The Tokyo Tower
Just as the Eiffel Tower is an iconic part of the Parisian landscape, the Tokyo Tower is an indispensable asset to the city.
Here are some views including the Tokyo Tower.

-Tokyo Tower

Opened in 1958 as a 333m high radio antenna, it remains a popular tourist attraction and site, with an observatory as well as leisure facilities and various shops.

When I was a child, there was a wax museum, and now an entertainment complex has opened. Tokyo Tower has indeed changed over time.

-Tokyo Shiba Tofuya Ukai 

This is a renowned kaiseki restaurant at the foot of Tokyo Tower. The large grounds with a Japanese garden offer a special dining experience in a luxurious restaurant with traditional private rooms and a lacquered wooden corridor.

My engagement took place in this restaurant. I thought it would be an ideal setting for the two families to meet. In, I had taken a photo with Tokyo Tower in the background. Even though it ends up being part of the background, it still has a special presence.

-Shiba Park

This park is one of the oldest in Japan. You can walk through kofun, funerary monuments dating from around the fifth century, artificial ravines and more recent sports facilities. The Tokyo Tower can be seen in all four seasons, through the leaves coloured by the climate of the moment. A shade of orange in autumn and, of course, the cherry trees in bloom in spring.

-Rainbow Bridge 

Rainbow Bridge is the star of Odaiba's nightscape, and the view of Tokyo Tower is outstanding. It is possible to walk across it, so if you want to take your time and enjoy the view, it makes an ideal walk.

-Roppongi Hills 

The Roppongi Hills Illumination, which takes place every year from early November to Christmas, is a popular winter attraction.

Tokyo Tower is even more spectacular when seen between the illuminations.
