The Tokyo Skytree (Tōkyō Sukaitsurī) became the tallest building in Japan when it opened in 2012 and is the second-tallest building in the world after the Burj Khalifa. Stretching 634 m (2,080 ft) into the sky, the tower contains two observation decks, one at 350 m (1,148 ft) up and the other at 450 m (1,476 ft), from which you can see all the way to Mount Fuji during good weather! Lines on the day can get long, so book skip-the-line tickets in advance for the best experience.

4 tips for visiting the Tokyo Skytree

Tokyo Skytree observation deck
Did you know that the Tokyo Skytree was named by the general public? A committee for naming the tower collected names, including Tokyo Edo Tower, Rising Tower, Tower of the Future, and Dream Lookout, but Tokyo Skytree was the winner with over 30% of the votes.

The tower is extremely popular with travelers from within Japan, so if you want a less crowded visit then you should probably avoid weekends and local public holidays. If you’re visiting from outside Japan then you can also use the Fast Ticket Line, though it’s still faster and cheaper to book tickets online.
The view of the sunset from the observation decks (either of them) is fantastic. In order to be at the top in time to see it, consider arriving 90 minutes before the sun is scheduled to set in order to have enough time to wait in line, take the elevator, and find a good spot.
Make sure to find one of the areas with a glass floor - there are some on each observation deck. You’ll be able to take a really cool photo of your feet hovering high above the ground below, if you dare!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Tokyo Skytree?

The Tokyo Skytree is a broadcasting tower in Sumida which broadcasts 9 television channels and 5 radio stations. It was also designed to house two observation decks for visitors to enjoy! It’s been the tallest structure in Japan since 2010, and reached its full height of 634 m (2,080 ft) in March 2011. At 634 m (2,080 ft), is the third tallest building in the world following the Burj Khalifa in Dubai and the Merdeka 118 in Malaysia. The observation decks are called the Tembo Deck, 350 m (1,148 ft) high, and the Tembo Galleria, which is 450 m (1,476 ft) high. Both offer incredible views of the city, and on a clear day, you can even see as far as Mount Fuji. Read more.

What’s the difference between the Tembo Deck and the Tembo Galleria?

The Tembo Deck is 100 m (328 ft) lower than the Tembo Galleria and is also much busier since the tickets are cheaper. The deck has 3 floors: the top floor has large windows and offers the best views of the city, the middle floor has a souvenir shop and a restaurant that serves French-Japanese cuisine, and the lower floor has a café where you can enjoy the view with a cup of coffee and a snack. Read more.

Is the Tembo Galleria worth the extra cost?

It depends. It’s fun to be able to say you’ve been as high up as it’s possible to go in Tokyo, and you might get to see more of the Kanto region from the higher deck, especially on a clear day. Plus, as it’s a more expensive ticket, the Galleria tends to be less crowded, so you’ll have more space to take photos. However, if you’re interested in the view of Tokyo, you won’t find yourself able to see anything extra from higher up. There aren’t any extremely tall buildings close to the Skytree, so the view from the Tembo Deck isn’t obstructed in any way. Having said that, if you book online you can find some great deals that include the Tembo Galleria, and might even work out cheaper than tickets to the lower deck bought on the day. Read more.

How long will a trip to the Tokyo Skytree take?

It depends on how much you enjoy looking at views! From the elevator ride onwards, most people spend between one and two hours enjoying the view from either one or both observation decks. However, if you’re planning on eating lunch at the top then you might want to schedule in around three hours instead. Read more.

What things can you do or see near the Tokyo Skytree?

There are lots of things to do in the building at the foot of the Tokyo Skytree! Tokyo Skytree Town includes dozens of restaurants and shops, plus the Sumida Aquarium and the Konica Minolta Planetarium where you can lie back and look at the stars at any time of the day. There’s also the Postal Museum, where you can learn about the history of Japan’s post office. Tokyo Skytree is also reasonably close to Sensō-ji, Tokyo’s oldest Buddhist temple, so you might want to visit both sights on the same day. Read more.
