Exploring Japan: Tokyo Tower at night – March 21, 2010

On the same day that I visited Ueno Zoo, I went to Tokyo Tower.  It was nighttime, so there would be great night views of Tokyo.  Tokyo Tower is located in Minato Ward, near Roppongi, Azabu Juban, and many embassies.  Tokyo Tower is 333 metres tall, and is a larger replica of the Eiffel Tower.  It’s painted orange and white according to aviation laws.  It’s a TV antenna, but with the analog terrestrial TV broadcast signals ending next month, Tokyo Sky Tree is taking over for digital broadcasts.  There are two observation levels in Tokyo Tower.  The pictures below taken from the tower are on the lower deck.  Enjoy!

Tokyo Tower is brightly lit at night in this picture from down the street.

Looking way up in this closeup.

Looking way up! This is right at the bottom of the tower.

Tokyo looks great at night.

Lots of tall buildings.

Here's another view.

Sorry, this one was a bit blurry.

In Tokyo Tower, there's a window looking straight down. Can you do it?

Tokyo Tower isn’t hard to find.  It’s really tall.  But here’s a map of the area:
