This is one of the best-known towers in the world. At a height of 1,092 feet (333 meters), it used to be the world’s tallest self-supporting steel tower.Since its opening in 1958, it has become well known to visitors around the world, as the symbol of Tokyo as an international city. Various gauges and instruments mounted on top of the tower monitor the condition of the air above Tokyo and the traffic conditions in the streets below. This iconic red tower is illuminated at night, and the colors and styles change to complement the seasons, and for major events.
