Tokyo Skytree Town

× How was it?

Tokyo Skytree Town (東京スカイツリータウン) is a modern commercial center in the Sumida District of Tokyo that was opened in May 2012. Located across the Sumida River from Asakusa, Tokyo Skytree Town was built by Tobu Railway in conjunction with television broadcasters. At its center stands the Tokyo Skytree, a 634 meter high television broadcasting tower and landmark of the city.

Around the base of Tokyo Skytree lies Tokyo Solamachi, a shopping and entertainment complex with over 300 shops and restaurants. Tokyo Solamachi also features several plazas and green spaces from where you can admire the tower, as well as a planetarium and the Sumida Aquarium. To the east of the tower is the Skytree East Building office complex with restaurants on its top floors.
