Shibuya Sky vs Tokyo Skytree or Tokyo Tower

Shibuya Sky, Tokyo Skytree and Tokyo Tower are not the same. Shibuya Sky is next to Shibuya Station. From the platform, you can look down on the famous Shibuya Scramble Crossing and Shibuya Center-Gai street. You can also see Tokyo Skytree and Tokyo Tower. The observation deck is on the rooftop, so you can feel outside air.

Tokyo Tower is near Tokyo Bay, and it's perfect for viewing the Rainbow Bridge and Odaiba area at night. You can also gaze out at Roppongi Hills, Azabudai Hills, and other skyscrapers at the heart of the city. If you want to look down upon Tokyo from its highest point, Tokyo Skytree's Tembo Galleria is the place to go. There you'll have an unbroken view of Tokyo from 450 m in the air.

Tips for visiting Shibuya Sky

The best time to go to Shibuya Sky? Just before sunset.

The best time to book is probably 30 minutes before sunset. However, since it is usually a popular time, make sure to leave some extra time for the queue. Sunset in Tokyo occurs at different times throughout the year. It varies from around 4:30 p.m. in early December to around 7:00 p.m. in late June and early July.

Be careful about the opening hours

Shibuya Sky opens at 10:00 a.m. and closes at 10:30 p.m. You can enter as late as 9:20 p.m. After that, you will not be allowed to enter. There is no time limit, you can stay as long as you like. People usually spend 90 minutes at Shibuya Sky.

Read the rules before your go

For safety reasons, you cannot bring travel luggage, food, drink, or animals onto the deck. Loose hats, earphones, tripods, and selfie sticks are also prohibited. You can bring your phone, glasses, and cameras that have a strap or can fit into your pocket to the deck. This means you will need to store any other belongings in the locker on the 46th floor. If you have a larger luggage, you will need to store it in the locker near Shibuya Station.

Check the weather to avoid disappointment

Definitely, you will want to visit on a sunny day. The rooftop might be closed during bad weather and strong winds. No refunds will be given after entry.

Visiting on a sunny day is ideal for enjoying the view.
You can gaze down on Shibuya Scramble Crossing, with thousands of people walking by. You can search for the city's landmarks such as Tokyo Tower and Tokyo Skytree, or look to the distant mountains and Pacific Ocean—all of Tokyo will be laid out before you.
