Can’t Miss it! Visiting Tokyo SkyTree is a Tall, Touristy Good Time

It’s hard to miss the Tokyo Skytree (Tōkyō Sukaitsurī), a 634-meter-tall observation tower that lifts out of the city’s Sumida district Minato cityscape like a formidable rocket ship.

The country’s tallest structure (and the world’s tallest freestanding tower), the Tokyo Skytree opened in 2012 and quickly became one of the city’s most visited tourist attractions.  It gushes incredible panoramic views from its restaurant and observation decks.

With a base created like a gargantuan tripod, the tower includes several cylindrical observation levels, including one at the 350-meter mark, and another at the 450-meter point, with a unique glass spiral walkway where visitors can ascent to an even higher viewpoint with — yikes — glass floors for those with strong stomachs.

Enjoy the panoramic view seen through the SKYTREE’s dynamic steel frameworks.

Feel the real breeze, light and sound of Tokyo that are different from seeing through the glass window.

Dedicated guides offer a tour of “SKYTREE TERRACE” located 155 meters above the ground.
