"TOKYO TOWER" Tokyo Tower Tip by Adeline_Foo
Tokyo Tower, Tokyo: 55 reviews and 109 photos
Visit Tokyo's version of the Eiffel Tower, the TOKYO TOWER. Built in 1958 to carry television transmissions, it now broadcasts all eight of Tokyo's channels as well as FM radio stations. Cameras at the 250m level keep an eye on the city's notorious traffic and send pictures to a central control room, the source of the information flashed up along the expressway. The tower is the world's tallest freestanding iron structure. The view from the 150m level is not remarkable; you need to pay the extra charge to go to 250m if the day is clear enough to make it worthwhile
Address: 4-2-8 Shiba Koen, Minato-ku
Directions: At Kamiyacho subway, emerge fro mExit 1 and head uphill. It takes about 7 minutes to walk to the foot of the tower.
