Free Observation Deck in Tokyo

The most popular observation deck in Tokyo is probably the Tokyo Sky Tree, 634m height, a new symbol of Tokyo.

The second is Tokyo Tower which is also a symbol of Tokyo for long years.

All travel guide books introduce these two observation spot for travelers.



Want to Save Your Money?

Both “Tokyo Sky Tree” and “Tokyo Tower” are nice place to visit of course. But it costs more than 3000 JPY per person to go up to the highest observation deck of each.

I know it’s a little hesitant price for some travelers, especially for young backpackers.
But I want you to have the Tokyo night view experience.

So this time I picked up 2 observation decks which you can save your budget a lot for you.
