This was my first trip to Tokyo Tower. Along with Kawano-san, Ienaka-san and Mustain-san I had a pleasure trip at night around the Tokyo Tower, but did not enter inside the Tower building. We took ticket to go up to the Main Observatory which has height of 150 meters. The ticket charge for an Adult entry is 820 Japanese Yen.
We could see many people offer prayers to the Great Shinto Shrine of the Tower. Located at the highest spot in all 23 wards of Tokyo, the Shinto shrine grant the faithful divine favors such as successful passing of academic examinations and traffic safety.
The look down window is an exciting portion of the Tokyo Tower. We could see some children enjoy standing over the glass and look down. Looking down to the streets form the tower, I felt dizziness and could not stay there long, but managed to capture some shots in my mobile.
There are game centers for children to enjoy, restaurants and food courts at the Foot Town. Guinness World Records Museum, Crystal Planet, Space Wax, Trick Art Gallery and Wax Museum are other major attractions inside the Tokyo Tower. We were little confused due to time shortage on which one to choose. Finally we decided to enter Wax Museum.
Wax Museum in Tokyo Tower was opened in 1970. The wax figures of prominent personalities of the world history are displayed in the museum. Wax figures exhibited were imported directly from the workshop in London, where they were made. Also added are the figures of great personalities who created major impact on the human history in 20th century and played an important role in the society.
We missed many things like Thrilling Economics House, Amusement Park, Aquarium Gallery, Tokyo Souvenir Shop Town etc, but to come back again to view Tokyo Tower ! Next time I will try to have a night view of Tokyo from the top of the Tokyo Tower.
