Japan's newest and best Sky Tower with a nice shopping mall

  • Sightseeing
  • Special Recommendations

Open in 2012, take either the Hanzomon line and get off at Oshiage station or take the TOBU line to Tokyo Skytree station. You will be fascinated by the 634m TV Anntena tower which is the highest self-supporting tower in the world.

There are two observatories and the first one is located at 350m high from where you can even see clouds below!! To get this, you use one out of the four elevators which design is based on Japan's four seasons. When you get into the elevator, you will know which season you are in!! After the first observatory, you have one more chance to go higher. That is 450m high SPECIAL observatory from where you enjoy a grand panoramic view of Tokyo as well as Chiba prefecture, Mt. Fuji and so on. You may feel you are in the sky and become a bird!! Once you get there, don’t miss the highest point, they called it 'Sorakara point' which is 451.2m high.

Tokyo Skytree has its own three very unique characters. In the shops, you will find those cute characters whose names are Sorakara-chan (a star-shaped-head girl), Teppenpen (a penguin) and ScoBulbul (a bulldog). These are must-buy souvenirs from Tokyo Skytree.

Also, at the foot of the tower there is a big and nice shopping mall called ‘Tokyo Solamachi’ where you can see many different kinds of shops including Japan and Tokyo souvenirs as well as clothes and sweets shops!!
