  • Breathtaking view,a must see if in Tokyo. The lifts showcase the 4 seasons of Japan. Such is the detailing of this place. Pay a visit .You will definitely love it. 
  • We'd already spent a few days sightseeing around Tokyo before we went to Skytree. This made it all the more interesting when we went up the tower as we were able to pick out all the areas we'd been to...  more »

  • Fantastic view. Recommend to go up during the day close to sunset then find a west view and watch the sun set. The revel of Mt. Fuji as the sun sets is amazing! The system setup for foreigners (bring your passport) is amazing and very efficient. Very well run, I was surprised and how quick the lines were running.
  • The view here is fantastic, I recommend going during the day when it's clear because although the night view is mesmerizing it's not really very different from any other lit up city at night. During the day you can even see Mt. Fuji from the top, not to mention take some great pictures of Tokyo's unique landscape. The amount small buildings crammed together is truly astounding.
  • Went to visit this place with my boyfriend on a weekday (Thursday) night at 8:05PM. There weren't a lot of people so you can basically have the whole window by yourself! Haha! The night view of the city is spectacular! On the Tokyo Skytree Tembo Deck Floor 350 is a small cafe called Skytree Cafe. If you buy any refreshments or food there then you'll be able allowed in the area where there are sofas and free standing bar counter by the windows. You can basically relax and rest your feet here while enjoying the view of the city lights. We were the only ones at that spot so it was very relaxing.
  • Amazing breathtaking views! 100% recommended. Sometimes the queue gets a little bit long but goes pretty fast. We went there for sunset but we arrived to late. They have shows during these days mainly for children on the first stop at 340-350m. But i also enjoyed it. I think they repeat the show every 30min. One of the best views of the city. I saw it at night and was breathtaking!
  • Skytree is a great place to visit by itself though the area around it is perhaps not as interesting as Tokyo Tower. It is also a lot spendier than Tokyo Tower. That said, it is worth it. Great windows and views. As well the supporting Skytree town has everything you need and the hotel next door (Richmond) is also excellent. Skytree is great by itself, but add in everything around it and you have a great home base for a Tokyo trip.
