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 ¥900, and children aged 3 to 5 is ¥500. 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.
