Tokyo Tower Aquarium

There is a small, small aquarium in the Tokyo Tower, actually.

You may not find it because in the first place you will never thought about going aquarium while you are at Tokyo Tower.

However, I don’ t know why but there is also an aquarium at SKY TREE….

Anyways, this samll aquarium could be the hiding place from the commotion. And there are not so many people even on weekends. Good place to take your kids or kill time!

Tokyo Tower

One of Tokyo’s biggest sightseeing spots.

In up town area (Kamiya-cho station, close to Roppongi*

Tokyo Tower (10.16.2016)

), about 15min from Akihabara station by Hibiya line (Tokyo Metro).

Now it has been taken place its role by new “Sky tree” in Asakusa area, there are still many fans.  I personally think Tokyo Tower is more romantic and peacefull thatn new ones.

Good points : Not sooo many people, conpact but beautiful, location is nice (up town Tokyo)

If you have 30min, it’s enough!! Still it’s worth to visit!
