Landmark
“Bearing a significant resemblance to the Eiffel Tower in Paris, this bright orange tall radio tower was built in 1958 to symbolize the country's recovery after the destruction of World War Two. Rising up to 333 meters, Tokyo Tower used to be the tallest tower in Japan until the completion of Tokyo Skytree in 2012. You can choose to take the elevator or walk up 600 steps to the main deck, located 150 meters above the ground. If you are lucky, on sunny days you can even catch a glimpse of Mt. Fuji rising in the distance. If you are not afraid of heights, try standing on the glass floor sections and look directly down to the ground—almost 145 meters under your feet. ”

Park
“Shiba Park / 芝公園 Surrounding the Zojoji Temple in a ring shape, Shiba Park is the oldest parks n Japan. It gives you the perfect view of Tokyo Tower. Originally part of the Zojoji Temple, a family temple of the Tokugawa Lesyasu, Shiba Park separated after the war due to the separation of government and religion. The park has large trees of cherry blossom, zelkova, ginkgo, camphor, and others grown around the pond that gives beautiful sceneries in spring and autumn. Momijidani, autumn leaf valley, is famous for its artificial 10 meter high water fall.”

“Zojoji was founded in 1393 as an orthodox and fundamental nembutsu seminary for Jodo shu in the Kanto (east Japan) region. Zojoji was relocated to the present site in 1598 after Ieyasu Tokugawa, founder of the Tokugawa shogunate, entered Edo (present-day Tokyo) in 1590 to establish his provincial government. After the start of the Edo Period when the Tokugawa shogunate ruled Japan, Zojoji became the family temple of the Tokugawa family and an unparalleled grand cathedral was built. Zojoji also served as an administrative center to govern the religious studies and activities of Jodo shu. In those days, its precincts covered an area of 826,000 square meters which also contained 48 smaller attached temples and about 150 grammar schools. Moreover, as many as 3,000 priests and novices always resided here as students. Nevertheless, as the Tokugawa shogunate came to an end and the Meiji Era started, an anti-Buddhist movement got under way. The cathedral, temples and the mausoleum of the Tokugawa family were burned down by air raids during World War II. Thus, Zojoji was profoundly affected by political and social circumstances. Today, however, its cathedral and other structures have been rebuilt, and Zojoji continues to serve as the main temple of Jodo shu and the central nembutsu seminary for priests and novices. Furthermore, it has endeared itself to the general public as both a grand Buddhist temple typical of the metropolis Tokyo and a hub of religious and cultural activities.”
