece indoor theme park, but I did not get the chance to go in.

Best place ever in my life!!! I visited One piece theme tower at twice in a year. They gave me unforgettable memories. The staff are not good at English. But, some games available Japanese, English, Chinese, and Korean. If you come early, you can even take a picture with the actors. And They have thema at toilet!! 😂 Then there is Gala show and it changes every season. If you are not a big fan of One piece, you can enjoy it. The show is amazing.

Not really a favorite place of mine. Been living in Tokyo for 2 years now and have been to Tokyo tower 3 times, but never deliberately. Once with the school and twice to show my friends/family around. Look, having to pay 800(?) Yen to just go up some meters is just not worth it. And if you wanna go to the highest point which is i think around 300 meters, you gotta day goodbye to around 2800 yen. Just not worth it. Oh and dont forget all the tourists - that only makes it worse. Still, its got decent shops on the first and second floor, so thats cool I guess.

This is the tower that you could observe entire city with great view. By the way the height of the floors is quite low. The photo taken at the top by shooter is pricey but it is fine as you don't have to buy it and also you have a sample, which is nice. Tip: go on a clear sky day and visit the temple near by.

The views here are spectacular! It is worth the price to go to the top deck. The prerecorded audio tour is easy to use. The hospitality upon arrival mid deck is pleasantly surprising as you are given a complimentary drink while waiting for the elevator to take you to the top. The visual and audio tour makes it easy to put together the information with the incredible 360 degree views of Tokyo. The mirrored installation is cool too. There are cool little vendor stalls for shopping as well on the second floor.

I was a little dubious about the value of going up yet another tall.city building. It was actually quite a fun evening. They do the getting you up there but quite well. So although there are a few stops along the way they hand out an audio guide in your language and it is quite informative (this is for the "tour to the top" ticket). And the views over the city at night were wonderful. It is of course fairly expensive but if you are in the area and it is getting dark I would recommend it if you've got the spare money. There are definitely better bang for your buck experiences if money is getting tight though.

It's Tokyo Tower.. the view is better from other places but the tower is an icon. What was really great was the ONE PIECE museum/display. Was a great themed area with stuff to do and see. Kids loved it. adults also thought it was good

Absolutely wonderful views at night time - I loved seeing all the city lights! There is a cafe on the main deck and it is very fun to eat and drink with a view out of the tower! We were going to go to the very top and pay extra, but the weather was bad and so the top deck was closed. However, the main deck was just as good. There is a nice souvenir shop with some lovely post cards of the tower; it is also family friendly. A good day out if you like landscapes and are not afraid of heights!

There was construction when we visited so we could not go up after the 3rd floor or so. It's away from other locations so getting there is a little harder. Either taxi or take the train and walk about 15min up hill to get there. Photos of the tower from afar is very nice. If you visit during the evening and see the tower at night, it is a great photo op.
Julie Tran | May 20, 2018
Quite nice 360 panoramic views over two levels. The lower level is slightly less crowded but the view is just as good. There’s also a glass window that you can look down through. Came during day time. There’s a souvenir shop but our tour guide said to not even bother shopping there because it’s way over priced. On the ground floor there are fish banners streamed overhead and a small archway of flowers and lights which is nice to take Instagram-type photos with

It's called "love tower" for a reason. It's quite warm inside the main deck and the lighting is dim, perfect for couples and families. They don't enforce time limit on main deck and it's much cheaper than top deck. The view is breathtaking! Definitely worth the cost (900 yen per person).
Tiffany Lin | Jul 5, 2018
Enclosed area in the observation deck. The main observation deck has a light show that was cool but didn't really make sense. The lower level to the elevator down has some really nice lights. The stores in the tower close a lot earlier than the rest of the tower, but you have to go up before something like 10 pm, so go a bit early if you want to go shopping.

Must see in Tokyo. Gives you great views of the city skyline. There is also a “glass walk” that is terrifying but fun! You can see hundreds of feet below you as you walk on top of it. I also like how the place had Braille plates. Stayed here for around an hour and that’s about all the time you need. Very family friendly and picturesque.
Jason Trask | Jul 3, 2018
Great views of Tokyo from here. Easy to get to by subway with only a short walk through the park. You can buy just the main observation deck or add the top deck experience for a higher view. The top deck has an interesting mirror display but gets a little tight with the crowds. If you are doing the tower I would say do the full thing.
Garrett Shubert | Jun 17, 2018
A great landmark in the center of Tokyo! For a long time it was the tallest structure. It is painted in the iconic orange and white colors of tall towers in Tokyo. When you go up to the top, there is an audio tour guide in most languages. There is a lot to be learned from listening to the recording. There is a fun exhibit where you can learn about the history of the tower. A breathtaking view from the top!

From check-n to check out, it was clear the staff was dedicated to being as accommodating as possible. The hotel was perfectly clean, and the cleaning staff for our room was great. The concierge was very helpful, and we could exchange our dollars for yen in the lobby. On American standards, I would not call it spacious, but we had an adequate amount of room. If spacious on an American standard is important, I would recommend the premium room with 33% more space. If I ever need a room in downtown Tokyo again, I would stay at the Park again, with the premium upgrade. It was an excellent hotel experience.

The iconic place for Tokyo and if you have the chance this would be go to place for how popular it is as a landmark for Japan. It has two decks to tour which is the lower and higher deck. I went up to the lower deck twice and it is already high enough to get a 360 degrees view of the entire Tokyo. If you are lucky you might see mount Fuji on a clear day but unfortunately for me it has always been cloudy and misty for both of my visits. The tickets are not too expensive with 900 yen for the lower observation deck entrance and you could purchase a package price to visit both decks. There is a nice cafe up on the observation deck so it is a nice romantic spot to sip coffee while watching the sun set. Also on the lower observation deck is a souvenir shop to purchase all Tokyo tower merchandise. All the way down at the base of the tower are also a few more souvenir shops to purchase food souvenirs and more little Tokyo tower souvenirs. Tokyo banana is also sold here. It would be nice to enter the tower deck around late noon and linger around until sunset and night time as the experience is different during the day and night.

I went to the top of this tower for around 3000 yen on a clear day. The tour of the tower is very enjoyable, with an audio guide available in basically any language. The guide is informative and interesting, telling the story of how Tokyo tower was built to become the symbol of Tokyo. Also part of the tour is a photo taken by a professional. You are given a tiny copy of this for free, but you need to pay extra for the larger version. You can spend as long as you want at the top of the tower. I arrived at 5:30pm and stayed until 8, to watch the sun go down, and mount Fuji turn red. There is no place to sit at the top of the tower, but if you can stand to stand up, it's possible. In other reviews people complain that nearby skyscrapers block the view, but that is only the case on the middle deck. The view from the top is wide and uninterrupted. Is it worth the money? Yes! But if it's too painful to pull that cash out of your wallet, be aware that there are some buildings that give you access to a beautiful view like this one for free. Minus the tour, though.

😲 Amazing views, and we only went up halfway. The shops were a lot of fun and I found some great souvenirs for my family here. When my fiance and I went up halfway, we spent a lot of time enjoying the view over Tokyo. But then we went to the cafe one floor down and had the best sundae either of us have ever had 🍧💖. Overall a wonderful experience, can't wait to come back and go to the top!

This place is one of the icon of Tokyo as well as a must-visit site! If you are in town, it is recommended for you to visit Tokyo tower not on the weekend. It will be lots of visitors in the weekend. You better visit on the weekdays. Go up with a 900 Yen ticket and you see almost the whole wonder of the city. In addition, you can enjoy the One Piece store, it is no fantastic!
