It's a big tall tower. With a very long line.

OK, it's expensive and the line is long enough that you'll really wonder if it was worth it - but it kinda still is. Use the early ticket buying option online if you have some... read more

If you're on a tight budget I wouldn't outlay the money to go up the SkyTree. Nor expend the effort to get to the place. I'd recommend observation decks that are more centrally located. We only went up as we were in the area and had a few drinks so thought it would be a good idea. That being said... More

This building is the best if you like to see all of the city at once. Has two observation points that you can see. You will have a chance to step on a glass walkway where you can see the street beneath your feet.

Like everyone else has said, Skytree has a magnificent view of Tokyo. Best time to go is around sunset so you can see both Tokyo by day and Tokyo at night. Elevator ride is pretty quick and will pop your ears a bit.

Having been to the Willis Tower (Chicago), and the Empire State Building observation decks in the past, this was a very similar experience. The elevator ride was the coolest of the three with the glass panel ceiling and the beautiful changing colors of the stained glass mosaics. Overall a stop you want to make to see the city of Tokyo...

You can see the day and night of Tokyo. Elevator lifts you up by 400m/sek and it is so surprising. Watching Tokyo night is incredibly beautiful.

I was in Tokyo with a few hours to fill before my flight. The Tokyo Skytree was very easy to get to via the Metro so it was a simple choice. Choose a day with good weather otherwise the view might be disappointing. I had the advantage of going early in the day - there were no major lines or... More

I've been to Taipei 101, the Sears Tower, and other "tall" structures, and they have all sell themselves in similar ways - an awesome panoramic view up top, with lackluster souvenir shops/ shopping areas inside. Its a beautiful structure, but for the price (around $35 USD) I would say its a better deal to simply walk around the town and... More

From the upper deck you can see how huge Tokyo really is, it just keeps going beyond the horizon. I went there on a sunny day and I could even see Mt. Fuji. There were allready lots of people at 10am but there was still room to move around and the lines weren't too long. It's a bit pricey to... More
