Tokyo Tower in Tokyo, Japan - Encircle Photos

47 Tokyo Tower in Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo Tower was built in 1958 to support radio and television antennas. Clearly patterned after the Eiffel Tower, the orange and white, steel lattice structure stands 1,092 feet, 43 feet taller than the Paris landmark. Although its broadcasting role diminished when Tokyo Skytree opened in 2012, the Tokyo Tower remains a popular tourist attraction. Three million people a year ride elevators to the Main Observatory (490 feet) or the Special Observatory (819 feet). At the base is FootTown housing shops, restaurants, an amusement park and the Guinness World Records Museum.
