Tokyo Tower is the old television communication
tower, which has now been converted to the Tokyo One
Piece Tower. It was modeled after the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
Tokyo Tower is situated in the center of Tokyo city. It was the tallest self-supported steel tower in the world until the Tokyo SkyTree was completed in 2012. The tower was modeled after the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Not only is it a popular tourist spot, but was the main television broadcasting antenna until its duties were passed on. The main observatory is located at 150 meters of the tower and can be reached by elevator or 600 step staircase. Inside the tower there are some lookdown windows where you can stand and see what is below. The special observatory is at 250 meters high and if visibility is good you can see Mount Fuji in the distance.
At the base of the tower is a four story complex known as Foot Town. It houses a variety of souvenir shops, restaurants, museum and many more. In 2015, an indoor amusement park was added to Foot Town. The amusement park is centered on the popular anime and manga series One Piece. It was opened on the 15th anniversary of the manga and was named One Piece Tower. There are a variety of shows, games, photo spots with the characters and food places. For anyone who is a fan of the series it is well worth the visit.
