Tokyo Tower’s Main Deck Gets a Makeover

Economy Guide to Japan Japan in Video

Work was recently completed on renovation of the main observation deck of Tokyo Tower, one of the capital’s iconic structures. The windows have been enlarged to improve the sweeping views in every direction. And glass material has been used on the interior walls, which now reflect the Tokyo cityscape. Pictograms have been used extensively to show locations and directions, so that visitors can easily find their way around regardless of what languages they use.

The new main deck was opened to the public on September 26.
