I visited Tokyo Tower, which just finished an entire-tower renovation that began in Sep. 2017 and which re-opened on Sep. 26, 2019. Getting off at Kamiyacho Subway Station, I headed for the tower. It has two observatories, a Main Deck (150 m high large observatory) and a Top Deck (250 m special observatory).

Tokyo Tower’s mascot character Noppon welcomed me.

Many types of towers were displayed around the entrance.

Tokyo around dusk. Very romantic.

Rainbow Bridge can be seen.

In general, it is considered that the higher observatories are, the better views are. But it is not always true. The views from the150 meter Main Deck were very dynamic and had impact because buildings were seen close up.

Then, let’s go to the 250 meter Top Deck!

When I arrived at the Top Deck, the sun had set completely.

From the Top Deck I enjoyed 360-degree panoramic, fine views. I also could see Haneda Airport in the distance.

Top Deck had a futuristic atmosphere.

I see Tokyo Tower everyday while commuting. But now I feel that is not enough; I’d like to go up again from time to time to see the best views of Tokyo.
