The basics

Head to the viewing gallery on the 450th floor of Tokyo Skytree for a look at the city that you’ll never forget. After opening to the public in 2012, it was recognized by the Guinness World Records Company as the world’s tallest tower. Solamachi (or ‘Skytown’) mall spreads out from the base of the tower and is home to over 300 shops and restaurants, plus an aquarium and a planetarium.

There’s also the quirky Postal Museum here with its collection of stamps from around the world. Solamachi makes a good place to stop and eat; there’s a wide range of options at the food court, plus higher-end restaurants too. Whether on a guided tour or a self-guided day of exploring, Skytree and Solamachi are worth a visit.
