Time required: 4 hours
Start from Tobu Asakusa Station or Tobu TOKYO SKYTREE Station,
and visit the nearby tourist spots to get some spectacular views of SKYTREE.
At Senso-ji Temple, you can see a combination of the old and the new,
transcending generations: the venerable old grounds of the temple and the modern SKYTREE.
At Jukken Bridge, you can see the amazing structure of SKYTREE inverted and reflected in the river.
Feel SKYTREE’s majesty and grandeur and then set your sights for the Tembo Deck.
Later, just as on the Sorakara Course Royal Road Course,
you can enjoy the astonishing views from up in the sky as much as you want.
After taking a look at the Farm Garden, you may want to have a bite to eat in TOKYO Solamachi.
You may even feel like returning to some nearby tourist spots for their amazing views of SKYTREE.
SKYTREE will look even more awe-inspiring this time round, compared to when you first saw it.
*The time needed for these courses depends on how crowded the attraction is, amongst other factors, so please consider these timings as an indication only.
You may want to go to Senso-ji Temple or Jukken Bridge. At Jukken Bridge the reflection of inverted SKYTREE is beautiful, whether it is clear sky or windy. We suggest you decide where to go based on the weather and the color of SKYTREE on the day. For example, when SKYTREE’s lighting is blue ("Iki”), you can enjoy the color contrast at Senso-ji Temple, which is predominantly red.
The Tembo Deck has plenty of benches dotted around where you can sit and take in the views at your leisure. But there are so many different views for you to see, and different ways of looking at the landscape for you to discover. For example, the view from the landing on the stairway connecting Floors 350 and 345. Walk around and you might just catch a fleeting view of the city at night that only you will ever see. It’s there for an instant, and then it’s gone!
The SKYTREE ROUND THEATER gives you a sense of reality and presence wherever you stand in it. It has 18 speakers, so the acoustics are perfect! You get a wider perspective if you stand a little way back from the windows by the pillars in the middle of the observation platform passage. You can take good pictures of the night view or the performance from here.
The TEMBO GALLERIA has a higher vantage point than the Tembo Deck. The sloping galleria walkway is built so that its glass windows curve outwards enabling you to look directly downwards. Take a look back down the slope you have just climbed. The night view which stretches out before you as you look down the galleria slope is absolutely magnificent.
The SKYTREE CAFE has two separate areas, on two different levels. They have different views as they face out in diametrically opposite directions. On Floor 350, you can relive old memories against a backdrop of heart-warming views of Saitama. On Floor 340, you can look to the future with a view of Tokyo, sparkling and glittering in the night.
The SKYTREE’s lighting strikes an impression and ensures you always feel its presence. You can find some interesting night views here in the Farm Garden. SKYTREE appears to shoot up out of the lawn and the surrounding trees. It looks so pretty from here (you could even say “cute”).
