Tokyo Tower (東京タワー Tōkyō tawā?) is a communications and observation tower located in Shiba Park, Minato, Tokyo, Japan as its shown in Tokyo tower map. At 332.5 metres (1,091 ft), Tokyo tower is the second tallest artificial structure in Japan. The structure of Tokyo tower is an Eiffel Tower-inspired lattice tower that is painted white and international orange to comply with air safety regulations.
Built in 1958, Tokyo tower main sources of revenue are tourism and antenna leasing. Over 150 million people have visited the tower since its opening. FootTown, a 4-storey building located directly under the tower, houses museums, restaurants and shops as its mentioned in Tokyo tower map. Departing from here, guests can visit two observation decks. The 2-storey Main Observatory of Tokyo tower is located at 150 metres (490 ft), while the smaller Special Observatory reaches a height of 250 metres (820 ft).
The Tokyo tower acts as a support structure for an antenna. Originally intended for television broadcasting, radio antennas were installed in 1961 and the tower is now used to broadcast signals for Japanese media outlets such as NHK, TBS and Fuji TV. Japan planned digital television transition by July 2011 is problematic, however. Tokyo Tower current height is not high enough to adequately support complete terrestrial digital broadcasting to the area as you can see in Tokyo tower map. A taller digital broadcasting tower, known as Tokyo Skytree, was completed in February, 2012.
