Notice: The Tokyo Tower Special Observatory (250m Height) Will Be Closed For Repairs

At this time, the Tokyo Tower Special Observatory (250m Height) will suspend operations for roughly 10 months,
due to renovations set to begin from Monday, October 3rd, 2016.
The repairs are projected to finish in rhe summer of 2017.
The Main Observatory (150m Height) will continue regular operations.

This renovation is not limited to the interior of the Special Observatory.
The project will completely remodel the elevator connecting the Main Observatory (150m Height)
to the Special Observatory, as well as the elevator boarding area.
We plan to unveil the new and improved Special Observatory in the summer of 2017.

In December of 2018, it will have been 60 years since the opening of Tokyo Tower.
With an eye towards the future, we will aim to improve our services and convenience even further.
To that end, after the Special Observatory renovations are finished,
we plan to carry out other large-scale construction projects in stages,
including a renovation of the Main Observatory and a repaint of the tower.

We humbly apologize for the inconvenience, and greatly appreciate your understanding.
