- Let's visit TOKYO SKYTREE TOWN
A world class view is not the only attraction here. The impressive TOKYO SKYTREE TOWN has so much to gaze at, eat, experience, and see that it will take more than just one day to enjoy everything. Use HANEDA AIRPORT EXPRESS for easy access from Haneda Airport.
World's tallest tower at 634m
At a height of 634m, TOKYO SKYTREE has been recognized as the world's tallest tower by Guinness World Records Corporate. It was constructed as a TV tower that could supply a stable TV signal head and shoulders above the many tall buildings standing at over 200m in central Tokyo. The shape of the tower is particularly memorable. At its base is a triangular design that reduces the sense of oppression and the effects of shadows. Depending on the angle and the location, you can enjoy various features of the tower's circular design as it leads to the top.
Centered around TOKYO SKYTREE is TOKYO SKYTREE TOWN, a large complex facility featuring attractions such as an aquarium and planetarium, the shopping area of TOKYO Solamachi, and offices and restaurants in the TOKYO SKYTREE East Tower.
TOKYO SKYTREE TOWN is just under an hour away from Haneda Airport by HANEDA AIRPORT EXPRESS. With its spacious luggage area, you can travel in comfort.
With a 360-degree grand panorama, this is one of the greatest views in the world
TOKYO SKYTREE has two viewing platforms. At 350m, the TOKYO SKYTREE Tembo Deck offers a 360-degree view of stunning scenery. In fine weather, the floating feeling gained from a view that stretches for about 70km is a unique feature of TOKYO SKYTREE. Up another 100m is TOKYO SKYTREE Tembo Galleria, a glass-sided, tube-like corridor at a height of 450m above ground. The highlight is surely the view of Tokyo from the sky. Don't miss this unique sight of Tokyo as seen from mid-air!
Admission tickets can be purchaed from the ticket counter on the 4th floor. There is huge demand, so please reserve a space while waiting in turn.
TOKYO SKYTREE Tembo Deck is located 350m above ground and features cafés (on floors 340 and 350) and a restaurant (on floor 345). Here, you can enjoy a meal while gazing at the magnificent scenery. There are also many interesting exhibitions, featuring exhibits of interest such as folding screens depicting the landscape of Old Tokyo.
A fascinating aquarium with uncompromising display standards
With large numbers of fish from the World Heritage Site Ogasawara Islands swimming around, big fish such as sand tiger sharks and rays calmly swim about and colorful shoals of fish elegantly pass right in front of your eyes in the large water-tank. Adjacent is the incredibly popular booth with a zone for up-close observation of penguins and fur seals. Don't miss the particularly beautiful layouts of the 360-degree view natural water-tank and the special water-tank that provides a sensation of a sky/water environment. A laboratory with new display methods using simple explanations and views of the breeding staff working are increasingly popular.
