So we went to the Tokyo Skytree, which is the tallest building in Japan – and, with a height of 634 meters, the second tallest building in the world. It has the fourth highest observation deck in the world, at 450 meters.
The view from up here is breathtaking and well worth the 3.000 Yen entrance fee. (It’s about 2.060 Yen to get to the „Tembo Deck“ at 350 meters and another 1.030 Yen to go to the „Tembo Galleria“ at 450 meters.)
You can’t quite fathom how large the greater Tokyo area actually is. It is building after building as far as you can see.
I visited the the Tokyo Tower a couple of years back. It offers another great view of Tokyo from above, but from there you feel like you are right in the middle of it all. On top of the Skytree you feel kind of detached, almost like hovering above the city. Highly recommended.
Enjoy the photographs!
