Tokyo Tower at Night, Shiba Park, Minato, Tokyo, Kanto Region, Honshu Island, Japan

Tokyo Tower is a famous Japanese and Tokyo icon and landmark located in Shiba Park, Minato, Tokyo, Japan. At 332.5 metres (1,091 ft), it is the tallest artificial structure in Japan. Tokyo Tower is 13 meters taller than its model, the Eiffel Tower of Paris, and the world’s tallest self-supporting steel tower. It has been made famous by its appearance in many movies and cartoons. It was completed in the year 1958 as a symbol for Japan’s rebirth as a major economic power, and serves as a television and radio broadcast antenna and tourist attraction.

Visitors can ascend to the main observatory at 150 meters and the special observatory at 250 meters to get a bird’s eye view of Tokyo. Under good weather conditions, Mount Fuji can be seen in the distance. Unfortunately in Tokyo it is not possible to use tripod and black curtain (to get rid of reflections) for photography on any observation deck.
