  • Tokyo Skytree Admission Ticket

    1. Tokyo Skytree Admission Ticket

    Arrive at TOKYO SKYTREE® and head up to the 4th floor, where you're greeted by friendly staff. Here, you'll get your ticket and head straight into an elevator that takes you shooting seamlessly up to the 1,150-foot (350-m) Tembo Deck in no time. The enormous, circular deck features windows on all sides, allowing you 360-degree views of Tokyo City. See the winding Sumida River, look for the Tokyo Dome, and even find the Tokyo Tower—interactive displays help you pick out points of interest too. If you choose to visit the Tembo Galleria, hop into another elevator and rush up to the 1,475-foot (450-m) viewing space. The Galleria features a long, sloping spiral ramp that offers an even more dynamic view of the city. On your way back to the ground, stop by Floor 345 to check out the gift shop, and pause at Floor 340 for a dizzying view straight down from a section of sturdy glass flooring.

    This is a must do in Tokyo!! I was super scared about taking the elevator for so many floors but the experience is actually very seamless and fun! The staff is SUPER friendly and they greet you with a big smile when you get to the top, take a picture and direct you to the amazing views of the entire city! If you can, go to the second floor, the views are breathtaking! Pro tip - if you want to see Mt. Fuji, arrive early and chose a sunny day :)

What people are saying about Tokyo

Good value for money. We were very lucky to have an excellent full view of Mt Fuji the entire day. Among the places we went to Arakurayama Sengen Park was the best, Lake Kawaguchi came second, but it was a little too much time given to that place. Guide Ai was very polite; they provided disinfectant at the bus, which was very appropriate as I was a little nervous about going on a bus trip at the time of an outbreak. They changed the last stop to another village because the one on the original itinerary was temporarily closed. Overall it felt a little too long for such an easy tour, but I was satisfied thanks to great weather and perfect views of Mt Fuji.

Tour was fantastic! Naow was a great guide - informative, kind, great English, very helpful and went out of her way to ensure we enjoyed ourselves such as by being our personal photographer!! We were very lucky with the weather and had great views - would recommend checking the weather in advance to booking. Ps. At the lake, get bento boxes or the like from a 7 eleven and enjoy the views of the mountain whilst eating!! Better than the restaurant!

We were traveling with some senior members, and so a wheelchair and elderly friendly tour was what we need. This package is definitely a convenient and best way to reach all the great spots around Fuji mountain areas in one day!

This was a wonderful day trip with extraordinary sights of breathtaking Mt. Fugi. Even though our driver Was limited English speaking, (private van tour) he was kind and caring beyond belief.

The spots our guide took us to we're amazing. We took lots of pictures and hope to go back and see a few more.
