The Tokyo Skytree is an interesting site and the journey there is easy from anyplace in Japan. It is the tallest tower in Japan, and there it has two observation areas (what the Japanese call the Tembo Deck and the Tembo Galleria. This is a for-fee attraction. You begin your journey by purchasing a ticket for the Tembo Deck, which gets you to the 350th floor; the cost is 2,000 yen for an adult (18 and over), 1,500 yen (students - 12 to 17), 900 yen (students - 6 to 11), and 600 yen (children (4 to 5 years old). To get to the Tembo Galleria, there is another charge of 1,000 yen; 800 yen; 500 yen; and 300 yen respectively. I did not take this second adventure due to the weather and not being able to see because of the cloud cover. The guide, which is published in English and several other languages, explains there is an elevator ride to the from the 350th to the 445th floor; you then have a "sloped 110-meter air walk from floor 445 up to floor 450". The guide makes it sound very nice, and I plan to revisit when the clouds would not interfere with the anticipated view.
There are several shops and eating opportunities within the tower; additionally, there are a number of eating place adjacent to the tower - this includes a Coldstone Ice Cream shop where the singing is always going because there is no tipping in Japan (in the U.S., the singing happens in response to a tip).
