Same-day tickets for Tokyo Sky Tree go on sale
Tobu Tower Skytree Co on Wednesday started selling same-day tickets for Tokyo Sky Tree. Since the tower’s opening on May 22, admission has been restricted to holders of tickets purchased in advance in order to avoid congestion.
A company spokesman said 420 people were lined up when tickets went on sale at 8 a.m. Wednesday, TBS reported. Tickets cost 2,500 yen to go up to the 350-meter-high observation deck. Entry to the 450-meter observation deck costs another 1,000 yen. The Tobu Tower Skytree Co spokesman said there will be a limit of 10,000 tickets sold each day, TBS reported.
As of Monday, more than 640,000 people have visited the two observation decks, the company said.
