Announcement regarding renovation
works on the Tokyo Tower Main Deck (height 150m)


 On March 3, 2018 (Saturday), to coincide with the completion of renovation works, Nippon Television City Corporation renamed the Special Observatory (height 250m), which had been closed during the works, as the "Top Deck". In addition, we have started holding "Top Deck Tours", a hands-on observation tour available by reservation.

In conjunction with this, the Main Observatory (height 150m) has been renamed the "Main Deck". Since September 2017, the Main Deck has also been undergoing renovation works, including the replacement of window sashes. The Main Deck remains open to visitors, with work being conducted on one of its four sides at a time.

Work on the North side (facing the Imperial Palace and Marunouchi) and the East side (facing Tokyo Bay and Odaiba) has already been completed. Work on the West side (facing Roppongi and Shinjuku) will commence on September 3. Visitors will be unable to see the view from the West side from the main deck for about five months until around January 2019.

Also, after completion of work on the West side, we will commence work on the South side (facing Shinagawa and Yokohama). Please understand that, depending on the time of year, it will not be possible to look out in certain directions. We apologize for the inconvenience that this will cause and request your understanding in this matter.
