Was in the area so we decided to visit this instead of the other tall buildings. Was disappointed as we did not know what we were looking at . Mapping not sufficient. Interactive stuff cute but not if you did not speak Japanese. Did not visit the amusement park section of the circus.

I liked it up there, but you can get a really nice view of Tokyo from either one or the towers of the Metropolitan Government Building for free, whereas here you have to pay. If you want to pay, you might as well go to the Sky Tree.

Stumbled upon this in whilst shopping. Had no idea what to expect. Cost 1800¥ per person to get admission. Fun little interactive experience. Had an awesome view from the observatory. They also have 2 VR experiences running you have to pay extra for. We tried the swing one, was fun, but quite short. Would have liked to tried the cannon... More

We came here on a whim not really knowing what it was and I'm glad we did. Sky Circus is a fun twist on the average skyrise city observatory. It includes neat little activities like a mirror room and virtual views. We really enjoyed seeing the city in a different way. There is also a little cafe with great donuts!

Went there with my 11 year old daughter and friends. We had a great time. They've so many attractions that kids can really enjoy. Restaurants are available overlooking a nice vice view and for couples it might be a good idea to go in the evening. The entrance fee for adults will cost around 1,800 yen and kids for 900yen.

I was there to try the new VR machine. The whole sky circus decorated with fantasy theme. Ladies would be a big fan. The view is fantastic but it can't compare with the skytree view for sure. I like the price better than the skytree. If you ask me to choose between skytree and sky circus, I would go for... More

The views are worth the Y620 entry fee. You can however get the same experience by visiting the restaurants on the 59th floor.

If it is fine day, you can see Mt. Fuji, world legacy and the Japanese symbolic highest mountain 3776m above sea level in addition to crowded capital city Tokyo.

This is an easily accessible place to enjoy excellent night lights views over Tokyo. For a small fee you have an amazing lift ride in a very fast lift with a speedometer. On the 60th floor there are 360 degree vistas and some pretty cool novelty attractions. Spend plenty of time watching the city go by.
