Tokyo Tower is located in Minato-uu, Tokyo, Japan and is the world's highest self-supporting iron tower. The structure of the tower is originally based on the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France and is 333 meters tall, making it just 6 meters taller than the Eiffel Tower.
Tokyo is a well known tourist spot and is also one of the most crowded city. Because the tower is located in the middle of the city, from the top floor, visitors can have a 360 degree view of the entire Kanto region that surrounds Tokyo as well as Mt. Tsubuka and Mt. Fuji.
Tokyo Tower was built as a symbol for it's beginning of an economic power in the year of 1958.I have visited the tower when I was seven years old with my family. We took the train from Narita,Japan, and reached our destination within an hour. There are many other beautiful places to visit near the tower. There is a lake there that almost looks like the garden sculpture lake at the Getty Center Museum. Hundreds of people walk on the streets near the tower and it feels very nice because of the green views we can actually breathe in the fresh air
