The 150m Main Observatory, where you can get a sense of Tokyo's cityscape in all three dimensions.
Plus, the 250m Special Observatory, with a perfect bird's-eye view of the whole of Tokyo.
Here is an introduction to Tokyo Tower’s two viewing platforms.
The Special Observatory at 250 above sea level is 100 meters higher than the Main Observatory, and you can enjoy a more comprehensive view of the city of Tokyo from there.
An SF-like spatial production was added to the interior of the Special Observatory, making visitors feel like they were floating and walking in the space of the future and the universe. In particular, at night the LEDs (light emitting diodes) inlaid under the windows give glimmering light in three colors blue, red and green, and together with the audio effect, you can enjoy the night view under your eyes in a dramatic atmosphere full of fantasy.
“Cafe La Tour”and “Club333 Stage”are located on the 1st floor of the Main Observatory. Come enjoy a cup of tea with breath-taking views, or enjoy live music on the stage, which enhances the magnificence of Tokyo’s night view. Be sure to experience the thrill of standing on the glass floor called “Lookdown Window”!
We lend out binoculars at no charge so that you can enjoy great views from the observation deck of the Tokyo Tower. Please enjoy looking at every area of Tokyo with these light, stylish binoculars.
Lending hours: 9:00 to 18:00 (final lending time: 17:00)
