At 634 meters, Tokyo Skytree is the tallest structure in Tokyo and one of the tallest structures in the world. It’s designed to resemble a 5-story pagoda (a tiered religious tower commonly seen across Asia), but serves a more modern purpose as a broadcast and communications tower.

There are two observation decks—one at 350 meters and the other at 450 meters—that boast a 360-degree panoramic view of the city. There’s also a bit of glass flooring for the viewing pleasure of you brave souls out there.

There are three types of tickets available. A ticket that allows access to both observation decks, a ticket that allows access to only the lower deck (Tembo Deck), and a ticket that gives access to the upper deck only (Tembo Gallery). Prices also vary depending on whether you’re visiting on a weekday or on the weekend, when they are slightly higher.

We know it’s not the most cheapo attraction in Tokyo, but it still may be on your tourist bucket list—that’s why we’ve compiled a few tips for saving money when visiting Tokyo Skytree.

The tower is often illuminated for special occasions and holidays.
