The event marks its 11th anniversary this year, and it’s been upgraded to a more exciting setting, where you can feel the changing colors while climbing up the outdoor stairs to the "Milky Way” created on the main observation deck. With the orange Tokyo Tower in the background, the outdoor stairs with the myriad of blue stars is certainly the most romantic dating spot this summer.

You can enjoy a spectacular night view of downtown in Tokyo underneath the deck. Every evening at dusk, the Milky Way illumination reflected on the windows produces a fantastic scenery, along with the amazing night view of Tokyo.
