Japan Tōkyō-to Sumida City

Tokyo Skytree

A 634-meter-tall broadcast, restaurant, and observation tower in Sumida, Tokyo, known as the tallest structure in Japan and a popular landmark.

Tips from the community

Since you’ve already been to the Shinjuku Government Building’s observation deck, you can skip the view from the top of the Skytree and take in the views from below, looking up at the impressive 2,080-foot structure. The deck on the 4th floor has plenty of seating for optimal viewing locations. The attached Tokyo Solamachi mall is a maze of every Japanese store you’ve ever wanted to visit on your Tokyo trip. The Skytree’s dazzling lights make for a fun evening on the deck with a picnic dinner and an adult beverage from the 7-11 across the street. Watch the time here or set an alarm because this is the prime setting for an “oh sh**” moment and dashing to catch the last train home.

With one of the most breathtaking views of the city and an icon of Tokyo itself, the Skytree is an attraction you don’t want to miss. Plenty of quirky cafes, boutique shopping, and fun activities make up this massive entertainment tower. Head up to the top at sunset for a fantastic look at Tokyo beneath the balmy rose-tinted sunlight.
