Tokyo Tower 東京タワー

Tokyo Tower.

A red and white web of sky-high steel by day, a breathtaking beacon of lights by night, Tokyo Tower is the most prominent and distinctive feature of Tokyo's cityscape. Tokyo Tower is situated near the city's port in the elegant Minato (i.e. 'Harbor') ward of the city, and is located on the edge of Shiba Park, one of Japan's oldest parks.

Tokyo Tower was built in 1958 as a TV and FM radio broadcasting tower. It serves the whole of the Kanto region (i.e. Tokyo and surrounding prefectures) in that role and in 2003 began transmitting digital signals as well.

At 333 meters (1093 feet) it is 13 meters (43 feet) higher than the Eiffel Tower, but thanks to modern engineering technology it is 43% lighter in weight.

Tokyo Tower is a great spot from which to view the metropolis. Read more about Tokyo Tower here.
