Tokyo: Tokyo Skytree Admission Ticket

Discover unbeatable views of Tokyo from the Tembo Observation Deck of the Tokyo Skytree tower with this admission ticket. Feel the thrill of riding the elevator to an elevation of 350 meters. Choose from ticketing options with or without access to the stunning Tembo Galleria. Arrive at the Tokyo Skytree tower and head up to the 4th floor, where you're greeted by friendly staff. Here, you'll get your ticket and head straight into an elevator that takes you shooting seamlessly up to the 1,150-foot (350-m) Tembo Deck in no time. The enormous, circular deck features windows on all sides, allowing you 360-degree views of Tokyo City. See the winding Sumida River, look for the Tokyo Dome, and even find the Tokyo Tower—interactive displays help you pick out points of interest too.

The Galleria features a long, sloping spiral ramp that offers an even more dynamic view of the city.

Tokyo: Japan's Cultural Curiosities Walking Tour

3. Tokyo: Japan's Cultural Curiosities Walking Tour

Your 3-hour Tokyo tour begins in the Ningyocho neighborhood, a district known for its timeless traditions and, as you’ll discover right away, tasty treats. The fragrance of cinnamon will lead you to a shop that specializes in Japanese sweets. Established in 1897, in the Meiji Era, this shop stays true to its origins. Visit an incense store that dates back to 1705, and learn about kōdō, the art of appreciating incense. You’ll also stop at a little gift shop that carries traditional Japanese items, from calligraphy tools to decorative wares. If you’re hungry by this point, that’s good, as you’ll be stopping at a snack shop from the Showa Era that features treats popular in the early 20th century, including candies, caramels, ramune soda, fish jerky, and bean paste snacks, to name a few. Next, you'll visit a shop that specialises in a traditional snack: senbei (rice crackers), a favourite in many Japanese households, which is happily gluten and dairy free. Try sweet kawara senbei (made from flour actually, not rice), as well as salty rice crackers, a favorite in many Japanese households. Cross the street to a shamisen shop, and learn a bit about this traditional Japanese stringed instrument. Then head to a local tenugui shop, where they sell woven hand towels depicting Japanese scenes. Your Tokyo tour guide will next show one of the 8 temples in Ningyocho. Visit a shrine where virtue, longevity, learning, and wealth are worshiped. You can offer a prayer here, and wash a coin to ensure a prosperous life. Visit the nearby neighborhood of Nihonbashi, a hub for merchants during the Edo period. Today, it’s predominantly a financial district that’s home to trading firms and the Tokyo Stock Exchange. Although Nihonbashi is very much a modern neighborhood, you’ll find many traditional Japanese shops hidden in its alleyways and even within its department stores. Stop at a seaweed shop, as well as an old-fashioned stationery shop that was established in 1946. Admire the display of calligraphy brushes, inks, traditional paints, handmade greeting cards, and little dolls. Check out a toothpick shop that has been in business since 1704 and that gives a little something extra special to buyers: each toothpick is wrapped in a piece of paper with a poem. You’ll also stop at a katsuobushi shop that can be traced back more than 200 years. Katsuobushi, or fish shavings, is used to make fish broth, the very essence of Japanese cooking. Lastly, you’ll visit a shop that makes golden leaves at 0.0001 of a millimeter, traditionally used for decorating ceramics, furnishings, and even food. The tour ends at the Nihonbashi information center, where you’ll get to taste a few more traditional Japanese sweets before saying sayōnara.

What people are saying about Chiba Prefecture

This is a must do in Tokyo!! I was super scared about taking the elevator for so many floors but the experience is actually very seamless and fun! The staff is SUPER friendly and they greet you with a big smile when you get to the top, take a picture and direct you to the amazing views of the entire city! If you can, go to the second floor, the views are breathtaking! Pro tip - if you want to see Mt. Fuji, arrive early and chose a sunny day :)

It is my first time in Tokyo and this was a perfect introduction to the city. Tomoko was great - showing me the old and the new - and giving me the background to the sites we visited. This was a great experience.

Was an amazing and excellent experience with the very knowledgeable and friendly Nobu. Would recommend to anyone.

It is worth it. Tokyo is seen from all angles. The elevator is very fast and the Tower staff is very friendly.

Very nice view, a must visit place in Tokyo! Definitely worth the extra cash to go up to the top level.
