Time Out says

Catch the best views of Tokyo at this 360° open-air observation deck at the rooftop of Shibuya Scramble Square. Shibuya Sky is approximately 230 metres above ground and is the highest point in the district of Shibuya. The ‘Sky Edge’, a corner where you can look down at the cityscape below without any obstruction, is a particularly good photo spot that provides a panoramic view of the city. 

In addition to the breathtaking views, the rooftop also features hammocks for cloud watching and an observation compass to help you identify major landmarks in the distance such as Tokyo Tower, Tokyo Stadium and even Mt Fuji (on a clear day). At night, you'll be able to see a light show called the 'Crossing Light' as 18 beams illuminate the city sky. 

Shibuya Sky, however, is more than just an observatory: it spans three floors and has an indoor section which incorporates dazzling digital art displays to encourage you to see the city in a different way. On the 46th floor, there is a café and bar, where you can sit back with a drink as you enjoy the aerial views of Tokyo at any time of day regardless of the weather. 

Admission for adults 18 years and older is ¥2,000 at the door, junior high school and high school students is ¥1,600, elementary school students is ¥1,000, and children aged 3 to 5 is ¥600. You can also purchase tickets in advance through the Shibuya Scramble Square website and get up to ¥200 discount – but tickets booked online are designated to a specific time slot on a specific date. Individuals with disabilities will be granted admission at half the price.

What’s on

Shibuya Sky First Sunrise

Celebrate the first day of 2023 at Shibuya Scramble Square’s spectacular rooftop observation deck. Only 300 people will get the chance to see the first sunset while looking out over the city from this spot 229 metres above ground. The event is a collaboration with Shibuya’s Konno Hachimangu Shrine, which sets up a small altar for the occasion. The shrine’s priest will even perform a special New Year’s prayer (from 7.10am), so visitors can join the celebration while performing hatsumode, the first shrine visit and prayer of the new year. Tickets cost ¥6,500 per person and must be purchased online in advance. The price includes your choice of amazake (sweet fermented rice drink) or sake as well as an omamori lucky charm and a ¥500 coupon, which you can use at the gift shop or the on-site café on that day. The event takes place from 5.30am to 8.30am.
