Don't fall into the trap of paying to go up the tower, if you want to see views of Tokyo - head to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government office instead as it's free. :) The tower is good to look at from afar but if you've been to say, the Eiffel Tower, then this tower may be a bit of a disappointment.

Beautiful setting near the Zojo-ji Temple. Lights up magnificently in the sky at night becoming a beacon to its location. Situated near Zojo-ji there is the opportunity to have the old and new Japan combine. Access to the toweris well organized and provides a great view over Tokyo. On a clear day Mt Fuji can be sighted. Many shops and eateries are located in the base of the tower providing the chance to buy souvenirs from the location.

Worth seeing Tokyo from both the main observatory 250m and special 350m. Went there on the evening and can highly recommend it. Great view over Tokyo. Even Rainbow bridge can be seen fairly close.
The tower is lit up until 22.00, waiting for the lights to go out was not worth it. Unless you just happen to go that time don't wait for it.
Also there are some souvenir shops and food court downstairs to take a quick peek at before leaving.

The view is excellent, go to the top! The last elevator is a bit scary but the view worth the detour. I really enjoy viewing how big is Tokyo and see high buildings around.

It's like the tower in Paris. Go all the way to the top - it cost a bit more but how many times will you be there? You can see all of Tokyo and sometimes you can even see Fuji~!! Tokyo Tower is a must-see spot when visiting Tokyo.
