tokyo's new landmark
This place has been super popular these days with many tourist coming to Tokyo. The tower is 634M high, for broadcasting, observation deck, restaurants and shopping space. If you are Japanese, probably still waiting to go. I am on other hand, being Japanese but still had an opportunity to go, the early adopter. Great restaurant at roof top(I heard) and also some nice play spots at first few floors. I personally like the view from the Tokyo Tower better probably because I have grown up seeing Tokyo tower and a bit being biased. But there are so many amusement areas here that I like and the kids can enjoy. Even if you don't go top, it's worth seeing from the ground and enjoy the floors you can go without tickets. The area is called "solamachi" which means "sky town" in Japanese. In the shopping area, there is store like Uniqlo, select shops for clothing or even a shop like Hello Kitty Store or Japanese souvenir stores. There is also a place we stopped called "kodomo no Yu", which literally means hot springs for kids. This place looks like a hot spring filled with plastic balls instead of hot water. There is a fee to get in but kids can really enjoy the place. There is a lot you can do here.
