If you're looking for a way to get in the festive spirit this holiday season, the Tokyo Skytree Dream Christmas event runs right up until Christmas Day. Skytree itself will be illuminated in two different color combinations to represent a Christmas tree and a candle respectively, and the fun continues inside. The glass panels on the Tenbo Deck will be turned into a giant screen with a special Christmas program playing, there will be a range of fun photo spots, and even the window cleaners are decked out in Santa suits!
There is no fee to enjoy the outdoor illuminations, but the indoor events require a ticket for the Tenbo Deck. As pricing differs from weekdays to weekends, check the official site for details.
Tokyo Skytree can be conveniently accessed from either the Tokyo Skytree Station on the Tobu Skytree Line (2 minutes away on foot), or Oshiage Station on the Hanzomon Line (6 minutes away on foot).
There is also the Skytree Loop Bus which has several pickup points in Tokyo - details about the bus service can be found here.
