We had a full day in Tokyo (東京) and started off by heading to Tokyo Tower. There was a poster that promoted City Light Fantasia in the observatory deck in the evening so we decided to come back at night to see it.
Next we intended to go to Shibuya (渋谷) but overslept on the subway so we ended up at Futakotamagawa station (二子玉川) and RISE shopping centre so we browsed around there. There were many shopping buildings next to the residential towers. We decided to shop here instead and went to Shibuya after because I have not seen the famous Shibuya crossing yet.
After a quick ramen dinner in Shibuya, we went back to Tokyo Tower which was now lit up orange and white. It cost 900 yen to go up to the main observatory. Upon exiting the elevator we could hear dramatic music which fitted the fantasy themed projections on the upper window panels while the lower panels allowed a 360 degrees view of the city. City lights dotted the horizon as far as the eye could see. I enjoyed the projection show and was glad we came in the evening.
On floor one of the observatory deck was a cafe and fairy lights decked the ceiling. Two DJs were playing songs that you could request from a set list. We enjoyed some cake and tea while overlooking the cityscape. I didn’t expect it to be so but Tokyo Tower was a good place to enjoy a nice evening.
