Visiting Tokyo Tower: A Dream Come True
Being an avid manga fan when I was much younger, I have known Tokyo Tower well through the mangas. Especially in my favourite manga, Magic Knight Rayearth, where the main characters first met each other at Tokyo Tower.
So even though there’s a newer Observatory which is the Tokyo SkyTree, I know Tokyo Tower is the one I have to visit! It’s the landmark that I die die have to visit, fulfilling that little childhood dream of mine.
Heading to Tokyo Tower
Tokyo Tower can be accessible from several train stations. Akabanebashi and Kamiyacho are two train stations that allow you to reach Tokyo tower under a 10 minutes walk. So depending on where you’re from, take the train to the nearest station and take a short walk towards the tower!
No need to worry about being lost, just look up and search for the tower and walk towards it! 😀
Tickets are at 900 yen per person! Which is a lot cheaper as compared to SkyTree.
A shot of the Tokyo Tower up close. It’s really awesome to finally be there looking up at the tower.
Being an observatory tower, there’s really nothing much except for the city views at the top of the tower. If you are up for something more exciting, you can pay extra to climb up nearer to the top of the tower. There’s this photo taking spot in the tower where the friendly staff are more than willing to take a photo for you with your own cameras if you allow them to take one for a printout. Of course, they are selling the photos and you can choose not to buy if you don’t want to. They are selling it at 1300 yen which is pretty affordable to me so I got it as a souvenir. 🙂
The famous Tokyo Tower Reflection. I’ve read all about it and feels so happy to be finally able to see it with my own eyes! The roads are shaped in a way that it seems like a reflection of the tower. Fascinating isn’t it?
The tower looks super pretty at night too! Such a lovely view to take it! I’m really happy and satisfied to be spending my evening at the Tokyo Tower.
Heading to Tokyo, Japan soon? Check out HotelsCombined to hunt for the best hotel deals for your stay! So much more convenient to be searching through deals with just one site instead of opening up all the different sites and slowly comparing one by one!
It will be great to search for a hotel with a view of Tokyo Tower! Imagine waking up and going back to the lovely view of the tower every day!
There’s still a couple of posts left for Tokyo and I’m heading to Bangkok in a couple of days! Stay tuned for more of my travel posts!
