If there’s one thing you must do in Tokyo, it’s visit the Tokyo Skytree. This huge building quite literally towers over the city as it’s the world’s tallest tower! Tokyo is a huge city in terms of landmass but because it doesn’t have too many skyscrapers and the tower is located out of the business district it means that the views from the top of the tower are incredible!!!
My photos really don’t do it justice. It’s hands down the best view I’ve seen. Both myself and Stew felt it beat the Sydney view we saw from our amazing dining experience there, and it also beat the view from the top of the Empire State Building (bold words I know!).
It was so breathtaking and because we went up at sunset (around 5pm in January) it meant we got to see the city change from daylight to nighttime, lighting up as far as the eye could see. We were also told that on a clear day you can see Mount Fuji in the distance too.
The Tokyo Skytree is very reasonable too at just £10 for the initial viewing platform and then an extra £5 if you want to go up a further 5 floors to the highest point. There is also a cafe at the top for you to have a coffee and gaze out at this magical landscape.
