Visit Report of Tokyo Tower Main Deck & Top Deck

Built in 1958, it was Japan's first real night view observatory.

A reopening was made in 2018 and the name was changed from the Main Observatory to 'Main Deck'.

The city is crowded not only with Japanese but also with many foreign visitors to Japan.

When you get to the viewing platform, be sure to check out the view to the south-west.

This landscape became a hot topic on social networking sites as 'another Tokyo Tower' because of the tower-like shape of Metropolitan Road 301 joining National Highway 1.

Of course, the scenery in other directions is also very attractive.

It is a must-visit night view spot in winter, when the air is clearer.

Incidentally, apart from the main deck, Tokyo Tower also has a top deck from which you can look down on the Tokyo cityscape from a height of 250 metres.

This is also a good place to go if you want to enjoy the night view in peace and quiet, or if you want to enjoy the view from an overwhelming height.
