The Tokyo Tower, being the tallest freestanding tower in the world, is a major attraction to visitors from all over the country. It has two observation decks and people can go up to have a really beautiful look on the bustling capital of the most interesting country, Japan.

The orange color that was used for painting the tower was chosen as an air-safety measure. And at night, when the tower is lit up, the whole structure bathes in a beautiful orange light, making it stand out among the surrounding buildings.

Do take your camera with you, because the tower offers an amazing sight for pictures in either daylight or at night.

Address:
4-2-8 Shibakoen Minato-ku, Tokyo

Price:
¥820 for the Main Observatory and additional ¥600 to go higher to the Special Observatory.
