When you come to Tokyo, one of the most modernized metropolises, don’t you want to observe the whole landscape of Tokyo?

If so, let’s climb up Tokyo Tower!

…you might think that. But wait a minute. If you do so, Tokyo Tower, the symbol of Tokyo, cannot be included in the scenery you are going to observe.

“I want to see the landscape with Tokyo Tower….”

Illuminated Tokyo Tower at night is a very romantic setting. You cannot miss it.

Then, where is the best place to go.

Roppongi Hills’ Mori Tower!

It is 238 meters in height above the ground and has 54 floors. Though it is shorter than Tokyo Tower, which is 333 meters tall, there us nothing to worry about.
Mori Tower is part of the Roppongi Hills complex.
