Piercing the skyline at 634 m (2,080 ft), Tokyo Skytree hosts a restaurant, a broadcasting tower, and an observation deck. Ride the elevator up, and then take in 360-degree views of Tokyo while climbing the five-story spiral staircase to the highest glass-walled panoramic viewing deck. A gift shop inside the tower sells sleek design items and souvenirs, and within the observation area you will find a cafe and a French-Japanese fusion restaurant.

  • The Tokyo Skytree is an unmissable icon and the north star of Tokyo's Skyline that should not be missed or skipped! The view over this mega-city is simply breathtaking and if you did not have to time....  more »
  • This is a well-organized observation tower. Information and guides are throughout. The view was extraordinary, even on a somewhat hazy, but not exactly cloudy day. I could imagine an even more...  more »
  • The view from Skytree is wonderful and allows one to contemplate the vast size of Tokyo, which seems to stretch infinitely. The observation level is large and allows enough room that everyone is...  more »
  • Really nice view from the top and even from the level below, everything looks awesome, especially at night, also it’s not only the view but the other activities and events they have at different times of the year. On summer the line to go up is really short and you can go up pretty quickly. The cafeteria has really nice and interesting products. You can stay at the top as long as you want, and at the bottom there are also thing to do. Really nice experience.
  • The view at night is amazing! Very convenient location, next to train station. We went up there around 8:50pm, tickets counter opens until 9pm, Skytree opens until 10pm. 350m and 450m are both worth the money to have a look. Professional photos can be taken by the staff over there, 1500 yen per photo.
  • Great family experience; with awesome shopping downstairs also. Lovely cafe when we found it eventually; no seating at one of the cafes (350m?). It was very busy not in the cafe so was nice to have somewhere to sit and enjoy the view - which is absolutely stunning. The combo is actually quite expensive; probably not worth it if the weather isn’t clear!
  • Both day and night time vies are so perfect. Best time to visit in day and wait until to see sunset and night view too. Very excited place for a better experience in highest point in japan. Charges are very reasonable. Enjoy your visit. 🇯🇵
  • Always a crowd favorite, Tokyo Skytree inspires both awe and excitement. It is MASSIVE, as becomes apparent before even stepping into the tower. Very touristy, but also a tried and true local activity (bring a date at night!). View is one of the most intense in Japan, second only to the top of Fuji-sama. I'd say absolutely go and see for yourself. And if you're lucky, you may have a themed experience as well! (The Attack on Skytree experience last year was awesome)
