Tokyo Skytree

Attractions, Sightseeing Oshiage

Time Out says

The tallest freestanding tower in the world opened on May 22 2012, rising to a height of 634m over the Sumida skyline. While its main function is as TV a broadcasting tower, the Tokyo Skytree has also become one of the capital's must-visit tourist destinations. The area around its base is home to Tokyo Skytree Town, a complex boasting 310 shops and restaurants, plus designated school and office space. (Yes, there's a Skytree school...)

Tokyo Skytree has two observation points. First, you reach the Tembo Deck, which is 350m above ground, and after walking up through the Tembo Galleria, you reach the Sorakara Point – at just over 450m in the air, it's Tokyo's highest observation deck.
