Finally, the Tokyo Sky Tree is open to the public! Until July 11, however, tickets are only available through a lottery. For us, it means in any case that it will have to wait until our next visit. We’ve watched the Sky Tree grow from its humble beginnings to impressive heights and into its final form right in front of our door step. While its outside aspect has not changed in the meantime, it does display a number of lighting patterns at special occasions. Here are two of them, seen during the cherry blossom festival at the Sumida river.
Even though the ticket price of 3000 Y is not exactly cheap, we’re sure to go up, for the view of Tokyo and to finally see it from top!
