La Tour de Tokyo 東京タワー
To get a good view of Tokyo, one the places I would recommend for you to visit is none other than Eiffel Tower’s Japanese twin, the Tokyo Tower. Whether is day or night, the tower is visible due to its massive structure and its famous bright orange and white colour.
There’s no denying it that I become a completely different person when I go anywhere high to the extent that I get scared even by looking down a two storey building. I’m a scaredy cat, yet going on planes doesn’t bother me at all, but that’s a different story.
The Tokyo tower is damn high, the elevators are glass and it shakes when you go up. There is also a little glass on the floor in the main observation deck that offers you to look directly down under the tower. I apologize if I am scaring you, but this is what I remember most from it.
Through the pains of being scared of heights, the views are phenomenal and damn worth the money/mental strength/guts. Its a must visit.
*There is also a little treat/reward after going down the tower where you can buy crepes. Its actually, very good. (its not free though D: )*
Below: A different elevator is used to go up from the main observatory to the ‘special’ observatory at the very top. My heart was throbbing harder than it already was waiting for the elevator to come.
