Located in central Tokyo, the 333m-high Tokyo Tower was built in 1958 and provides a great bird’s eye view of Tokyo, Mt Fuji, and its sky-soaring counterpart, the Tokyo Skytree, on a clear day. This was Japan’s tallest structure until the completion of the Tokyo Skytree in 2012. The main observatory, at 150m high, can be reached via elevator or, if you’re feeling brave, a 600-step stairway, both of which are ticketed. The Tokyo Tower sometimes holds special events on Valentine’s Day or during Christmas season, when the tower exterior is illuminated, and the club on the observatory deck level holds various live music events every night with various themes. Great news for fans of manga One Piece, there is also an indoor One Piece theme park at the foot of the tower, the first large-scale One Piece theme park, where you can walk into interactive attractions featuring One Piece characters, watch live shows, eat character foods at the themed restaurant and buy original One Piece goods at the souvenir shop.
