A must do in Tokyo. Din't be out off by the long queue.

This huge tower is easy to get to on the Tokyo metro, the station Oshiage, which is at the opposite end of the purple line to Shibuya. When we arrived on a Staurday afternoon... read more

The place is insane - the day I was there the sign told me that I have to wait 80 minutes in the queue to get my ticket, and after that there's a queue for the elevator too. I'm sure the view up there is spectacular, but spending almost 2 hours in the queue would be crazy for travellers with... More

We visited the skytree at midday yesterday (with no reservation) and the line was 80min + but we were recommended to enter through the west tower for "international" line of which the line was only 15min!! Awesome! The staff at the tower are so friendly and helpful! The elevators have a theme and are so beautiful! Once you are finally... More

Arriving early seems to be the key to this tower. On a Thursday at 9:00 there was no queue to buy tickets, get up the tower or get down again. Once up, if the weather is good, then the view from the Skytree really puts the size of Tokyo into perspective. It was useful to orient yourself with parts of... More

I went in the evening at 8pm, I reserved my tickets in advance so I was able to skip the line. The elevators are frequent to match the busy crowds. Once at the top the 360 views are just incredible, I liked the photo panels with the descriptions of buildings to look for. After taking many photos and videos it's... More

we visited the skytree in Cherry Blossoms season so we knew it would be busy, but there was an hour line just to get a ticket for a timed entry which wasn't for another 4 hours so we decided not to go up! the ticket was expensive also. The shops in the sky tree area though are awesome - we... More

This huge tower is easy to get to on the Tokyo metro, the station Oshiage, which is at the opposite end of the purple line to Shibuya. When we arrived on a Staurday afternoon, the whole area as heaving and we were nearly put off by the huges queues. The tower is 634 metres tall and is the second tallest... More

The fast track ticket available to foriegn tourists got us up there in less than 20 mins and it would haven been quicker, except high winds meant one in two lifts had to go up empty. Truly stunning views of the city, but if you don't like views, there's not much else up there. Sadly the high winds then closed... More

Wow - 350 meters into the sky, be you can even go higher (at an extra fee). Lotsof people here, buy the queues move along quicklime. On a clear day you are supposed to be able to see Mt Fuji, no such luck for us, but still worth the effort. We cruised up the Sumida River and then got the... More

I love to visit the towers in the cities I visit and the Tokyo Skytree didn't disappoint. Jetlag had me up at 5:30 in the morning, so I took a cab and arrived at the ticket office 15 minutes before it opened. There were 7 people in line by then and a hundred or more by the time they opened.... More
