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.

  • Similar experience to Empire State Building in NYC. The elevators are much better organized. It is worth a visit if you wish to see how big a metropolitan Tokyo truly is.  more »

  • Great place for tourist to visit and get a magnificent view of Tokyo. I personally recommend to go at night and watch the tower get light up. The shopping center is also great to buy tons of souvenirs and the restaurants there are very good to grab a bite and a drink. There's a patio high up that has food trucks set up and bars where you can see the tower right in front making a great place to sit and watch the sunset.
  • Tokyo landmark with excellent view of the city! Location is very easy accessible by train and was to find. We bought advanced tickets online so we can skip line. We didn't have much time in tokyo, so it was totally worth it. The staff were courteous and friendly. Riding the elevator up to 350m was so quick and you could hardly feel it moving. The view was amazing! There were lots of Christmas decorations for guests to take photos off and with. At 450m there's less crowd because one has to pay extra. There's glass bottom floor at this level, and standing on it and looking down is quite an experience! Overall, an excellent place to visit and should not be missed.
  • The second tallest man-made structure thus far. Has two observation decks. Pay at the ground to go to the lower deck. At the lower deck pay to get to the higher deck. It's very crowded on weekends and holidays. Go on a weekday. Best time is during the winter - clear visibility (because there is no humidity). Truly wonderful!
  • By far, the highest I have stood looking down upon a city, at 450m (1485 ft or 148 stories) and it was breathtaking. The price for an adult ticket to the 350m point was about $20. Almost another $20 to go to the 450m point. The elevators are enclosed in the center of the tower. You cannot see out and I think that's a good thing because they move at an unbelievable speed. Don't worry, you won't even feel it moving. there are options to eat and buy snacks or refreshments at the high points. Go on a clear day and/or night, to see all of Tokyo. I visited in the day and was amazed. I only wish I could've stayed to see Tokyo lit up at night. Next time!
  • The view from the Skytree was beautiful. A separate entrance fee is required for access to a much taller platform. The glass floor was scary for me, however my kids love it! If you time properly, you will be able to see the day and night scene.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
