Tōkyō Tower 東京タワー

Tōkyō Tower is a communications and observation tower located in Shiba Park and at 1,091 ft it is the tallest artificial structure in Japan. The structure is an Eiffel Tower-inspired lattice tower that is painted white and international orange to comply with air safety regulations. I just could not help myself I know this was a total tourist spot but I felt that a trip to Tōkyō was just not complete without it. I missed the tower lights, which is what i was hoping for, by just a few minutes but I had to leave to meet with friends and arriving late in Japan is extremely bad form.


  1. You have such a talent for capturing the beauty and essence of a place. I have visited Japan over a dozen times as a tourist and rushed from place to place. I am realizing that I failed to really see the specialness of some of the attractions visited. Thank you for these beautiful, unique photos and the helpful, informative comments. It's like seeing Japan again, this time with a deeper appreciation through different lens. I am thoroughly enjoying this site; keep posting!
