A very expensive view of Tokyo. I was disappointed with the lack of explanatory descriptions of what I was looking at, save for one excellent interactive map provided in English and Japanese. This map was surrounded by many people and is only in one spot. I also did not enjoy the huge number of kids running around the place. Very... More

Best way to understand the scale of the huge expanse that is Tokyo is to get to higher ground and you can't get higher than Skytree. We didn't bother getting advance tickets, just turned up on the day (around 11am midweek) and didn't have to wait for too long. We fitted it in on the same day we took a... More

It is like any sky tower, you have the view of the whole city if the fog allows you. Just too expensive for a view (even being expensive is always crowded - a true money machine). I wouldn't say a must see - just interesting to verify that the city was mostly planned.

Do not let the price stop you. Yes you can see the view feom Metropolitan Building but the view here is just simply unbeatable. Come here early in the morning to beat the queue (there WILL be a LOOOOOONNGGG queue if later) and enjoy the picturesque wonder that unfold before you. Did not go up the special deck cause its...

The views from the tower are spectacular. 360 degrees of amazing skyline and you can see in the horizon the Mt. Fuji. A lot of people visiting the tower so the line may be a little long but it doesn't take too much time to reach the elevator and go up. There is a fast track for tourists in the... More

It is definitely a must visit if you happened to drop by Sensoji Temple and Nakamise Street. It is still within walking distance across Sumida Park and the River from the temple. The queue to go up to its observatory can be very long though. But I enjoyed my time more by walking around this tower and also Tokyo Solamachi... More

Long Lines. Go early- 2 levels to ascend to with price increase to higher level. Lines controlled & move like Orlando Disney. Worth the price. Check if there is a school or national holiday. The building complex can keep you occupied for many hours with other activities as well. Can book on line (in Japanese) if you have a local... More

Very easy to visit and with great views. But if a con that you have to pay again for last 100m summit but not so much. It was quiet when we went yet still busy.

We took probably 2-3 hours to get in, whereas Tokyo Tower had no lines at all. Mind you, the line to the ticket counter is just the beginning... there's another line to enter the elevator area, then another one to enter the elevator. Do you like to snap panoramas? Forget them here. The windows have vertical bars every half a... More

Absolutely breathtaking views at both night and day! At day you can really see how big the city really is and how small you are in comparison. At night the view transforms into something really quite different! The view transforms into a sort of light show as the cities lights twinkle at night. Worth every penny!
