I don’t know about you guys but I have a thing with high places. I love to see everything from way up high either looking down from a tall building, from a tower or even falling from a high speed roller coaster. Not only for the reason that I love the rush of adrenaline and the tingling feeling on the feet but most especially for a very simple idea of how small we are in this big and vast world – and that would also mean that our worries and problems are just a tiny spec in this universe and should not make a huge effect in our life even how little we are.
Anyway, enough with the heavy. What I’m trying to say is going up to Tokyo Sky Tree was perhaps one of the coolest thing we did while in Tokyo. It stands as high as 634 meters and has been a main sight for tourist attraction as the most popular observatory deck in Japan.
Tickets are available on the main floor of the tower surrounded with facilities like Tokyo Sky Tree Town which consists of shopping areas, dining and etc. If you are not into heights I bet you can still enjoy visiting Tokyo Skytree because of all the shops flooding the entire vicinity.
There are two decks option to choose from; first is the 350 meters and the other is 450 meters, each should be paid separately. Of course, do you think we’d miss the chance of going higher? We went all the way up to 450 meters and the whole Tokyo has never been tiny as ever.
They also have a glass floor where you can stand on and take a look all the way down.
I highly suggest to spend a little bit longer to see the sun down. Don’t worry, on top they do have a cafe and restaurant a souvenir shop and a relaxing area facing the view. It’s the perfect place to escape the hustle and the bustle of the city once in awhile.
