See a whole other side of the world’s tallest freestanding tower, on the Tokyo Skytree® Secret Tour! On this tour, you’ll be shown around the foot of the iconic tower by an enthusiastic English-speaking guide. Glimpse a side of the Skytree that few people see, with a behind-the-scenes look around “Nishi Kanae” — the western foot of the tower’s three-legged frame. Enjoy an up-close examination of the imposing structure, unique views of the Skytree from its base, and a wealth of knowledge imparted by your host. Why is the Skytree made the way it is? How does it withstand Japan’s frequent earthquakes? And what happens when lightning strikes? Learn the answers to these questions, and others you never knew you had, as your guide shows you around the Skytree® Archives and Gallery. At the end of the tour, your guide takes you up 350 meters to the Tembo Deck — no tickets lines on this tour — and leaves you to enjoy the views from on top of the world at your own pace.
