Tokyo Skytree – Tokyo | Travel Information

Tokyo Skytree is among one of the most notable tourist attractions in Tokyo. The landmark has a total height of 634m, making it the tallest structure in Japan, and the tallest tower in the world at the time of completion. There are currently 2 towers in construction that once completed will take over this #1 position, but for the time being, the Tokyo Skytree still holds the record. The Tokyo Skytree serves as a broadcasting tower, observation deck, and a restaurant. The Tokyo Skytree is among one of the greatest viewing platforms in Tokyo, providing 360° views as far as the eye can see.

The Tokyo Skytree has two observation decks,  the first observation area stands at 350m tall. This deck is known as the Tembo Deck, and it serves as the main landing area for people visiting the skytree. There are four floors to this section, which vary from shops, to observation area. On the fourth bottom floor, there are glass floors which look down upon the city, and those who dare to walk across will surely feel a bit of an adrenaline rush. Tickets for the top deck can only be purchased on the Tembo Deck.

The top deck, known as the Tembo Gallery,  of the Skytree can be accessed by purchasing an additional ticket from the Tembo Deck, stands at 450m high, and provides the most advantageous view of the greater Tokyo region. Locals and tourists flock to this amazing location on a clear day, as the view is one of a kind, with  Mount Fuji occasionally peering across the skyline. It is highly recommended that you visit on a clear day as on a cloudy/ rainy day you might not be able to see anything as all from any of the observation areas.
