Standing at 634 meters or 2,080.5 feet stands the worlds tallest free-standing broadcasting tower in the world. An interesting fact about how the Skytree’s height capped off at 634 meters. Historically the Skytree stands in an old province called Musashi. The ancient japanese way to say the numbers 6. 3. 4. is pronounced:
Spelled out Musashi, ironically the height of the tower and the old province in which it stands.
Inside the Skytree’s observation deck, you will find a 360° view of Tokyo Metropolis. But don’t expect to walk right into the tower. We had about a 3 hour wait. At Skytree’s arrival lobby on level 4 we were given a ticket. One ticket for each person in your party. DO NOT lose this ticket. You will not be able to enter into the tower without it. On this ticket there is a time for you and your party to come back. Do not be late, late members will not be admitted.
We had about an hour an half wait till we needed to come back. During this time we shopped at the mall in the tower. Skytree’s Mall called Solamachi has more than 300 shops and restaurants, click here for shop information. Finally after almost 3 hours of waiting we were greeted with an amazing view of Tokyo Metropolis.
