We saw the tiny little tip of Tokyo Tower got bigger and broader as we got closer. (dah!) We saw a large wooden gate with giant metal doors, and walked upward on the path next to it. There were a lot of trees and little shrines along the way. Very peaceful.
And then I saw this:
Tokyo Tower was so graceful and pretty at night. I just couldn't get my eyes off it.
I couldn't quite capture the beauty of the tower, but I still tried to take pictures of it with different camera settings. I also took a lot of "mental pictures!"

You can go up the tower to the Observatory and see the Tokyo night view, but we didn't go. It was super romantic at the bottom of the tower already!

Note to myself and all who's visiting Tokyo Tower: bring a good camera!
