#6 of 3,864 in Things to do in Tokyo
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 skytree is one of the highest radio towers in the world. You can purchase tickets to go the mid level or top observation area. There is an option to purchase international tickets at a modest prem...  more »
  • Highest Tower in the world. There is something on it. If you're in Tokyo, then don't miss this great view. The entrance fee is 4000 Yen at all after above (450 m) (combo ticket). Take out some time for a cup of coffee from the top.

  • There is a shopping mall inside at the lower level of the skytree where you can buy souvenirs (mainly food). There is also an aquarium which I didnt visit.  more »

  • It’s a landmark, and an observation tower. It’s not cheap to visit. It is nice to have views over the city. Think about the weather conditions before you visit. I visited on a sunny day, but there was a bit of smog, so the views were not as good as they could have been. The lift ride was fun. The facilities are very clean and well maintained. There was lots of staff available to help. There is a large shopping mall at the base of the tower.
  • There can be lots of visitors, especially over weekends and holiday season; however, the crowd is wonderfully managed and the queue in front of the entrance moves quite fast. The view on top is superb (does not make too much difference for going to the highest observation deck), especially right before it gets dark in the early evening -- Mount Fuji can be clearly seen if the sky is clear, yet the city starts to get lit up like galaxy. A scenery once seen never forgotten.
  • Most amazing place and certainly not to be missed, watched the sun go down over the beautiful Japan with Mt Fuji in the distance. What more could you want to feel on top of the world. A short film projected around the building and a place to sit and have snack. We played cards on the top floor as we watched the evening shift into the night . Well worth every cent. A definite highlight to our trip 😀
  • Great shops and restaurants as well am amazing 360 view of the lively city. Been here during the day and night and both times the view was awesome. I recommend going just before sunset to get the best of both. A bit on the expensive side (close to 5000 yen per person) if you want to go to the highest level but for those who appreciate the view, I think it is worth it. there is also a glass floor where viewers can look down from.
  • Affordable landmark allowing you to see most of Tokyo. It's newer than Tokyo Tower and has frequent exhibits in the upper levels. When it's too crowded it can be hard to get some good views in but there's a lot of space so usually it's not a problem. Also the restaurant is cute and usually has themed food matching the exhibit, however it's quite small so the wait can be too long.
