  • If you are a tourist, you can buy "fast" ticket and with it you can bypass manymany people, so I would recommend it. The ticket sale is in the fourth floor. Fast ticket to both (350m and 450m) costs 4...  more »
  • There is an absolutely stunning views of tokyo from the "top" of the Tower (450 meters), it is a little wild feeling to see the city continue out into the horizon in all directions. There are different prices for 350 and 450 meters entre but can only recommend you pay the extra if you still want up and enjoy the views, came in the afternoon so that you can reach to experience views of tokyo both in light and darkness.

  • During the 11-week evening visited the sunset. Elevator was no wait time, and purchase tickets without standing in line at the ticket booth at all. Both visited the observation deck and observation gallery. Panoramic Tokyo gas was in the unfortunate weather, but is worth a look. Had a nice reception staff, feeling bright and fun to explore.

  • 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.
