Tokyo Tower is Japan’s answer to the Eiffel Tower, and by answer I mean that the Eiffel Tower was used as a model and Tokyo Tower was built to be 13 meters taller than it’s sibling in France. This 333 meter steel structure is the largest self supporting steel structure in the world and has television and radio broadcast attenas and is a tourist attraction. The main observatory offers great views, but personally I prefer Roppongi Hills Tower.
To get to the Tokyo Tower take JR Yamanote Line or the JR Kehin-Tohoku Line and get off at Hamamatsucho, which is about 9 minutes from Tokyo Station (same direction as Shinjuku). For more information see the official site of the Tokyo Tower.
