Tokyo Tower has been serving as the symbol of the city for many decades. Even though it may get less attention today after Tokyo Skytree opened, still it has been a beloved and popular landmark of the city. Tokyo Tower is enjoyable either seeing it from distance or gaze the city from its observation deck of the tower itself.
There are several great Tokyo Tower viewing spots in the city, but my recommended is Zojoji Temple, which is located right next to the tower. The temple is the head temple of the Jodo sect of Japanese Buddhism, and it’s strongly related to Tokugawa clan. The temple made an appearance in the film “The Wolverine”, and became well-known.
