My #Japan #Tokyo Travel (Part 22 #Tokyo #Tower )
Think of simultaneously view panoramic of modern-day and shimmering light night of Tokyo. We decide visit Tokyo Tower, is a communication and observation tower in the Shiba-koen district of Minato, Tokyo, Japan. Built in 1958, it has become well known to visitors around the world, not only as one of Tokyo’s popular sightseeing attractions, but also as the symbol of Tokyo an international city.
We stand in front of Tokyo Tower for view it’s beautiful. The structure is an Eiffel Tower-inspired lattice tower that is painted white and international orange to comply with air safety regulations. Height 333 meters (1,092ft), it is made of prefabricated steel. Tokyo Tower may no longer be the tallest structure in Japan, nor a full-fledged broadcasting tower, as Tokyo Skytree now holds that joint title. But it is still one of the most popular places for tourists to visit.
At night, you also can appreciate the luminous of Tokyo Tower, that use two kind of light; they are “Landmark Light”, and the “Diamond Veil”. Tokyo Tower’s Landmark light is light up with 180 light bulbs, suspending its beautiful in the night sky. Note: Diamond veil is lit only on Saturdays during the two hours between 20:00 – 22:00. It is 17 layers of light may each change into 7 different colors and total of 276 lights shine outwards from the Tokyo Tower. Because of on Saturday we have planning for visit other destination, so it is regret have not coming here.
Tokyo Tower has three parts open to the public: “MAIN DECK” + “Top Deck” + FOOTTOWN.In the Tokyo Tower, visitor can visit two observation decks. The Main Observatory is at 150 meters (490 ft) with cost 900 yen for adult. The Tower Top deck reaches a height of 250 meters (820 ft) with cost 2800 yen for adult（150meters + 250meters）. We went to visit there on February and the Tower’s Top deck was renovated. So we only buy the two-story Main Observatory. Note: It reopened to the public on March 3, 2018.
Wait for elevator and Tour participants will be guided to the 2nd floor of the Main Deck. Walk out from the elevator, where the Deck will be enveloped by geometric windows, one of the deck’s four side is closed for renovation, but it still open for the other three sides. We enjoy for view myriad skyscrapers below them, all neatly packed in the busy city, that immerse us in the atmosphere of a future metropolis. Use our eye for view the night sky fused with the beauty of the lights installed on the various parts of the high-rise buildings.
We walk to the 1st floor, because of a relatively moderate height; we can nearly view of the city building despite. This is a chance to see Japanese beauty at its fullest. On the 1st floor of Main desk, one of the area called “Skywalk Window”, can stand 145 meters high overlooking the foot, it is one of selling point in the Tokyo Tower. If you are not afraid of high, you can look down. It also have a souvenir shop and a cafe where can enjoy some food at here.
From the elevator, go down to the Tower and visit for the FooTTown, FooTTown consists of the sixth floor including top to bottom floor. In addition of the ticket office on the first floor, it also includes souvenir shops, restaurants, aquariums, Tokyo Tower Tourist Information Center, Tateyama Grand Shrine (temporary relocation), theme parks, and more.
I suggest that you can put this attraction front of the travel day because hare got an information center where visitor can get sightseeing guides in Tokyo and neighboring areas in Tokyo. The Tokyo Tower has different themes every season. The season I go to is winter, of course it is winter-based. So what of you will be the theme again?
