A high visit for the Sky Tree today.

Emperor, empress visit Tokyo Sky Tree before opening

TOKYO (Kyodo) -- Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko on Thursday visited Tokyo Sky Tree, the world's tallest self-standing tower, prior to its grand opening in late May, the Imperial Household Agency said.

The imperial couple went up to the second deck, 450 meters above ground level, and enjoyed the vast sight of Tokyo after receiving an explanation about the 634-meter tower from the Yoshizumi Nezu, president of the tower operator's parent company, Tobu Railway Co., the agency said.

And they will most likely be followed by a majority of their citizens.

70% of adults want to go up Tokyo Sky Tree: survey

Jiji

Tokyo Sky Tree, the world's tallest free-standing tower, opens May 22 and people nationwide are keen to go up it.

Almost 70 percent of the 1,288 people polled in an April 6-9 Jiji Press survey want to take in Sumida Ward's new landmark, although some balked at the ticket prices. A ticket to the first observation deck, 350 meters above the ground, costs ¥2,000 for people aged 18 years or older. It costs an additional ¥1,000 to go to the second deck, 450 meters above the ground.

The poll found 88 percent of those interested in going up the tower said they want to visit the second observatory despite the additional cost.

When asked to list the perceived benefits provided by the tower, 63 percent of respondents pointed to the economic boost that would be provided by additional tourists.

All the tickets up to 1 July are already sold out, although you might be able to unofficially buy a ticket at a ticket reseller.

From today until next week you can reserve tickets for the period 1 July - 10 July from this website:
http://ticket.tokyo-skytree.jp/

After 7 May you can't buy tickets the official way until 10 July. From 11 July and onwards you can buy the tickets directly at the tower.


Tobu Travel still have special have special arrangements on sale in May and June. The prices are 7,300 yen for a dinner arrangement in the tower, or 21,200 Yen for a night at the Asakusa View Hotel (room with a view on the Sky Tree) + plus going up the Sky Tree itself.

How much in £'s is it to go to the top observation floor?

Brilliant tower, big and dominating, yet slim and elegant!

¥3,000 for the top observatory which would be around £23...

Sky Tree holds drill against terror attack

By MIZUHO AOKI
Staff writer

Some 1,900 people took part Monday in a terrorism-response drill at Tokyo Sky Tree based on the assumption that a toxic liquid like sarin was released on the 350-meter-high main observation deck.

Held about three weeks before the tower's May 22 opening, the first disaster drill to take place at such a high elevation was carried out jointly by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and Sumida Ward.

Some 400 Sumida Ward residents and 1,000 employees of Tobu Railway Co., the tower's developer, took part by playing the roles of visitors, while the metropolitan fire and police departments and Self-Defense Forces teams provided first aid and evacuated people to a nearby school while engaging in decontamination efforts.

About 100 of the participants climbed down some 2,000 steps to reach the ground from the observation deck, which is the lower of two on the 634-meter Sky Tree, the world's tallest free-standing tower.

The scenario on the observation deck, where only about 300 people were allowed to enter, was that a terrorist had sprayed the area with a toxic liquid and that 10 people, including the attacker, had collapsed. Firefighters and police in hazmat outfits rescued the 10 and carried them to the ground, where the injured were treated in emergency tents.

Tobu Railway is expecting some 200,000 visitors daily once the tower opens, and the lower observation deck can host 2,000 at any time, it said.
"This kind of drill cannot be conducted once (Tokyo Sky Tree) opens," Kunio Takatsuka, section chief of the metro disaster prevention department, told reporters after the drill.

"Many people are expected to visit here and we cannot deny the possibility of it becoming a terrorist target," Sumida Mayor Noboru Yamazaki said at the site, adding he hopes Monday's drill proves practical in the event of a real emergency.

Although organizers praised the exercise as successful, participants who couldn't go up to the observation deck or evacuate to the school questioned its effectiveness.

"We were told that we will evacuate to a nearby elementary school. But all we did was wait here with nothing to do," Hideko Ayukawa, 42, a Sumida Ward resident at the site with her son, told The Japan Times.

"Drills at my son's elementary school are far more meaningful than this."

The Sky Tree has also welcomed the first normal visitors as the local residents from the neighborhoods around the tower got the opportunity to go up to the 1st ob-deck a couple weeks before the official opening.

Luckily the visit was yesterday with somewhat grey weather, although the view above the clouds this morning would also have been spectacular.
