Towering 634m above the metropolis, Tokyo Skytree is a much-loved symbol of the capital city. It is the tallest structure in Japan and offers incredible panoramic views of the skyline, even offering a glimpse of Fuji on a clear day. While its main function is a television broadcasting tower, the Skytree has a host of attractions that are ideal for a rainy day in Tokyo. Within the base, visitors will find an aquarium, a planetarium and even a small postal museum. There is also a huge complex of shops and restaurants, including popular Japanese brands and character-stores. The main attraction, however, is the view, and there are two different observation decks available. The lower Tembo deck is 350m high and has huge panoramic windows as well as a souvenir store and restaurant. Higher up at 450m, the Tembo Gallery is reached by following a spiraling pathway wrapped around the tower. The views are extensive and will depend on the weather, so aim for clear skies and consider having a back-up plan if you need to reschedule. A sunset slot is a great option as you can see the city as night falls, offering the best of both worlds. Entry Fees: Tickets are offered on a sliding scale depending on age, day and which observation deck you wish to visit. There is a choice between single tickets for the Tembo Deck or Gallery or a combined ticket for both. Weekdays are a little cheaper than weekends, and certain holidays are also more expensive. Children aged between 6-11 years have the lowest ticket prices but there are also discounts for those aged between 12-17 years old. There is a special fast-pass option for international visitors which does not require a reservation but does need photo ID. This ticket is divided into two age-ranges: 6-11 and 12 and over. For all tickets, children under the age of five enter free and visitors with a disability can receive half-price tickets for all but fast-pass options. Opening Hours 9 am - 9 pm (some changes for specific holidays, events)
