    Tokyo Skytree

    1,534 Reviews
    6km from downtown
    "This time I went to Japan to live near Yasaka Station, just next to the Skytree. The Skytree will change color from time to time at night. It is completely two images with the morning. It is not a look at the observation deck. It looks good to take pictures or take pictures below."
    Highlights: Tokyo Skytree is a broadcasting, restaurant, and observation tower in Tokyo’s Sumida ward. Completed in 2011, it is the world’s tallest tower and the second tallest structure. The tower is the primary television and radio broadcast site for the Greater Tokyo Area. It is painted in an original color based on "aijiro," the lightest shade of Japanese traditional indigo blue. At night, the Tokyo Skytree is illuminated in one of two artistic lighting designs meant to express harmony and the connection between today and tomorrow. As a true landmark on the Tokyo skyline, the Tokyo Skytree is a great backdrop for any picture.

    SKY CIRCUS Sunshine 60 Observation Deck

    40 Reviews
    7.7km from downtown
    "Located near Ikebukuro Station in Tokyo, Japan, the building is 60 floors high. A comprehensive building integrating business, food, entertainment and office, and has facilities such as aquariums and exhibition halls."
    Highlights: Tokyo Ikebukuro Sunshine Tower, built in the 1960s, was the first skyscraper in Japan and is now one of the tallest buildings in Tokyo. The upper floor of Sunshine City is the Sunshine 60 Observatory. Standing on the 60th floor, 240 meters high, you can enjoy the panoramic view of Tokyo. It is also a good place to enjoy the night view of Tokyo. On a clear day, you can even see Mount Fuji in the distance. Sunshine City also has facilities such as aquariums, shopping malls, and sky restaurants. You can play from dawn to dusk. However, the Ikebukuro area is relatively far from the city center, so there are not many tourists who choose here.

    Caretta Shiodome

    46 Reviews
    787m from downtown
    "Traveling to Japan, this stop came to Tokyo, we stayed in a hotel in Shanghai, next to the hotel is the hotel in Shanghai, that is, a commercial building in Shanghai, Shanghai is a rich area, access to this building are high-end white collar. There are two subway lines connecting the building, one is the Lily Haitang Line, directly from the subway sign to the elevator, and then take the subway from the next shopping mall to the third floor, but the sign of this subway line is very inconspicuous and difficult to find. The other is the JR line, with clear signs, just walk along, so the overall transportation is convenient."
    Highlights: The most famous one in the Shiodome area is the Miyazaki Clock. Caretta Shiodome is quite bustling with more than 600 restaurants, shops, and facilities such as the Four Seasons Theater. The observation decks on the 46th and 47th floors offer a great view of Tokyo Bay. Although only one side can be visited, because it is free and there are few tourists, it is recommended to arrange it within the itinerary.
