I was so excited to climb the second tallest building in the world! I've lived in Japan for about 3 years, but I had never been to Skytree tower. It was insane to be able to see so incredibly far. Even the big skyscapers seemed small from the top observatory of Sky tree.
Skytree is a broadcast tower in Tokyo, and one of the tallest buildings in Japan and the second tallest building in the world. Being at the top observatory is truly an unreal experience. Everything looks so amazingly small. Skytree hosts a number of events throughout the year. We were lucky enough to go shortly after the release of The Force Awakens, so there was a special Star Wars event. One thing to be careful about is the long wait times. The special ticket for tourists gets you around some of the people, but it can still be quite the wait.

The entrance to the Tokyo Skytree is on the 4th floor of Tokyo Skytree Town, which spans the area between Tokyo Skytree Station (formerly known as Narihirabashi Station) on the Tobu Isesaki Line, and Oshiage Station on the Asakusa Subway Line, Hanzomon Subway Line and Keisei Oshiage Line. Alternatively, it is a 20 minute walk across the Sumida River from Asakusa.
Tokyo Skytree can also be reached by direct buses from Tokyo Station (30 minutes, 520 yen one way, 2 buses/hour), Ueno Station (30 minutes, 220 yen, 4 buses/hour), Tokyo Disney Resort (45-55 minutes, 720 yen, 1 bus/hour) and Haneda Airport (50-70 minutes, 920 yen, 1 bus/hour).
