Tokyo Tower

When I was in Japan, I went to Tokyo for two days. Since I was only going to be there for two days, I wanted to make the most of it, so I made a list of the places I just had to visit, and one of those was Tokyo Tower.

I went at night, and the view was amazing! It would've been nice to see it during the day, though -- pretty much every angle was the same thing, lights and cars on dark streets.

The ground floor of the tower was really, neat, too! There were lots of displays with the history of and information about the tower.

Also, when I was there, they were getting ready for a Michael Jackson event that was happening soon, so they were playing nothing but Michael Jackson songs there. His face was also everywhere there.

Definitely worth a visit if you want to do a little sight-seeing of Tokyo! You can pay a little extra to go to a higher observation deck, too! You have to wait your turn, but even though it was crowded when I went, the time passed really quickly. :)


  1. That's a really nice view indeed! Also, I think it all looks better at night. During the day you only see the grey of buildings and streets...

  2. aww the Tokyo tower, I've always wanted to check it out. Or justTokyo in general.

  3. I wish I could see Tokyo. How hard was it to communication there, do you speak Japanese?


  4. I'm so jealous. I've always wanted to visit Japan!

    I do speak Japanese, so reading the signs, asking simple questions, etc. wasn't a problem, but in Tokyo, most people seem to speak English when they see a foreigner anyway. :P
