After waiting almost an hour in the long queue with screaming kids everywhere, we proceeded to a crowded lift to venture to the observation deck to endure more crowds. Whilst the view is pleasant enough, I much preferred the Tokyo Tower or return at a quieter time as popularity diminishes & out of the school holiday period.

You can see how Tokyo huge!!! Take a good photos of all city! in a bright day you can see more than just a Tokyo city. But take a time, in a peak season you can wait in a line for tickets about a hour, but it worth it!

It's a fantastic building with loads of great places to eat and lot's of things to do. This review is with regards to the observation deck: It's good, but.... It's expensive comparatively to other attractions in Tokyo - Y2500. It's slightly out of town, so the view is more an observation of the city, rather than from within it (like... More

This was my first time visit to Tokyo Sky Tree. I was very amazed at the time I entered the lobby, watching the animation on the wall. Buying the tickets was easy, despite the long queu. Going up to the observatory decak, there was a interactive display that showed us the 360 degree scenery. We can take pictures at the... More

I arrived at 12pm on a weekday in July. Big mistake. Had to wait over an hour to get to the lift. But it was worth the wait. The staff are helpful and the view is amazing. Definitely a must do for visitors to Tokyo. Not expensive either really.

This was on my top ten list of things to do during our stay in Tokyo. We went on a Saturday and were aware that the lines may be long. Not to worry, though. The line was long (we waited about 45 minutes), but extremely organized and quiet. The staff are uber-polite and very professional. We rode the elevator up... More

We always wanted to visit this new, tallest landmark since it opened in 2012. We also learned that it was so crowded that we might need to wait for hours to buy tickets. The main purpose for this new tower is to replace the Tokyo Tower for television and radio broadcast due to the high-rise buildings preventing the Tokyo Tower... More

If you like to see the Tokyo from the sky this is the best place to do it. Try to go there in the middle of the week, then it is not so busy. There is actually nothing to do, just see.

Went there in november on a clear sunny day, view from the Tembo deck (350m) was spectacular (Mt. Fuji was clearly visible), queue was short (couple minutes max, went there early in the morning) it is fun experience. Lots of people on the Tembo deck, but very manageable (you should be accustomed to lots of people when in Japan though... More
