Tokyo Tower

From Detective Conan Wiki
Tokyo Tower in Episode 304 of Detective Conan.

The Tokyo Tower (東京タワー Tōkyō Tawā?), is a real building used as a television tower, built in 1958 after the model of the Eiffel Tower. As one of the most famous landmarks of the city, it appears as a setting in the works of Gosho Aoyama a lot. It's also sometimes called Tōto Tower (東都タワー Tōto Tawā?) in these stories.[1]

Location[edit]

Tokyo Tower is less than 1.34 km (0.83 mi) away from the Mouri Detective Agency.

In real life it is located in the Shiba Park of Minato Ward in Tokyo. In the Manga and Anime of Detective Conan, it's firmly established to be close to or even part of the fictional ward/city of Beika. Conan Edogawa's and Kaitou Kid's first meeting on the roof of the Haido City Hotel is shown to be right next to the real Shiroyama Trust Tower, with Tokyo Tower right behind it, placing the hotel on the location of the ANA Intercontinental Tokyo Hotel in the Akasaka District of Minato.

Later on it's shown that the Mouri Detective Agency is canonically located somewhere inside a radius of less than 1.34 kilometres (~0.83 miles) around the Shorodo right next to the Tokyo Tower. This would, in real life, partly encompass the districts of Mita, the Shiba area, Kaigan, Atago, the Shinbashi area, Toranomon, Akasaka, Roppongi and the area of Azabu.

    Like… You draw that street, you draw another street… And those two are connected?-feeling?
    They don’t. Tohto tower is Tokyo tower. It’s like a mix of fiction and reality.
