The Tokyo Skytree
When visiting Tokyo, a must visit tourist attraction is the Tokyo Skytree, the largest tower in the world. At 634 meters (2,080 feet), the Tokyo Tower is absolutely the best place in Tokyo to get a 360 panoramic view of the city. The tower is the primary television and broadcast site for the Kanto region, however its actual purpose is often overshadowed by simply being an observation tower with an amazing view of the city. Although advance tickets are available for purchase, I don’t recommend you buy them. Advance tickets will no doubt guarantee a day and time reserved ticket, however there are no guarantees for clear skies. It is absolutely necessary to visit on a nice day if you are at all interested in capturing the moment. Lastly, there is a Fast Skytree Ticket Counter for international visitors for a shorter wait, but be aware it costs slightly more and may be unnecessary if the standard lines are not busy, take a look around and evaluate the value before purchasing. Don’t forget to bring your passport in order to take advantage of the international perk.
