It's an observation tower so you pretty much know what you're in for. Take a fast elevator to the top and enjoy fantastic views. Pay a bit more and go up to the even higher observatory. The facility is new, modern, and stylish. It is predictably filled with retail shops and places to eat. There is a glass floor you... More

One of Tokyo's must do sights to see, great views with total 360. Try and avoid weekends and public holidays as it is generally very busy with long wait time. You travel 350 mtrs in 50 seconds in the elevator, so smooth. There are also plenty of shops, restaurants & bars next door

Loved it! Offers great views of the city. Foreigners are entitled to buy a fast pass to get in shorter queues which I totally recommend, worth every penny to save your time. And if you can afford it, go all the way up to the 450m level. It's fantastic' Has some nice shops and restaurants around which you can enjoy... More

We visited in early July and was very busy. Don't be put off by the queues though as it is well worth the wait. The views across Tokyo are spectacular and you are not rushed to leave. Just take your time to soak in all of the views from the various points around the viewing platform.

The location seems a bit out of the way if you are visiting the local shrine Senso-ji in Asakusa, but it's worth the trek. There are plenty of shopping options, there's a Pokemon center in there as well. You can actually go to the top of the tower, the cost varies depending on where you bought your ticket, expect to...

Go see it! Stand on the glass floor 340 meters above ground... stand on the observation deck 350 or 450 meters above ground. Shows Tokyo as far as the eye can see. You dont see Tokyo like this... real world observation of Tokyo is from street level or subway level... you want to see Tokyo from above? This is the... More

I was not planning to go tho the sky tree because it seemed out of the way. Wow, it was worth a trip on its own; we did enjoy Asausa nearby also. The skytree has many unique shops that are different from the rest of Tokyo (for example, one shop was making handmade candy sculpture when we were there; there... More

I've been in several skyscrappers in Japan. This is a pretty beatiful one, but sorry to say, not the best. I'd have loved to go to the restaurant in the 345 F and then my experience would have been fullfilling. Anyway, is a must-see and you'll pay 1.800 Yen for something in Osaka costs 1.000. If here's a cloudy day... More

Tokyo Skytree is classified as the tallest tower (not building though) in the world, and it certainly does tower over the rest of the Tokyo skyline. Visible from Asakusa and Ueno the Skytree is now a recognised part of Tokyo. Top tips: DO book your tickets ahead, this will save you 1-2 hour of queuing up to get your ticket!... More

To name a few world-renowned towers/buildings, say, Taipei, Hong Kong, Macau, Guangzhou, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Toronto, New York, Seattle, together with Tokyo Skytree which I just visited earlier this month, each of them has its own distinctive aspect of attraction. I was extremely impressed by the peaceful and orderly atmosphere at the public queues of the box office entrance there,... More
