A steel lattice communications and observation tower in Tokyo. Opened in 1958, it is painted white and international orange to comply with air safety regulations and has two circular observation decks, features which help distinguish it from its inspiration, the Eiffel Tower. It is also surrounded by high rise buildings, the presence of which hampered plans to use the Tower for digital broadcasting in the region, and resulted in the building of the taller Tokyo Skytree.
It is also the setting of the tokusatsu series Kamen Rider Kabuto.
