What people are saying about Kantō Region

This is a must do in Tokyo!! I was super scared about taking the elevator for so many floors but the experience is actually very seamless and fun! The staff is SUPER friendly and they greet you with a big smile when you get to the top, take a picture and direct you to the amazing views of the entire city! If you can, go to the second floor, the views are breathtaking! Pro tip - if you want to see Mt. Fuji, arrive early and chose a sunny day :)

The views from the top are amazing! You can see clearly to Mt Fuji and get a view of just how populated Tokyo is. Incredible

It is worth it. Tokyo is seen from all angles. The elevator is very fast and the Tower staff is very friendly.

Very nice view, a must visit place in Tokyo! Definitely worth the extra cash to go up to the top level.

Really fun experience overall, got to see Tokyo from another view!
