Gaze across the Tokyo skyline from the tower’s two observation decks. A standard entrance ticket offers access to the Skytree Tembo Deck at 1,148 feet (350 meters), while an upgrade also gives access to the Tembo Galleria at 1,476 feet (450 meters).
Pre-booking is the best way to avoid long lines, and a popular choice is to combine it with a sightseeing tour of Tokyo, taking in other top attractions such as the Imperial Palace, Sensō-ji temple, the National Diet Building, and the Ginza entertainment district. For views of the tower itself, set sail on a cruise around Tokyo Bay or soar overhead on a thrilling helicopter flight.
Things to Know Before You Go
All visitors must pass through security and bag checks to enter the tower.
On-site facilities include paid parking, restrooms, a café, restaurant, and gift shops.
The Tokyo Skytree is accessible to wheelchairs and strollers.
How to Get There
The Tokyo Skytree is located in the Sumida District of Tokyo, and the entrance is on the 4th floor of the Tokyo Skytree Town entertainment complex. Catch a train or a bus from Tokyo Station to Tokyo Skytree Station or Oshiage (Skytree), or walk across the Sumida River from Asakusa.
When to Get There
The Tokyo Skytree is open daily all year round, but it can get busy, especially during the summer season (June–August). Opt for an early morning visit to avoid the main crowds, or visit in the evening for a dazzling night view of Tokyo’s illuminated skyline.
Tokyo Skytree Town
The Tokyo Skytree is part of a gigantic, multistory entertainment complex—Tokyo Skytree Town—and it’s worth leaving yourself extra time to explore. Highlights include the enormous Solamachi shopping mall with over 300 shops, a large food court with everything from fast food to fine dining, the Sumida Aquarium, a planetarium, and the quirky Postal Museum Japan.
