If you have a head for heights or sights, Shibuya Sky has one of the best panoramic views across Tokyo. This open-air observation deck on the 47th floor of Shibuya Scramble Square offers glimpses of Tokyo Skytree, Tokyo Tower, and even Mt. Fuji.

This makes Shibuya Sky one of the best places in Tokyo to take that perfect holiday snap. You’ll want to reach out and touch the sky, with Tokyo at your feet.

Things to do at Shibuya Sky

The unparalled views of Shibuya (and Tokyo in general) from Shibuya Sky can make for breathtaking memento shots. Imagine yourself standing with the whole city rolling away behind you, or with landmarks at your shoulders.

Sky Stage

The Sky Stage — the open-air deck — on the 47th floor has several locations with unobstructed city views that make for amazing photographs. There’s a photo service, if you want to pay for a perfect shot. Afterwards, relax in a cloud hammock and watch the sky.

The Roof bar

A seasonal addition to the Sky Stage is The Roof, an open-air bar offering a more private view overlooking the skyline. It’s open from April 28 to December 25 in 2024, from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m daily. The roof has both standing tables and couches at the edge of the platform, both presenting amazing photo opportunities and intimate space.

If you want to take advantage of the private couch seating, you’ll have to make a reservation and order in advance, whereas the standing tables are open to all patrons. The Roof’s menu offers beers, wine, sake, cocktails, non-alcoholic drinks and light snacks. The bar accepts payment through cash, card, or most Japanese payment apps.

Sky Gallery

Don’t overlook the 46th floor, which has the Sky Gallery. With unique art installations opposite floor-to-ceiling windows, you can spot the landmarks of Tokyo while enjoying the interactive exhibitions. This part is inside, so it’s shielded from the elements.

Here too is Paradise Lounge, where you can grab a drink or snack. There are also souvenir shops on the 46th and 45th floors with all kinds of Shibuya Sky merch.

Shibuya Sky tickets

Tickets for Shibuya Sky can be purchased in advance online or on the day at the lobby on the 14th floor. Tickets are ¥2,500 for adults, ¥2,000 for middle or high school students, and ¥1,000 for elementary students.

We recommend buying online, as there is sometimes a discount. Also, tickets at the lobby tend to sell out most days, so it’s better to buy in advance to avoid disappointment.

Getting to Shibuya Sky

Given that it’s right next to Shibuya Station (a major transport hub), Shibuya Sky is easy to reach from almost anywhere in Tokyo. Coming from JR Shibuya Station, Shibuya Scramble Square is a 1-minute walk from the station’s south exit. If you take the subway, there is direct elevator access to the 14th floor lobby from exit B2.

Shibuya Sky is entirely wheelchair accessible with elevators at every level. Staff will guide you to the 46th floor, and there are priority lifts between the 46th and 47th floors.

Our tips

Just a few of our tips for the best experience at Shibuya Sky:

  • Check the weather before you go! The Sky Stage is usually closed on windy or rainy days, while sunny days will give you the best views and photos.
  • Pack light for this one. You don’t want to be bogged down with things for your photos. Also most things have to be left in a locker before you can go out onto the Sky Stage.
  • The best spots will have short queues for them. Spend that time planning out your photo — your poses and backgrounds. When you get to the spot, you’ll only have a minute or so to take your pictures.
  • For the best photos, head to the corners with white lines. They have the best views across Tokyo with no obstructions or glass in the way.
  • The sunset at Shibuya Sky is one of the best.
  • The Roof Bar
