Hi guys, another day in Tokyo. This time I'd tell you about my first experience to visit Tokyo Tower, if you are going to Tokyo this tower is one of must visit place. Starting my journey from my hotel which is very close to Takanawadai Station and I ask to the hotel staff where should I take if I want to visit Tokyo Tower. The staff gave me a map and she told me to take train from Takanawadai Station which located behind this hotel, to Akabaneshi Station. Fyi, the station is underground, guys!!
Arriving at Akabaneshi Station, I go upstair to go out from station and after that across the street I saw Tokyo Tower. Then, I walk to that tower. Tokyo Tower not only use for radio or TV transmitter but also for tourism place.
Tokyo Tower consist of 2 main observation floor and 1 special observation floor. For enjoying Tokyo city from above, I buy ticket in ground floor with fare 1600 Yen. That ticket valid to use until main oservation floor (1F and 2F) which located in 150 meters high. If you want to going up until special observation floor which 250 meters high, you have to buy ticket again in main oservation floor 2F about 1600 Yen.
After buy ticket, I take the stairs to main observatory floor. This floor is 150 meters high and I can see Tokyo City from above. Very beautiful..
After that I decided to go to Special Observatory floor. Actually there is no differences view from this floor, but indistinct I can saw Mount Fuji which very far away.. I tried to capture it using my camera phone. Can you see it?
Also, don't for to taking picture in Tokyo Tower glass floor. Are you brave enough? LOL
Well, satisfied taking picture in this floor I went downstair to souvenirs shops. You can find so many souvenirs typical of Tokyo Tower because there are so many souvenirs shops here. Unfortunately, almost all the shops have same price and I can't bargain it. LOL. But, all of souvenirs here are still worth to buy..
Feel enough with this visit, so I went out from the building to the next destination. If you wanna know, I'll update my other beautiful destinations in Japan later, guys!!

Buy ticket on main observatory floor and if you are going to Special Observatory Floor, you have to be more patient because it only has one lift which very crowded. In this tower, you are free to taking picture, so don't foget to bring good camera. This tower is open daily from 10 am to 10 pm and has different entrance fee for student.
