#4 of 2,148 in Things to do in Tokyo
Piercing the skyline at 634 m (2,080 ft), Tokyo Skytree hosts a restaurant, a broadcasting tower, and an observation deck. Ride the elevator up, and then take in 360-degree views of Tokyo while climbing the five-story spiral staircase to the highest glass-walled panoramic viewing deck. A gift shop inside the tower sells sleek design items and souvenirs, and within the observation area you will find a cafe and a French-Japanese fusion restaurant.

  • Could not up top prospect fun together had helped. Next, somewhat in a hurry and turned so bad. You want to enjoy slowly next time.

  • This place is well managed and has excellent views of the area. We visited in autumn and picked a time close to sunset so it was extremely crowded. As it was a public holiday, it’s even more crowded t...  more »

  • Didn't go to the top, but there are plenty of attractions here to keep you busy. There's a floor with an aquarium and planetarium. I was most interested in the planetarium, and it does have two shows offered in English. There's also a couple floors with shops and food as well. The ice cream cream puffs particularly stood out. Additionally, just walking around there were lots of samples being handed out. This was a dangerous experience as I ended up purchasing many of these products - cheesecake, cheese crackers, jelly grapes... Moral of the story: this isn't just a tour of a tall building. There's much more to the Skytree.
  • We went in the evening around 8pm. There was no lineup and we were able to go up right away. Beautiful sight in the evening with Tokyo's lightscape in full display. The city stretches on for miles and miles and you can see some of the major landmarks in Tokyo. During daytime, when there are no clouds, you may see Mt.Fuji in the distance. A must see if visiting Tokyo.
  • This is one of the "must see" places in Tokyo, if you do have the opportunity to do so, stop by, and try to get to the highest level of the tower, it's worth it. The staff is extremely helpful, friendly, and willing to help you out even if you don't speak Japanese. The top of the tower is extra money for the view as there is even less to do there. GO DURING A WEEKDAY.
  • Really interesting piece of the Tokyo skyline. It is a reasonable price for a very impressive view. If you plan your visit for a nice clear day, you have a chance at being able to see Mt Fuji.
  • Really nice view of the city and the shops were really cool. It was very organized they gave us a number and time to come back so we would not have to wait in the line for hours. They even had a hello kitty shop! There are a lot of nice restaurants here as well. We ate at the Indian restaurant which was some of the best indian food I've ever had. And they gave my friends daughter a toy to play with while we were waiting for a table to free up.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
