TOKYO SKYTREE TOWN℠ 東京スカイツリータウン℠

1-1-2 Oshiage, Sumida City, Tokyo

In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.

Modern shopping and entertainment complex in the heart of an old-school downtown area

With towering Tokyo Skytree® at its center, Tokyo Skytree Town® lacks no shortage of visitors. But the additional attractions―including the shopping plaza Tokyo Solamachi®, a world-class aquarium, and a planetarium installed with state-of-the-art Japanese technology―are what make the large multi-purpose complex worthy of a visit.

Tips

  • Surveying Tokyo and its surrounds from lofty TOKYO SKYTREE®
  • Starry days and date nights at Konica Minolta Planetarium Tenku in TOKYO SKYTREE TOWN
  • Watery wildlife at the Sumida Aquarium

Opened in 2012 across the Sumidagawa River from Asakusa, TOKYO SKYTREE TOWN® shopping and entertainment complex is a convenient way to round out a visit to the old shitamachi downtown area of Asakusa. The complex’s main draw is soaring Tokyo Skytree®, a 634-meter high television broadcasting tower with freestanding structures and Tembo Deck with unbeaten views of Tokyo and neighboring districts.

The 300-odd shops and restaurants at the foot of TOKYO SKYTREE collectively known as Tokyo Solamachi strive to embrace new trends but at the same time, capture the feel of this area of Tokyo from days of yore.

Other tenants include Konica Minolta Planetarium “Tenku”. Employing the latest in projection camera technology, the planetarium runs regular events, many of which are marketed as fun date events for adults.

Nearby Sumida Aquarium on the 5th and 6th floors, housing around 57,000 sea creatures, has more of a family feel and allows an intimate look at marine life while in the heart of Tokyo. Visit the aquarium to watch penguins and seals cavorting in the indoor open-pool tank and see tanks representing the habitats of Tokyo Bay and the Izu and Ogasawara islands. You can also observe the daily operations of the keepers as they tend to the needs of the aquatic life.
