The One about Tokyo Skytree

IMG_8500

In 2012, Tokyo Skytree was unveiled to the public. A broadcasting, restaurant and observation tower in Sumida, Tokyo, the tower is the “tallest tower” in the world and the second tallest structure in the world.

Tokyo Skytree also serves as the primary television and radio broadcast site for the Kanto region.

As of 2015, Tokyo Skytree now has free Wi-Fi service and the location has a great view of the city via being on the first observatory deck (350m, Tokyo Skytree Tembo Deck) and the Tokyo Skytree Tembo Galleries (450m).

I thought the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building had fast elevators but Tokyo Skytree is fascinating because of how quick you can move from the bottom floor all the way up to the Tembo Deck.

While you can get advanced reservations through Tokyo Skytree Web Ticket, you can purchase day tickets from the 4th floor ticket counter but it’s best to get there early because its often crowded.

But right after visiting Tokyo Sky Tree, definitely check out the shops, especially at Tokyo Solamachi.
