Tokyo Tower (東京タワー, Tōkyō-tawā?) is a communications tower located in Shiba Park, Minato, Tokyo, Japan. The 332.6-meter-tall (1,091 ft) orange and white lattice tower is the tallest self-supporting steel structure in the world, the tallest artificial structure in Japan. Built in 1958, this Eiffel Tower-like structure supports an antenna that broadcasts television and radio signals for important Japanese media channels such as NHK, TBS and Fuji TV.
