  • Before the currently popular and beautiful Sky Tree, there was another tall and magnificent legend that symbolized Tokyo to a T. Tokyo Tower, built in 1958 and located in Minato, Tokyo, Japan, is the second tallest structure in Japan at 332.9 meters (1,092 feet). This tower is not just a typical tourist spot, but also an original date spot for couples, even romantic enough to inspire a Japanese movie “Tokyo Tower.” Also, it might be a little-known fact that the tower also broadcasts digital signals for Japanese media outlets such as NHK and TBS.
