You can’t speak Tokyo’s symbol without “Tokyo Tower”.
Of course, also watching the tower from far away is splendid, but the best angle of it is to look up from the bottom.
When the sky is clear blue, the cinnabar red of the tower glows very beautifully.
And also, in the night, the tower lights up on various themes every seasons and event. If you want to see the Tokyo Tower different than usual, it may be good to aim that day.
Usually we go up in an elevator to a large observatory, but we can also use outdoor stairs to go up in Saturday, Sunday, and National holidays.
There is about 600 stairs! When you used the stair course, you can get the “Up stairs certification”. So it will be a good memory.
When you overlook the bottom in the observatory, there is a place where the lights of a car running on the road looks like the “Tokyo Tower”.
Please try to find it!
