At 332.9 metres, the Tokyo Tower is the second-tallest structure in Japan. The tower was built in 1958 and has been visited by over 150 million people to date. The tower’s main sources of revenue are tourism and antenna leasing. There are two observation platforms – one at 150 m and the other at 250 m.

The tower is a lattice tower similar to the Eiffel Tower and is painted white and international orange to comply with air safety regulations. The lighting that illuminates the tower at night changes by season and for important events. Directly under the tower there is a 4-storey building called Foot Town that houses a wax museum, an aquarium, souvenir shops, and restaurants.
