Japan Visit - Tokyo Skytree

Early on during my visit to Japan, my mom and I headed out to see the Tokyo Skytree Tower and Solamachi (Village) - it opened just over a year ago, so it was extra new and exciting to see.

We arrived just before lunchtime, so we didn't have to wait for a table at one of the restaurants at the top of the tower - we got a table right by the windows for a great view while we ate our lunch (below).  I love how a lot of traditional Japanese restaurants still serve this sort of varied bento box-style food.

Here's what part of the tower looks like - it's a little difficult to get it all into one photo, especially with so many other people there too, haha.

The lower levels of the shopping village had a number of food stands all around - I obviously loved this Macaron Skytree, so fun! 

Even after spending a few hours here, I felt like there was so much more to check out - I would definitely recommend it for anyone visiting the area! 


  1. that is one place I'd like to visit the next time in Tokyo!
