Tokyo Skytree

Travel Guide - Tokyo Skytree


Tokyo Skytree is a broadcasting and observation tower opened in 2012. The tower is Japan's tallest structure at a height of 634 meters above the ground.
The No. 1 observatory (TEMBO GALLERIA) 450 meters above the ground is a sky walkway covered in glass that provides a view of all of Tokyo. At the highest point of the observatory at 451.2 meters, the LED lights in the floor are used for shows and visitors can enjoy a spectacular view. Visitors can also enjoy delicious food at the restaurant at the No. 2 observatory (TEMBO DECK) while enjoying the scenery from a height of 350 meters above the ground.
An original color based on the traditional Japanese color "Aijiro" is used throughout the entire tower, colored in a faint bluish white which evokes thoughts of white porcelain. In cross section the base of the tower is an equilateral triangle which changes into a rounded circular shape along the height of the building making for an original shape which together with the illumination of the building at night is an absolute must-see.
