Tokyo One Piece Tower is a theme-park located inside the Tokyo Tower. If you don’t know “ONE PIECE”, it’s not a bikini but is a VERY POPULAR MANGA created by Eiichiro Oda which then became an ANIME. It’s the most popular and number one Manga / Anime ever!
It is about a boy named Luffy, who created a pirate crew and explores the Grand Line in search of the world’s greatest treasure known as “ONE PIECE”. I started watching One Piece since 2010, and loved the story line and the characters. I actually binged watch 300 episode for 3 weeks while having classes. It was worth-it, and now with Luffy and his crew continue getting stronger, my love for One Piece grew strong too.
That’s why in my trip to Japan, Tokyo One Piece Tower was a must see. BTW, I themed my outfit too – Red shirt, blue pants and a gold scarf. >.<
How do to go there?
Tokyo One Piece Tower is located inside the TOKYO TOWER in Roppongi. Unlike Tokyo Sky Tree, Tokyo Tower has no station below or across it.
You may ride the following and walk towards the tower:
Toei Oedo Line Akabanebashi Station (5 min walk)
Tozai Metro Hibiya Line Kamiyacho Station (7 min)
Toei Mita Line Onarimon Station (6 min)
Toei Asakusa Line Daimon Station (10 min)
JR Yamanote Line Hamamatsucho Station (15 min)
How much is a Ticket?
The costs depend on what you are planning to do and when you will buy it. You can buy plainly a park pass, but also you can add JPY 1000 for a chance to see the Live Show (One Piece Characters in the stage!) or an additional fee to go see a view of Tokyo (at Tokyo Tower Main Observatory).
For advance/prepaid tickets, you may purchase at KLOOK. It is highly recommended to buy here for cheaper tickets and more convenience.
For day tickets, proceed directly to the third floor to purchase your tickets. The one inclusive of the Tokyo Tower Main Observatory is also sold in the third floor, not on the first.
The attraction opens at 10:00 am to 10:00 pm everyday, unless there’s an announcement for the change in their official website.
One the 3rd floor, you will be buying your park pass and will proceed to line at the entrance.
The first thing you will experience is a 360 Log Theater; where you will be introduced to the adventures of the crew. It’s a fun clip regardless if you don’t understand the Japanese Language proficiently. The graphics are as expected of a One Piece Movie and the audio makes it more thrilling.
After that, another door will be opened and it will bring you this:
YES! Everyone is there from Thousand Sunny to all of the crew members: Luffy, Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Sanji, Chopper, Franky, Robin and Brook! They’re having a festival and you can dine and take pictures with them!
On the other side is a small One Piece Shop – Tongari Store, don’t worry there’s a HUGE one on the first floor – the MUGIWARA Store.
One the next floor (the 4th) is 8 attractions; 7 character related games and a Cola Bar (for light snacks) and a Kid’s space.
No picture taking was allowed on the parts but you can be imaginative. Instructions on the games are obvious for some, but there are guides being asked to read – English, Korean, Mandarin and Japanese before playing the game.

Tokyo One Piece Tower
Fan, or not, you will absolutely enjoy this place. And probably (if you’re not a fan), you will be one after this and would want to get to know more about the crew and the stories of their adventure!
And for fans out there, like me, this is a MUST! You will love Tokyo One Piece Tower! You will not only experience One Piece thru reading manga or watching anime – you will do it in flesh! You will have pictures with the crew, slash (a Kuma) like a great swordsman, be the new Sogeking, find Ponegliffs, eat delicious food and buy One Piece Souvenirs (for yourself and your friends). It will be an all out / WORTH-IT experience! A dream come true! A memory you will probably replay for years and an experience you would want to try again!
Oh and Here’s Chopper.
He was too cute and I wanted a Selfie.
