Shibuya new landmark Shibuya Sky: Enjoys the city beautiful day and night
About SHIBUYA SKY
SHIBUYA SKY is an open-air observatory located on the top floor of SHIBUYA SCRAMBLE SQUARE. It is mainly composed of 3 areas, namely “SKY GATE” from the ticket counter on the 14th floor to the entrance of the observatory on the 45th floor, the indoor observatory corridor “SKY GALLERY” on the 46th floor and The roof “SKY STAGE”. You can enjoy a 360-degree view of downtown Tokyo from the aerial observatory 230 meters above the ground.
Pre-purchase online tickets to book sunset slots in advance
Tickets for SHIBUYA SKY can be purchased at the on-site counter or online, and the editor recommends choosing the latter. There are time slots for admission, one session every 20 minutes, and there is no limit to the time of departure after entering. Most people want to enter during the sunset time, because it is really cost-effective to enjoy the day view, sunset “magic hour” and night view at one time. Therefore, the sunset period from 16:00 to 17:40 is full early, and you should not be able to enter the venue at this prime time if you buy tickets at the scene. You can buy tickets for the next month on the official website, and there is a discount of 200 yen. The editor still can only buy tickets for the 17:40 time slot two weeks in advance, and can only see the afterglow of the sunset when entering the venue.
In this indoor corridor, not only has the same open landscape, but also can enjoy the scenery here from a new angle by appreciating various artworks, including projection art, images displayed on electronic screens, etc. As for the details, we will leave it to you to discover for yourself
There is a bar “Paradise Lounge” in “SKY GALLERY”, which not only serves alcoholic drinks, but also provides some light meals. The editor saw that many people also had a drink here and enjoyed the intoxicating atmosphere of the night. It is really good if you come to play with friends or your significant other. Before going back, don’t forget to visit the souvenir shop. There are many unique products here, and it’s not unfeasible for everyone to buy souvenirs!
The location of SHIBUYA SCRAMBLE SQUARE is very convenient. It is directly connected to JR Shibuya Station, and it is easy to go to the nearby Miyashita Park or Gendozaka afterwards. After entering the shopping mall, take the elevator up to the 14th floor and you will arrive at the ticketing entrance. You can follow the instructions of the staff to take another dedicated elevator to the “SKY GATE” after queuing up during the designated entry time. If it’s not time for you to enter the mall, you might as well go to the 1st to 13th floors of the mall to stroll around. There are popular brands such as ABC-Mart, TOKYU HANDS, Kate Space, Nike, etc., but remember not to go too far.
