Where to stay near Tokyo Sky Tree

Tokyo Sky Tree Hotels

The awe-inspiring Tokyo Sky Tree opened to the public in 2012, and swiftly established itself as one of the city’s most iconic structures, and as one of its most popular tourist attractions. Standing proudly at a jaw-dropping height of 634 metres, this gleaming, neo-futuristic marvel is almost double the height of the city’s previous tallest structure, the Tokyo Tower. The Sky Tree is just one of many thrilling sights to enjoy in Tokyo’s vibrant Sumida district. Like much of the city, this riverside ward is a truly irresistible blend of ultra-modernity and time-honoured tradition, with cutting-edge skyscrapers nestling side-by-side with ancient Buddhist temples and serene bonsai gardens.

Things to see

For some of the most breath-taking urban views you’ll find anywhere on the planet, take a turbo-speed elevator ride up to the Tokyo Sky Tree’s observation decks. You can view the mesmerising cityscape from 2 vantage points, with decks situated at 350 metres and 450 metres above street level. On a clear day you’ll see all the way to magnificent Mount Fuji, but if you visit after sunset, you’ll be greeted with the spectacle of a city illuminated by thousands upon thousands of glittering lights.

For a uniquely Japanese experience, head to Ryogoku Kokugikan, Tokyo’s legendary sumo wrestling hall. If you’re lucky enough to be visiting in January, May, or September, do whatever you can to secure tickets for one of the grand tournaments – the atmosphere inside the cavernous stadium is positively electric. The nearby Edo-Tokyo Museum is another must-visit attraction. This beautifully curated museum tells the story of the fascinating Edo period, when Japan was ruled by the feudal Tokugawa shogunate. A clear highlight is an incredible life-size replica of the world-famous Nihonbashi bridge.

Hotels in Tokyo Sky Tree

There’s a wealth of hotels near Tokyo Sky Tree to choose from, and prices across the board are more reasonable than in many other neighbourhoods. You’d have to travel a little further into central Tokyo to find the city’s top luxury hotels, but there are plenty of slick, modern, mid-range hotels such as Richmond Hotel Premier Tokyo Oshiage and Hotel LiVEMAX ASAKUSA SKY FRONT, where you can enjoy great amenities like 24-hour business centres and rooftop bars, plus lovely home comforts like flat-screen TVs, premium bedding, and free toiletries. The area is also great if you have a tight budget, with no-frills hotels and backpacker hostels such as O3 inn TOKYO – Hostel, offering travel essentials like free WiFi, and tickets and tour assistance.

Where to stay

The construction of the Sky Tree has turned the Sumida area into a thriving visitor destination. At the base of the tower you’ll find Tokyo Solamachi, a state-of-the-art shopping, dining, and entertainment complex. It’s full to bursting with leading designer brand name stores, and all your favourite international chain restaurants, coffee shops and fast food joints. As the epicentre of Tokyo’s sumo scene, the area is full of restaurants serving chanko-nabe, an irresistible stew made with chicken, tofu, fish, and fresh vegetables, commonly eaten in huge quantities by wrestlers as they prepare to fight. If you stick to regular portions, however, it’s actually rather healthy.

How to get to Tokyo Sky Tree

Most international visitors arrive in Tokyo via Narita International Airport. It’s one of Japan’s busiest transport hubs, served by regular flights from major international cities like London, New York, Los Angeles, Paris, and Hong Kong. It’s usually easiest to travel into central Tokyo by rail, using either the Narita Express or the Keisei Skyliner services. Ryōgoku Station, on the Toei Ōedo subway line, is the closest station to most of Sumida’s major attractions.
