One Piece Tower

We headed over to Tokyo Tower our second night in the city. I hadn’t visited this iconic landmark in my previous trips before. The closest I got was at Mori Art Tower where I captured some moving cityscapes while a friend explained why the toilet bowls in Japan were separated from the shower. Good times, that.

This time, Shasha and I had to pay the tower a visit because there was a limited period where the One Piece Tower was exhibiting! Warning: this post is 56 photos long.

Tickets to Tokyo Tower.Our tickets to the One Piece Tower! This ticket set includes a trip to the 150m observatory for a total of ¥3,900 (SGD $50). Nubbad.

The Mugiwara (Straw Hat) Store resides on the lobby of the tower. We had a field day in there – so many awesome merchandise! Moving residences back home has leaned myself against souvenirs and decorative possessions, but even my inclinations couldn’t save me from purchasing some of the incredibly kawaii biscuit tins in there.

We didn’t have time to visit the Mugiwara Cafe, but it sure looked enticing with the decor:

Done with the sights at the lobby, Shasha and I left Ruru behind to admire the art galleries and cafes in the tower and headed up to the 150 metre observatory:

Silhouette of Shasha at the Tokyo Tower Observatory.The animated, frosty projections at the observatory was beautiful. Here’s a silhouette of Shasha peering out at the cityscape.

Busy roads in the night cityscape from the Tokyo Tower Observatory.Don’t the roads look like Tokyo Tower?

View of the top at the observatory at One Piece Tower, Tokyo Tower Japan.This here is a very scratched-up Lookdown Window. No really, that’s what it literally is called. Pity about the scratches.

And then we headed to the One Piece Tower exhibit:

Interactive Pages of the One Piece manga pages at One Piece Tower, Tokyo Tower Japan.The first portion of the exhibit wowed us with blown-up manga pages and interactive visual and sound effects when you stepped closer.

Shasha and Ren at the feasting at One Piece Tower, Tokyo Tower Japan.One of the costumed staff was pretty adamant that she take a photo of Shasha and I enjoying ourselves at the feast with the Straw Hat Crew. We were glad to oblige.

We also found out that there was a stamp collecting activity at this exhibit! We didn’t buy the passport stamp booklet advertised in here, instead went around stamping the brochure that came with our entrance:

There were quite a number of immersive rooms in this exhibit. I’m a wuss when it comes to dark places, but luckily Shasha was kind enough for me to cling to her arm in barely-contained panic in many of these situations. We even went into the Haunted House!

Never again.

I guess I’ll suck as a pirate.

We also caught the One Piece Live Attraction! I think we managed to catch the last showing of the day? It was freaking awesome. We were ushered straight to the front row and sat on the cushions laid out on the floor. The entire show was in Japanese, but it was pretty easy to get a rough grasp on what was going on:
