We went to check out the skytree, it is very large. Did not go in it or up it. Next time! The outside area has many places to hang out and grab a bite to eat.

It's really pretty cool and if it had been a clearer day, alot better view. If you're afraid of heights I would not recommend it because it's definitely got some sway.

We went today -Monday but unfortunately today is a public holiday in Japan, thus, the line was over 45 minutes long. Once you get to the area, you had to go towards the tower to get a piece of paper with a time to come back to buy your ticket (and go up the tower right after). We got there... More

No, not when we were on top of it. We were not not allowed for sometime as because of the wind they stopped the tour which takes you to the top to have a 360 degree view of tokyo. We waited and we finally managed to get up to the viewing deck. It pretty much gives you an idea of... More

The views are AMAZING. Unfortunately, we couldn't see Fuji as it was a bit cloudy but it was still well worth the visit. Make sure you go early! We got there around 9:30 and had NO wait. When we left around an hour later the que was around 2 hours! Go in the morning and take the 30 minute walk... More

My partner and I enjoyed our visit here, though there certainly wasn't any chance of us spotting Mount Fuji in the distance on the day we visited, and I suspect the chance is pretty slim most days of the year! You pay at ground level for the first section, and ascend in a lift, where you then can see a... More

I was not well and didn't want to spend 2000Y on a visit to the observatory so instead stayed at street level and viewed it from outside. Interesting design and some pretty good pictures can be taken. There is a huge shopping mall underneath with lots of dining options. To go up there is often a wait of 30 plus... More

A group of friends and I went to see the Tokyo Skytree. We were just blown away by the view (and the glass floor)!

We went on a Wednesday in July and had less that a 20 minute wait. View was spectacular. Art work,was spectacular. Stopped at 350 meters and walked around. A little smoggy on a hot humid day. Definitely worth the trip since it is the tallest needle in the world at 600 meters tall.

My review to this attraction is not the best, unfortunately... View from this tower is nice only in the night time, after sunset. Day time is a real smoke even when the weather is perfect. The round 360 degrees floor is very small, once you step start going around, you're again at you first spot... Not nice. Yes, Tokyo is... More
