It's a special subway station for the Sky Tree but you have to change subway lines. For foreign visitors, it's more convenient to take the Tobu Shuttle Bus for about 23 minutes ride. The bus stop is at Ueno railway station, near the National Museum of Western Art.
I visit it on Friday but it's still many visitors. I queue 45 minutes for ticket and wait 25 minutes for the elevator to the Tembo Deck. If you don't mind to give Yen 1000 more to the Tembo Galleria, it's less crowded. To me, the Sky Tree is another city tower, not so special (maybe the crowded visitors and long queuing minimize my interests).
