i think everybody knows tokyo tower, at least has ever seen it from a picture on the internet or from a movie…it’s the famous landmark of tokyo city, so when you visit tokyo, you have to make sure at least you take picture in front of it 😀 when the weather is good, it’s recommended to go up to the observation deck and see tokyo city view from the top…there are two observation decks in tokyo tower, the first one is on 150m height and the entrance ticket costs 820 yen, and the second one is on 250m height with additional cost of 600 yen…well, many people i know say that it’s expensive to go up there, they say that it’s not worthy to spend that much of money just to see something like that…if you like to see the whole city view, capturing a beautiful scenery of tokyo, i think it’s still worth the price…however, if you’re one of those who think it’s expensive, you can try visiting shinjuku governmental office for free (i’ve never been there but wanna go there soon)

beside the observatory deck, in the bottom part of the tower, there are also aquarium gallery, wax museum, and guinness world records museum where you have to buy the ticket also for each places…however, if you want to visit all of them, it’s better to buy the special ticket package that includes all of them (it saves you around 500 yen)…additionally, they have some souvenir shops which have various kinds of souvenir for your friends or relatives…if you’re hungry you can try the food in the food court or restaurants that’s also available there…

to go there, there are several alternatives…the closest station is Akabanebashi station of Toei Oedo line…and you can also come from Kamiyacho station (Tokyo Metro Hibiya line), Onarimon sta. (Toei Mita line), Daimon sta. (Toei Asakusa), or Hamamatsu-cho sta. (JR Yamanote/Keihin Tohoku)…
