Shibuya Sky: Look out over Tokyo from a skyscraper viewing platform

Located 230 metres above sea level on the 45th and 46th floor of a new skyscraper, the Shibuya Sky platform is located in the Shibuya district of the same name, known for its busy intersection.

With a view over a near-endless sea of buildings and up to the holy Mount Fuji on the horizon, there’s a new viewing platform for tourists in Tokyo.

Located 230 metres above sea level on the 45th and 46th floor of a new skyscraper, the Shibuya Sky platform is in the Shibuya district of the same name, known for its busy intersection.

From the 360-degree panorama viewing platform at the top of the Shibuya Scramble Square skyscraper, visitors can see the Tokyo Skytree, the Tokyo Tower and the Shinjuku and Roppongi districts.

On a clear day, you can even see the volcanic pyramid of Fuji in the distance, according to Toyko’s tourism office.

Shibuya Sky is open daily from 9 am to 11 pm, with last admission at 10 pm. Ticket sales start on December 1, 2019; until then tickets will only be available online.

Adults pay 2,000 Yen (18.50 dollars), children up to five years 600 Yen (5.50 dollars). The prices on the website are slightly lower at 1,800 yen (16.50 dollars) or 500 yen (4.50 dollars). The Tokyo Convention and Visitors Bureau recommends that you buy your tickets in advance.
