The Tokyo Skytree is Japan's tallest building, with a total of 450 floors. The tower is one of the most iconic focal points of Tokyo's skyline and is perhaps one of the most awe inspiring views you will ever witness.
The Skytree is open from 8:00am to 10:00pm, and no matter what time of day you decide to go, you will not be disappointed. Tokyo is known for its impressively large and sprawling landscape, but to truly understand this modern marvel a view from the top is necessary.
You can spend as much time up in the clouds as you care to, maybe with some tea or a light meal at the tower's cafe. Going at night nearly brought me to tears – the atmosphere was crushingly beautiful and the piano played over the loud speakers soothed everyone into a state of reflection.

Hello everyone! My name is Charlie, I'm a 21 year old foreign exchange student from Boston, Mass studying abroad for a year. I've always wanted to travel, especially to Japan, and so far it's been absolutely fantastic. I love photography and occasionally making videos/vlogs about my experiences here, and would love to get into any form of professional media/ travel guide work. From my experiences as a college student, I love to find the best things to do while on a budget, as I'm sure many of us out there are limited to! Traveling can be expensive, and sometimes all the options seem daunting or simply undoable. I'm inclined to believe otherwise! I'm a pretty outgoing person, love exploring, meeting new people and pushing my boundaries.
