The Tokyo Tower can be seen from various places in Shiba Park, but Shiba Park 4th Block, located on the north side of the park near Onarimon Station, is particularly famous as a representative spot.
The view of the straight sidewalk and Tokyo Tower seen at the end of the sidewalk is very impressive.
