Tokyo Skytree, which rises to a height of about 634 meters, claims to be the tallest structure in Japan. Inside this tower, located in the Sumida district, you will find a large shopping mall as well as a restaurant and observation deck. At night, Tokyo Skytree shimmers with blue and pink colors.
The observation deck is open until 22:00, and we advise you to come here later to see the city sparkling with lights below.
It is no coincidence that the height of the Tokyo Skytree, the “Tokyo Sky Tree”, is 634 meters: the Japanese wanted to emphasize the symbolism of this structure. The numbers 6-3-4 sound in old Japanese as “mu” – “sa” – “si” – in the 18th century this was the name of the province where modern Tokyo now stands.
To this day, Tokyo Skytree remains the tallest television tower in the world and the second tallest after the Burj Khalifa . The entrance is located on the 4th floor of Tokyo Solamachi Mall, which houses over 300 shops, restaurants, cafes, a planetarium and an aquarium.
From the 4th floor of the complex, an elevator takes visitors to a height of 350 m in a minute – to the lower observation deck Tembo Deck. On its first tier, not only the walls are glazed, but also sections of the floor, which not weakly tickles the nerves of even tough samurai. The second elevator takes you to the highest observation deck in the world – Tembo Galleria (additional ticket required).
