First Sunrise at Tokyo Skytree 2025

Appreciate the first sunrise of the year from up high

Venue: Tokyo Skytree When: Early Jan 2025

Welcoming a new year is done in different ways across the globe, and one of Japan's customs is celebrating hatsuhinode, or the first sunrise of the year. The First Sunrise event at Tokyo Skytree allows a select number of visitors to enjoy first light over the city from an incredible vantage point on a strictly first-come, first-served basis.

Getting there

Tokyo Skytree can be conveniently accessed from either the Tokyo Skytree Station on the Tobu Skytree Line (2 minutes away on foot), or Oshiage Station on the Hanzomon Line (6 minutes away on foot).

There is also the Skytree Loop Bus which has several pickup points in Tokyo - details about the bus service can be found here.
