TOKYO TOWER

東京タワー[TŌKYŌ-TAWĀ]

A communications and observation tower officially called “Nippon Denpatō (Japan radio tower)” that is an endearing symbol of Tokyo. With a height of 333 meters, it was the tallest structure in Japan for nearly half a century until the completion of the Tokyo Sky Tree in 2010. It is uniquely painted in white and red. But if you get close to the tower, you will notice the red is actually orange. In fact, it is “international orange” complying with air safety regulations.
